Tour and a Work

Our thanks to everyone who came out for the tour this past weekend. It was a lot of fun with a lot of good questions and some quality time with the girls! Heather took a bunch of photos and we took a few and published them below for everyone.

MARYJEAN worked out this morning and fired a good one: four furlongs in :47.2, the fastest work at the distance today out of 24 horses. She’ll have a black dot (a “bullet”) next to that workout in the next Racing Form indicating that. In track slang that’s called “firing a bullet”.

We’ll enter on Thursday for Sunday so we’ll know on Thursday evening if the race fills and we’ll be racing.

    • We’re looking at a higher level than her last race. I hesitate to get more specific because she’s been running so well – all part of the poker game, though I’ve probably been too specific previously already!
