Appealing Resume and Boogie to Seattle are racing at Golden Gate Fields in northern CA. They are fillies, aged 4 and 3 respectively. AR raced at Emerald last year, took some time off from late August to March was then was sent to run at Golden Gate. Seven Demons is a 2-yr.-old who has been broken and been to the track to train, but was sent to his home farm to let his knees develop. He should be back in June to resume training at Emerald and could race by July. Our fourth is a mare, Bella Cavalla, who is to be bred to Grindstone, the winner of the 1996 Kentucky Derby. We will have to wait several years to see what the offspring will do at the track.
Appealing Resume has had some success at Golden Gate, winning four in a row and stepping up in class each race. Last time out she met horses of her own level, running third. Boogie was ready to race up here, but couldn’t find a race so the partners shipped her to Golden Gate also where she will become accustomed to the track before racing.
Currently we are disappointed to have no horse to watch. The partners attempted to claim a lower level horse last Friday. She won her race, but there were several claims in on her and we lost the draw. Gizmo Girl went to another barn. We’re still looking. Wish us luck. I’ll keep you posted. Maybe I won’t neglect this blog so much if I write about the horses and the track.
