I Never Give Up will be making her debut for the Club on Wednesday at Oaklawn in a $16,000 Maiden Claiming race for 3-year old fillies going six furlong.
There were a pair of options when we went to enter: a $12,500 or a $16,000. When it became apparent that the $12,500 was not going to fill, we opted for the $16,000 so we could race before the end of the meet.
Alex Birzer, who had been riding her under the old connections, will retain the mount. We are, however, mired on the far outside in post 11. As we approach the end of the meet there are class droppers galore trying to get a win before they leave tow. We are moving up a little, so it is going to prove to be a pretty stern test. She is 8-1 on the Morning Line. Post time is 2:25 PM.
We’ll preview the race in a few days. Good luck everyone!
