Emmanuel Esquivel may be my hero. Three times he’s climbed aboard and three times he’s booted us home a winner. As the field moved through the first turn and he had her sitting all alone in fourth I turned to Heather and said, “This kid is good. She’s in the exact right spot – now she just needs to be good enough.”
Obviously she was, taking command in the lane and pulling away to win, making it look easy.
With two claims in the race, I thought that someone went ahead and took her but alas, that was not to be. We’ll be bringing them both back at this level in a few weeks and give them all another chance. It’s not that we necessarily want to let them go but we have to and I’m way okay winning our way to the end of the season.
With that win, The Club achieves back to back 4 win seasons and, with no claim, we have a chance of breaking our own record in the next month with another win.
I will get back in touch with the track photographer and see if he has anything for us that I can present to you.
The race seemed to set up perfect for Terice/us, and I totally agree on Esquivel. He and Alex have/are spoiling us. Like you said, let’s just keep winning our way to the end of the season…
Whoo hoo! Great race! She was placed perfectly and moved at the right time. She looked Tericefic! Looked like a couple of us were in the winner’s circle too. Nice job everyone!
Please put us on the list for 3 pictures now! 🙂
The race reply cuts off before the winner’s circle – which of our friends were there? Good race!
I saw 3 people file in to pose with the horse but I don’t know who they were. Maybe they will ‘fess up?
I’m guessing it was some of the guys from the barn and/or friends. I didn’t recignize anyone. But in glad someone jumped in!
You can see the people if you go to the photo at Four Footed Photos:
Another fun race to watch and they have been making it look easy..which we know it is not!!!
Thanks to the crew in Chicago for taking good care of our gals
I’m soooo sorry to see these girls go! What a wonderful pair of horses this year – wish we could keep them. Thanks for finding us some winners!
