Lilly is back next Tuesday evening in the seventh race. It’s a 5 furlong sprint over the grass: a $12,500 optional claiming race. It’s not exactly the race we wanted but it is the race that was there. As we all have learned by now, there is no perfect race so you take your shot when you can! We hope that we can get one more in before the end of the meet should we still have her after the race.
We did enter her for the tag because we can’t keep her at the end of the year, so no snese protecting her this late in the season. Besides, it keeps the 1X condition should anyone decide to take her. The likelihood of a claim probably isn’t there, but she’s young, has shown promise and is healthy as can be, so she isn’t unattractive either.
She will break from post 5 and Betty Jo Williams will be aboard.
Later in the week we will have admission procedures. As you know they have bounced around a bit so we will make sure that we have the latest nailed down and post that here.
I will also have all the winner’s circle photos with me for the folks that want them – including Ender’s win at Remington from last year.
