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.
