MARYJEAN is going on Friday night. We entered her in a first level allowance race for horses that have never won a race outside of maiden, claiming and starters which is why she fits in this condition – she’s only ever won a maiden race and claimers.
We had the option of possibly dropping her down to $5,000 claiming to get a race but the thought was that there are times when these first level allowances come up light and she’s been training excellent so we’d give her a shot there with the option of dropping down later in the meet. The race is the 5th going six furlongs over the dirt with a purse of $28,500. Alex Canchari has opted to ride another in the race but we don’t miss a beat with Ry Eikleberry getting the mount.
Unfortunately (or fortunately), Friday night at the track is a very busy time and all the venues are booked so this is one of the rare times that the club will not have a place of our own for everyone to gather. I will meet you all in the paddock prior to the race.
Group 5, you all are up this time. As a reminder, group 5 consists of Schneidermann – Ziegler.
We are aiming for TERICE to run on August 9.
