The Tale of Boogie to Seattle
But such are the vagaries of racing. Boogie showed little desire to run this year. Our trainer, one of the best at Emerald Downs, tried everything. We ran her short at 6 furlongs; we ran her long at a mile. We ran her from the back of the pack and we tried her up front. She just didn’t seem to want to run. Friday evening she acted up at the starting gate. She finished last in a five horse field. It was decided to retire her.
Her grandsire was Storm Cat and back in her pedigree is Unbridled Song and A.P. Indy. So her breeding is pretty darn good. Boogie will be bred to Demon Warlock, one of Washington’s top sires and the sire of our two-year-old colt, Seven Demons. We hope he will contribute some of his heart, courage and willingness to run to the foal. So now we have another foal to look forward to. Wish us luck.
