Miz Owell finally has a stablemate, the 5-year old gelding Vanderboom Ridge. Boomer is by Borrego and out of the Come Summer mare Cristina Ridge, bred in Kentucky by Winchester Place Thoroughbreds.
This is one that we’ve been following for a while now. He was a bit expensive, and perhaps overpriced, at $20,000, this drop to $10,000 was very appealing so we dropped the slip and got the Club a new runner.
He’s run 18 times now with 3 wins, 3 seconds and a third. He’s been successful on the dirt and turf and has been competitive from $10,000 – $20,000 so we should have some nice options going forward. We’ll get him back to the barn, give him a once over and he’ll walk for a few days before heading back to the track and we’ll look for his next start.
Speaking of Miz Owell, she may have been a little tired late in the last race from her earlier colic episode but that has shown no signs of returning. She was galloping over the track today and came back well. Miz Owell is being pointed to a race on August 6 – another $7500 over the grass at 7 1/2 furlongs, but more on that as we get closer.
