ASK EDDY will be running for the first time for us without a claiming tag on Friday night in the 5th race. The condition is a starter allowance for horses that have raced for a claiming price of $5000 or less OR $7500 claiming. As a refresher, if you ran for $5,000 or less you do not have to be eligible to get claimed or you can enter for $7500.
The field is only 6 horses but there is definitely some competition at the top – including us. Alex Canchari has opted to ride another horse in the race so we will retain the services of Nik Goodwin.
The 5th race should go off around 8:35. My kids are landing at MSP at 8:57 so, unless there is a delay in their flight, I will end up missing the race, though either Jeff or Jilique will be there to more than ably fill in.
More details to follow as well as the analysis of the race later in the week.
