We definitely are ready to rumble — but the big question is “Will it be Rumble or Stumble?” Horse Racing is a risky tricky business and we will soon see if we can keep the magic alive. We have two horses entered on Sunday.
Elusive Moment is in a race that is a very short distance so the trick of this one is getting out of the gate and going. There have been times when Elusive Moment has been hesitant at the gate and this definitely is not the race for that. I talked to him the other day and told him that we needed him to help us out. I plan to see him again tomorrow and remind him that a win would be great!
Our other entry is Berry Valid. She is one of the most beautiful horses in our barn. She is also my youngest son’s favorite. I think she is ready and we have one of the leading jockeys riding her so it looks promising. A win from her is past due so I hope she will cooperate.
Our trainer Drew Fulmer has a horse entered on Monday named Remus. Remus is a fabulous horse with fantastic bloodlines. So far the trainer has only been able to get a 2nd place from Remus. I am hoping that luck will be with him this time out, but Remus might need a race on the Turf Paradise track in order to succeed. Only time will tell.
We are also planning to claim another horse very soon and finally got all our funds together. I will be happy to report on that claim when it is completed and highlight our new partners in this venture. We have a group called Pony Express Racing and the horse will run under that stable name this season. Watch for Pony Express Racing — I think we have a winning combination!
