Location: Seattle, Washington, United States

What you have here is an old guy. In education for 30 years, started teaching elementary, ended as library and media director of community college. I've enjoyed mountain climbing, sports car rallying, was pipe major of a bagpipe band, played guitar and sang during the folk revival, walking and hiking later in life. Now fairly sedentary. Enjoy reading, esp. mysteries and fantasy, but my reading is pretty eclectic. Enjoy movies, giving Netflix a workout.

A Little Success

I haven't talked about our race horses of late. Actually I haven't talked about anything of late. One of my New Year's resolutions will certainly to to do better with this blog. Who knows? I might even garner a few readers if I wrote more often.

But this is about Seven Demons, our two-year-old colt. We've had a piece of him since before he was born, as we bought shares in Go Girl Gone before she was bred. We had to wait for two years until he came of racing age. He ran during the summer at Emerald Down in Auburn, WA. He didn't win but consistently came in second or third. After a short layoff he was shipped to Portland Meadows in Portland, OR. He didn't do very well there until last week. All of sudden he woke up and waltzed away with a win by ten lengths. We think he has grown and learned and maybe he's on the winning path. We're looking forward to seeing whether he can carry this winning attitude into this next summer at Emerald.

He's one of only two who are racing at present. Appealing Resume is running at Golden Gate in CA. Bella Cavalla has been bred to Grindstone, A Kentucky Derby and we expect a foal in the spring. Holy Mama has retired with an ankle injury and will be bred in the spring.

We're holding our breath that Boogie to Seattle will be sent to Kentucky to be bred to Big Brown, another Derby winner. Though we probably send her back to Kentucky for the Keeneland sales as a mare in foal. We think she will bring good money. Wish us luck.
