Vanderboom Ridge seized the lead heading through the turn yesterday at Hawthorne, wore down Jesuit Warrior but was unable to hold off the charge of eventual winner Happy Moro. Boomer finished 2nd and picked up a check for $1560 for the effort.
We will see how he came out the race over the next couple of days and then determine his future. He’s a pretty sound bugger and certainly could continue a racing career and could be sold to that end. He also good natured and nice to be around and could be a good pleasure horse when his racing days are done. We’ve already had some interest in him so we will do what is best for the horse while maintaining our fiduciary responsibility to the Club.
