Belle will be moving to Arkansas with the rest of the Litfin stable in about a week. Before she leaves she’ll get a breeze at the training center to test her out and make sure she’s ready to roll and we’ll enter her at Delta Downs. She’s been training well and her ankle is healing nicely, though slower than we would have liked – though she’s finally nearly ready.
We are also actively looking to sell her off. If that comes first we may forgo shipping to Delta and adding the extra cost. If we can sell her in Kentucky, we’d do that as well.
While she’s caused her own issues at the end here, I think if I had to do it again I would have sent her to Hawthorne with Clay. With the lower level of racing there we perhaps could have won a race or two and had her claimed in the process because she would have looked more attractive there than she did in Kentucky. Hindsight is 20/20, though, and we’ll make the most of it.
