Still going strong at Sunray

Trainer Drew Fulmer had two entries on Saturday at Sunray Park in Farmington, NM.  Remus ran in the 7th race.  The horse did what he was asked.  Unfortunately, it didn’t appear that the jockey asked for much and Remus just followed his lead.

I was unhappy to see that Remus finished last in the race.  He is a fabulous horse that has had the worse luck imaginable.  It’s too bad that there is no way of reflecting a poor ride in the stats, but that’s what Saturday’s race appears to have been.  Remus is a veteran horse and I expect he will prove his value in a coming race.  It’s just too bad that it wasn’t this race.  As I’ve always believe, there is a great deal of luck associated with racing and today the luck just didn’t shine through.  I also believe that a jockey can make or break you and although the horse and trainer do everything right, a poor ride can make a significant difference.

Drew’s second entry was Atticus Ghost.  Atticus Ghost was raised in class and proved that she is really something special.  Although she started out slow and was allowed to settle, maybe a little too long, she still managed to come in second.  I am really pleased with her progress and believe we were lucky when we claimed her.  I am not sure if there will be another race for her before the end of the meet, but she proved to be a real asset.   So far she raced three times at Sunray Park and got two 2nds and one win.  As far as I am concerned, that’s quite an accomplishment and must praise our trainer Drew Fulmer for doing such a great job with her.

Drew entered her in a $10,000 Starter Optional Claiming Race and I was worried that it was too hard of a race for her. Her last race which was a win was a $5,000 claiming race. Well, she proved me wrong and proved once again that our trainer is not only the best, he’s almost always right! Thanks Drew!
