Taking it Day by Day


On a rainy Wednesday morning, Tammy fills us in on a possible race…”we may be forced to run in her in a spot that may not fit her as well as I would like…”

Unfortunately, the race did not fill for Saturday. In the video above, Tammy discusses what needs to happen while we near the end of the meet.

We will keep you updated.



Once Again, No Go

The race did not fill again today and it is not back as an extra on the overnight. The race is in the condition book for Aug. 22 going a route and on Aug. 28 going short. If the office hasn’t been able to fill this race at all this week I don’t see how they can get both of those to go so we may be forced to enter the route.

There is a chance that you get last chance stabbers entering N2L types into a race like that just to run one final time but passing the route in hopes that the sprint will fill could mean not having a race at all.

Normally having a horse with conditions is a good thing but it sure has not been here in August.

Tammy D and Desert Storm

Although there has been no races for Tahitian Queen, Tammy has kept busy with Desert Storm, the camel. On Sunday, Canterbury Park’s popular Extreme Race day, the four camels loaded into the gate seconds before they flew open. Contrary to popular belief, Tammy’s camel was not the fastest. On the rail, Desert Storm (50-1) morning line, loped along half-heartedly and came in third. Maybe Desert Storm needed some blinkers? We always have next year. Good job Tammy!


Race Doesn’t Fill

11:37AM – Just heard that the race did not fill. This is disappointing and puts a damper on the plans to run twice before the end of the meet.

2:07PM – I met with your trainer at noon. “There’s nothing we can do about it. Hopefully the race will go on Thursday,” she said. “Otherwise it is open company and I am not too thrilled about that.”
Seven thoroughbred races were used for Sunday. Field size was ok except for two six horse fields, one being an allowance with four trainers handling the six horses. Unfortunately a couple more horses could not be hustled into TQ’s race or it would have been used as it was in the book and the allowance was an extra.
