I think if I throw out the months I was away from the game, this has been the best year on record for Coleman Branch. Nine out today, with very pleasing results.
[color=red]Tothemoonandback found the winner’s circle for the second time, wiring the field of 10 in a NW2 for 2yo’s. Hopefully she’ll keep up her winning ways now that she seems to have stopped growing. 1st/10
[color=red]Taking Vegas continues to impress with her fourth money-earning trip in a row. Looks like she enjoys shorter distances. She’s stakes placed over 9.5f, but took charge over 7.5f in a NW2 for 3yo+F. 1st/6
[color=red]Frontier Days is a claim I’m glad I made back in January. This is her second victory in as many starts, most recently a Starter Allowance for 3yo. 1st/6
[color=green]Epsilon might just be finding his feet (FINALLY). After basically not running at all his first two years on the track, he earned his third win in four starts this season over 10f in a NW3 SC for 3yo+. 1st/6
[color=blue]Pay the Boatman earned himself a plane ride to Australia after winning his third straight, a 7.5f NW3 for 2yo. He’ll be trying stakes company in a few weeks and needless to say, I’m hoping he proves himself worthy. 1st/9
[color=blue]Highland Devil is still something of a work in progress, but I’m fine with his effort in a 7f NW1. Longer distances should do good things for him. 2nd/11
[color=red]Sylviianel remains winless, but continues to earn money. I’m not entirely sure what to do with her just yet. Her latest effort was over 12f in a NW2. 3rd/6
[color=red]Margaritaville is always consistent, slowly working her way toward Ch. status. I’ll probably shorten her up a bit next time out, after her latest, a 13f Allowance. 3rd/9
The only kid off the board today was [color=blue]Homesteader, 5th/6 in a NW3 for 2yo. Not sure whether it’s a D/S or equipment change that he needs. Ah, well. We’ll keep trying!
