Summer is winding to a close, Saratoga is over, Belmont starts today, the Meadowlands starts soon, Monmouth is almost finished. Change is on the horizon as we start to focus on our winter plans. We have stalls at Palm Beach Downs in S.Florida and may also have some at either Palm Meadows, Gulfstream or Calder depending on availability. We are also thinking of leaving a small string up north to compete in state bred races as well.
Oklahoma Den is in Sunday at Monmouth in the 8th race, which is the final of the Malouf starter series on the grass. He finally drew a decent post position (5 of 9) in the 1 3/8th race which may be contested on less than firm turf depending on how much rain we get on Saturday. If the race gets rained off the turf we will scratch and look at a race at Belmont for him.
Lyle's Angel is also in on Sunday at Monmouth. She is in the 4th race which is a conditioned $7500 race going 6 furlongs. There looks like quite a bit of speed which should set things up well for her.
Triplehott had her 3rd four furlong work on Tuesday and went really well. Working by herself under an exercise rider she went 49.2 which was the 4th fastest of 15 and galloped out in 102. She is going to do some gate work this weekend and will probably work out of the gate next Wednesday. I am really pleased by her development.
Killingit is going to work 5f tomorrow morning and if he does well we are looking at a potential race the following Saturday at Monmouth going 1 mile on the grass.
Finishlikeapro is also working tomorrow at Monmouth. He is scheduled to work 6 furlongs and is also sitting on top of a race.
Pleasantly Miranda came out of her debut last week in good order. We will be looking to stretch her out in her next race.
My Beholder is pointing to a maiden race next Saturday the 13th at Monmouth. We are going to add a set of blinkers for his next race.
Killer Bird was a little dehydrated so we back off her for a few days but she has responded nicely and will work again early next week.
Shares Available has been doing some gate schooling and has made great strides in that area. He will also work again early next week when the temperatures are a little lower.
Midas Terms worked well at Westampton yesterday and may be spotted next out at the Meadowlands on the grass in his return to the races.
All Peace N Quiet came out of her race in good order and will most likely be racing back at Penn National soon.
JC Monba is heading back to the track after a short period turned out for some R&R.
Runhappy is also headed that same direction, back into full training after some down time.
Misterlobo continues to recover from being gelded and has not had any issues.
Better than Safe got hit in the eye during her race last week which caused her to stop so abruptly. Hopefully there will be no complications.
One Revolution gets her final treatment tomorrow. Hoping she can resume normal training soon.
