The meet at Albuquerque Downs is over. It has been a little trying to say the least. The number of races for which our horses qualified were few so we didn’t have much opportunity to compete. The track at Albuquerque is heavy and deep. Our horses are accustom to the track at Turf Paradise which is hard and fast. At Albuquerque Downs, many of our horses tired early.
Happily the Fulmer Racing Team is on its way to Sunray Park in Farmington, NM. It is with great joy and anticipation that our horses will be in Farmington. Sunray’s track is more to the liking of our horses so ti is definitely a welcomed change.
Our last two races at Albuquerque Downs gave us one third place. Tonight at Eleven finished third, but the impressive thing was that he finished the race so well. He came between horses and never gave up. Tonight at Eleven hasn’t been our most successful horse, but he will always be my favorite. He has so much character and in his early career, he was not given the opportunity to succeed. He was unruly and somewhat troublesome. It was not until Drew Fulmer started training him that he became a great horse.
So off to Sunray and dreams of winning races.
