Thanks for everyone who came by to join us for coffee and donuts Saturday morning. We had a great time hanging out, talking about the season and spending an hour of our time with Nevada doing some Q&A on not only our horses but training and the industry in general.
I Never Give Up will be kicking off Closing weekend Friday night when she takes on a full field of 13 in the race 1. Keep in mind that Friday night post time is a special 5:00 PM post – NOT 6:30. Groups 3 AND 4 are welcome in the paddock so everyone can get through for the 3rd time. She is breaking from post position 4 so it will be important that we do not crowd posts 3 and 5, so please be aware!
Dean Butler picks up the mount in the $10,000 claiming race. We got the class drop and we’re on the turf but the distance is a mile and a sixteenth. Hopefully the big drop from Maiden Special Weight will be enough to make up the difference from the sprint to a route. However, it’s not like she’s been in a disaster in her longer attempts as well and Butler has one of the best clocks in his head in the jockey colony so we’re in good hands.
The preview will be up later in the week and we’ll let you know if the Club has space then as well.
See you Friday night!
