We learned that Dos Cuernos means “Two Horns” in Spanish. It should mean “great eater of hay”, however. Reports out of the Litfin barn is that Horny enjoys his alfalfa hay more than anyone else in the barn. He’s put on some weight, muscled up some and is training well.
It is very likely that we will have one start at Oaklawn before heading north to Canterbury. We would anticipate him running at the same level we claimed him at ($6250) or at least close to it. We should know more about that in the next few days. As mentioned in a previous post, we’re not allowed to run until the Oaklawn meet is over and, since the meet isn’t over until Derby Day, that precludes us from running opening weekend. The timing should work out well to come back and run the second weekend of the meet depending upon on the races available (keep and eye out later this week for a post on the Condition Book and selecting races).
Horses should be arriving at Canterbury in a week to 10-days and we’ll start looking forward to racing at home!
As a reminder, your VIP card will be coded identifying you as a Club member and provide you free admission throughout the meet. If you don’t have a VIP card, you can pick one up at the information booth outside the card club near the valet parking entrance. You will need to have your card scanned for admission on race days. And don’t forget to use it when placing your bets or playing cards to earn points for a wide range of rewards (you can get details on the program at the information booth).
