We are pointing TENS WILD to opening day at Hawthorne. There is a mile and a sixteenth on the turf on Friday, October 2 at $16,000 which is right in our boy’s wheelhouse. He heads out tomorrow night or Wednesday, will get settled in and he’ll get trained up to that race.
This was discussed in the comments but I’ll put it up as well so we are all on the same page:
With great appreciation from our part, Canterbury Park does a lot for us when possible. We all get free admission and a place to gather for the race as well as paddock and winners’ circle access. This is not the case at other tracks.
Should anyone go to Hawthorne, we’ll have to pay admission and we won’t have paddock access. That said, there really isn’t any paddock access at Hawthorne except for trainers and grooms. It is inside and underground so there are only stalls and a small walking ring. Should we win, however, we can get in the picture, so be sure and smile! Entries are not drawn until September 29 so we won’t know for a couple of weeks if the race goes so stay tuned.
Click on the below for the August financial statement. In a shocker, we actually got an on-time vet bill so we are pretty much up to date!
We’ll be looking forward to watching this race(if it goes) on one of the big screens at a Race Book in Las Vegas. What a good way to end a trip to Vegas with a win and see it in the Race Book. Hope for a couple of wins this fall before we have to part with Tens Wild. Should make the financials look pretty good by the end of the year!
Looks like Tens Wild had a very nice workout on Tuesday. He went 4 furlongs and was 1st of 8 going 47.4. He got his bullet workout that Ted talked about in an earlier post. Looks like he is ready to roll. Look forward to seeing him on the big screen at a race book in Vegas on the 2nd(if the race goes). It would be nice to see him get on a roll for the Club.
