Yodeler Entered Sunday & Upcoming Seminar and Farm Tours

Dancing Yodeler is “back in” for Sunday, July 27. If you’ve been following along in the most recent edition of the Condition Book, book # 6, you would not see a race for him. That is because the race he entered is Xtra 7 on the overnight.

yodeler xtraThese are essentially the same “conditions” as his last race. He has only won one race since April 12, 2014 making him eligible for this race. He will carry 124 lbs as an “older” horse and will run for the $3,500 claiming price over 6 1/2 furlongs.

He is breaking from post 4 in a field of seven horses. Jockey Leslie Mawing is back aboard.

To RSVP for paddock consideration, please click here. A reminder if you’ve already visited the paddock, do not RSVP.

Tickets will be left at Will Call window under Emerald Racing Club if you plan to bring additional guests.

It’s also Food Truck Day at the track Sunday, so come hungry, leave happy. We have 10+ trucks in the Park including last year’s People’s Choice Winner Evolution Revolution.

Syndicates & Partnerships

This week the Paulick Report posted an article on partnerships on their website and interviewed the managers of four high level syndicates. I thought you might find it an interesting read after our recent blog post. “Ownership Insights: Partnerships.”

The Paulick Report is an industry website that reports racing news, industry news and breeding news. It’s also a bit of a sounding board for race fans so you might get an eyeful if you read through some of the comments on particularly inciting articles. The Paulickreport.com and Bloodhorse.com are the two main horse racing news websites. Bloodhorse carried their hard copy magazine onto their web presence and Paulick Report pulls articles from multiple sources (including Bloodhorse).

  1. Hi Sophia, I am confused but I confuse easily so it’s probably just me. I followed your link to the condition book but saw Saturdays date not Sunday. Perhaps it’s because I don’t understand the ” X7 ” . Does that mean it’s an extra race and can be ran on any day of the weekend? Also, can you let me know which Race Yodeler will be running in. Will it be 7th race or the last race of the day Sunday (or Saturday) ?

    • Hi Doris,

      Great question! Yodeler was entered in Xtra 7 displayed at the bottom page of the overnight for Saturday’s races. The Xtras are the races we can enter that are in addition to the pre-planned condition book. It’s easy to get confused! If you look up Sunday’s overnight, you will see “Xtra 7” is carded as race three on Sunday.

      I should have linked to Sunday’s overnight as well. You can also find it at emeralddowns.com under Racing>Overnights. There you will find Yodeler’s race.

  2. LOL! I didn¹t see this email before I sent you the other oneŠ
