Looks like we’ve finally used up all that luck we had gotten a hold of. This one was a bummer of a day. Best we could do was third, and she got an injury out of it, too. Sigh…
Ch. Dread Pirate (5yo, As You Wish) in the Belmont Breeders’ Cup (Gr. 2) - Pretty impressive, all things considered, since she finished with an injury. Going home for a nice, long rest before the BC.
Ch. War Penny (5yo, Black Warrior) in an Allowance - Probably only one or two more races left for her before I eventually retire her. She’s been struggling to keep up recently. I think she’s more of an early runner.
Ch. Chasing Gold (5yo, Witness) in the Ruffian Stakes (Gr. 1) - Ok-ish performance. I think she was running against a pretty tough crowd. Didn’t come home with a fun prize, but she did still come home with enough to cover her entry and a nice, shiny champion title.
Ch. Boy King (5yo, Akhetnaten) in the Newcastle Newmarket Handicap (Gr. 3) - Not thinking I’m gonna get those last three wins out of him, sadly. I think he’s becoming more of a crotchety old man. Lol.
Flawless Sugar (3yo, Prince Of Wonder) 6th in a NW3 Allowance - For Sale
Super Aksala (3yo, Superdocious) 6th in an Allowance
Ch. Aria (5yo, TakeMeToHollywood) 7th in the Belmont Breeders’ Cup (Gr. 2) - A HUGE disappointment here. I had her slated for the BC, but now I’m beginning to have my doubts. She’s going back home for a rest until I decide whether or not I’m willing to gamble on her.
Ch. Pepper Road (5yo, Nightfight) 6th in the Newcastle Newmarket Handicap (Gr. 3)
