Canterbury Closes; EDDY Moves to Chicago

As the 2013 season sets on Canterbury Park, our ASK EDDY is resting in the Brinson barn before heading out to Chicago to take on horses at Hawthorne Park.

EDDY came back from the race a little uneven. Juan noticed that he was coughing pretty good so Clay order a scope to determine if there were any breathing issues. As it turns out, EDDY had bled through his Lasix during the race and, on a scale of 1 – 10 with 10 being the worst, EDDY’s bleeding was a six.

This doesn’t mean that EDDY is through, only that adjustments are going to need to be made for him. It also means that he showed a lot of grit, heart and determination to close the way he did under the duress he must have been under.

After some rest, EDDY’s Lasix does will be upped and he will be equipped with a figure eight bridle as well as a tongue tie to help him breathe. There are a several types of adjunct medications to go with the Lasix as well that Clay and the vet will go over to see what will be best. There is no reason that EDDY won’t be as good as new – or at least as he was!

I wish we could have won more and I especially wish that MUNDY would have worked out better than she did, but I thoroughly enjoyed working with you all live this summer and I hope that we have the opportunity to do it again next year – at least for those of you that decide to come back and not form your on groups, go out on your own or join existing partnerships (and I know someone that can help you with that!). As always, feel free to contact me at with any questions that you have – about the Club or racing in general – and I’ll do what I can to answer you.

The work doesn’t end here, however. I will be working on getting our group licensed in Illinois over the next couple of weeks and we will have more races to run before the 2013 Canterbury Race Club draws to a close.

  1. Thanks Ted, it sure has been a lot of fun! Please thank Clay and his staff as well, they take very good care of the horses.

    Will we be getting a financial statement soon?

    I still am interested in becoming part of a group (in a small way).

  2. Thanks Ted it’s been a lot of fun and a great learning experience! I would assume you will let us know when eddy runs in Illinois. Take care and thanks again for all your work you’ve done for the club great job! Sam & Julie Dalton.

  3. Thank you for all your help and education on racing. I have learned a lot and look forward to seeing how Eddie closes out the season.

    • As I mentioned in the post, EDDY bled through his lasix so he will get some rest. Since Hawthorne doesn’t open until October 2, we have plenty of time to get him back on track. If he is not claimed from us by the end of the year, by the terms of the Club we will look to sell him privately. Hawthorne runs until almost the end of the year.

  4. Indeed…thanks Ted for running it all this year. You were great!

    I was in the group last year, and I’ll just say that having a horse running in Chicago extends the summer/fall! Very fun to keep having a horse to follow. Hawthorne is broadcast every day at CBY, so we can see and bet on all of Eddy’s races.

    That said, it is always better for the group to have the last horse claimed rather than sold privately, so don’t worry if the December race placements are unusual. By contract we have to dissolve this particular partnership by the end of the calendar year, so that figures into Ted’s calculations as well. We get to form a new partnership next year if CBY will keep helping us do it.

    Looking forward to seeing everyone at the track next spring!
