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.
These 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).

Sales Prep Farm Tour:
Saturday, August 9 we are coordinating a Sales Prep Farm Tour. This is being hosted by the WTBOA and it’s members, and they will provide bus transportation from Emerald Downs to the various farms and then return to the track in time for the day’s races.
Emerald Downs will be providing box lunches for you upon your return to the track (or for those just attending the races).
Space will be limited for this and I’ll coordinate an RSVP next week. Seats for the bus will be on a first come, first serve (ERC member +1).
Detailed schedule will also be provided next week.
