Next Step – A Horse (or Two!)

The final accounting isn’t quite completed yet but we know one thing: 2014 is another year of record membership for the Canterbury Racing Club. Thanks to all that joined to make that possible. The only question that remains is: did we make it to 200 members? We should know in the next few days and also have the final accounting of just how much money we have to spend, though it looks like it will be slightly more than last year or just over $50,000.

This weekend I will be completing the Club’s ownership license application for Illinois as well as the application to claim. Clay and I have already looked at a few and are keeping an eye on others so really anytime from next week could be the pick up of the first horse.

The plan is to try and claim a couple of horses around $10,000. This would allow us to run for more money over the summer, hopefully have a couple of horses that we can move up in class or, if necessary, have some downside if we need to drop in class to get a win.

When the final tally is added up, we’ll post the final Club totals and we’ll also keep you posted on claims.
