Anelina to Work Saturday

There are NO BARN VISITS on Saturday and Sunday. Please respect Sharon and her staff as they prepare for a big weekend of races and refrain from visiting the barns.

However, Anelina is scheduled to return to the work tab on Saturday with her first work since the layoff. Since many of you are eager to see her, Sharon has scheduled the work for 9:30 am Saturday, and she will join Club members at the Breakfast at the Wire for the work.

Breakfast at the Wire – a casual morning workout show from 8 am – 10 am every Saturday morning in August. You can order breakfast for $6 (cash only) and watch the workouts while guests from the backstretch stop by to chat. It is located by the finish line under the building overhang by the Trackside Deli (south end of Grandstand, track level). Just enter the track by the paddock gate.

Paddock list will be posted Friday afternoon.

Upcoming Events

The WTBOA Yearling Sale is Tuesday, August 26. Beginning Saturday (8 am – 4 pm) is the yearling preview in the temporary stables. They are located at the North end of the barns and it is best to enter the North Security Gate (keep going North past the Quarter Chute Cafe on Emerald Downs Dr then turn right past the Sales Pavilion).

The sale starts at 2 pm on Tuesday and you will likely see me there, Will, Darrin, Rosy, and the whole crew! Be sure to say hi and we’re happy to walk through and offer our comments.

Also, yearling photos are being posted on the WTBOA website and are listed by hip number.

Hip 16

Hip 16

At the Sales Seminar we mentioned keeping an eye on Hip 16. The colt is by Lucky Pulpit (sire of KY Derby winner California Chrome) and out of the dam Eclante. This horse is a half brother to Trackattacker – winner of three straight and the most impressive two year old on the grounds. He set a track record in his first start, and a stakes record in his second start. He’s won his three starts for a combined 27 lengths. 74, 76, 59.  so we expect this handsome colt to get some attention thanks to his older brother.

Giving Back

Each year we the Emerald Downs Chaplain hosts a Backstretch BBQ Picnic and Carnival to benefit the Chaplaincy and it’s programs for backstretch workers.

They are looking for volunteers to help and I offered to spread the word to you:

Volunteers needed 8/27 from 1 – 4 pm, and Thursday 8/28 12 – 5 pm. If you are interested in assisting with setup, carnival games, and clean up please contact Jodi at wranglersj@comcast.net.

  1. Hi Sophia,

    I¹m going to be at the track on Saturday and Sunday, and would like to talk to Sharon and/or Larry about Celestial Council. I know Sunday will be crazy for them, so can you see if they would be available after their last race on Saturday to chat for a few minutes? Is Celestial Council going to kept in her regular stall, or will she be moved over to the sales area?

    Thanks,

    Donna

    • Hi Donna,

      Sharon will have time at the races Saturday around the 4th or 5th race (they are schooling 2 in the 4th race). Are you considering Celestial Council as a riding prospect or race prospect?
