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.
