Yodeler tentative to work Friday, barn visits Saturday

Yodeler had a visit from the dentist on Monday! He had his teeth “floated” which is a term to describe having the sharp edges of his teeth filed down. This is typical maintenance for most horses to ensure that they are able to chew properly and get the most from their feed.

He is tentatively scheduled to work a 1/2 mile on Friday morning at approximately 9:20 am. You are welcome to come out to watch and he will be wearing his saddle towel.

However, if the work goes as planned, that means he will walk on Saturday and will not train on the track.

Saturday, we do plan to still have barn visits so if you’d like to attend, plan on meeting at the track apron above the paddock at approximately 10:30. Dana and Rosy will take groups down to the barn from there. Wear your lanyard please and friends and family are welcome to attend.

A reminder that Saturday is KY Derby Day and we have an early post time of 1 pm.

See you Saturday!

  1. Hi Sophia,

    It was a pleasure meeting and talking with you on Sunday, liked your Rachel poster.  Just wondering, do you have any more information on the horse, I believe it was Mr. Happy, you mentioned to me, when I visited with Sharon.  Would this be a horse that would be available for possible purchase???  Is he looking for a home???

    • Hi Scott,

      I believe the horse was Happy Childhood. I’ll inquire with Sharon and see if he if shares in him are available for purchase. If I recall correctly, he is still a maiden.

      Regards,
      Sophia

    • Hi Larry,

      I understand your impatience to get a second horse. We also would like to get another equine member in the Club! It took us over a month to find Yodeler. We go through the entries at Golden Gate daily, but here’s an example of what we are looking at from today:

      Race 1 – Claiming $7,000 – $8,000, Turf (Not looking for a turf horse.)
      Race 2 – Maiden Claiming $8,000 (Not looking for a maiden)
      Race 3 – $6,250 Claiming, 5f (This race has potential for a horse but then when you look closer: 1 horse is a 4K claimer, 2 horse has been off for 2 years, 3 horse has been off for a year, 4 horse also had two years off, 5 horse broke maiden for $5k-we watched horse in the paddock in last start and was really washed out, 6 horse unable to win for 3500nw2)
      Race 4 – $20,000 Claiming (That type of horse hardly runs at EmD)
      Race 5 – Claiming $10,000, Turf (Not looking for turf horse)
      Race 6 – Maiden Claiming $5,000 (Not looking for a maiden)
      Race 7 – Claiming $12,500-$10,500 (Again, too rich for the program at EmD)
      Race 8 – Maiden Claiming $32,000-$30,000 (too rich for the program at EmD)

      Other horses that we’ve been approached to purchase privately are then “not for sale” when we mention a vet check prior to purchase. We have a responsibility to do our due diligence in acquiring a horse that is productive and sound. We are also open to suggested horses, so if one catches your eye, by all means let us know, and we will follow up with inquiries.

  3. Tell me what’s wrong with King Street Duke, as a claim, ross’s remarks welcome Ran Friday first race, had 10# of mud on him in the stretch still made and effort Mark Dedomenico can’t have a 5000 dollar claimer in his stable at Emerald Downs Won’t make enough here to pay training cost at his barn, I think he’d like to unload it if it wins here it will be shipped out to Calf. or Hastings, that’s there history So what’s the risk in approaching them about a sale? Claiming a horse in Calf. and waiting to run 45 days later, is to long to keep interest, be 6/15 or better before run. so, I’m a club member, and I want to know what were doing to get another horse From: larry.streck@hotmail.com To: comment+cybrqixfx6n48kkmza4i0-@comment.wordpress.com Subject: RE: [New post] Yodeler tentative to work Friday, barn visits Saturday Date: Fri, 9 May 2014 18:15:16 -0700

    • Hi Larry,

      Duke Street King ran a game race last night. On first look, this is what would steer us away from him:
      1) We intend to bring a horse from outside the existing horse population – hence looking at Golden Gate primarily.
      2) He had an entire year off from April 20, 2013 to April 12, 2014. Horses typically don’t have that much time off unless they have an injury of some sort.
      3) He returns after a year layoff in a Maiden Claiming $5,000 after having been running in Maiden Claiming $30,000. A stout drop, and still the best he does is 4th in his return and then 2nd last night.
      4) There’s not much further you can drop if you can’t break your maiden for $5,000.
      5) We were approached about buying this horse privately in March and mainly were cautious of a four-year-old maiden that was off for a year.

    • Hi John,

      Yodeler is “in jail” until May 19. The next condition book is expected out Thursday and Sharon should be able to see if there are any races appropriate for him then. Once he is running, provided he stays sound and happy we can expect to see a race for him every two to three weeks.
