We managed to make it so far during the long summer of racing in New Mexico. Our home base is Turf Paradise in Phoenix, AZ. It’s been a tough summer trying to win a few races here and there.
We had some really promising entries at the end of the meet at Sunray Park in Farmington, NM but it rained so intensely that the track was flooded and the last four days of racing were cancelled.
Fortunately, Albuquerque Downs has a short meet that starts on September 11th. Our trainer Drew Fulmer did a fabulous job finding races for some of our horses and he has five entries. On Saturday, Inclined to Win and Pursuxit are running. Sun Catcher is scheduled to run on Sunday. Yuma Thurman and Elusive Moment are entered in races on Septmber 16th and 17th.
We got our fingers crossed that this will prove to be a profitable venture. We are keeping the faith and hoping for the best. Our horses are healthy and ready to run so here we go.
After that, my equine kids will all be coming home. I live less than a mile from Turf Paradise so I will be visiting my horses as soon and as often as I can. Having the horses near brings me the greatest joy. They are professional athletes, but they are my sweethearts.
