Dancing Yodeler is scheduled to work Saturday, September 6 at 9:30 am (first after the break). The Breakfast at the Wire program ended in August, but you can still enter at the Quarterchute Cafe and walk up the track apron to watch the work.
Dancing Yodeler was also in the Emerald Downs Training Day video from Thursday. You can see him at :42 (for those of you viewing in the email, you’ll have to visit http://www.emeraldracingclub.com to view the video).
Yodeler’s Next Race
The current condition book goes through September 14 and there aren’t any races in the book that are suitable for Yodeler. However, the racing secretary may write an “extra” that suits him so there is a chance that there might be a race for him next weekend.
Dancing Yodeler will be sold at the end of the season. There currently is a group of Emerald Racing Club members that are pursuing putting together a syndicate to purchase him. If you’d like to be involved, contact Jim Engstrom (firstname.lastname@example.org). You do not need to be a current member to get involved.
Anelina continues to be on layup. The Club funds will cover her expenses until she finds a new home even if that continues beyond the end of the racing season. She will go to Sharon’s farm for layup.
Some of you have inquired as to the costs of continuing ownership of her. I hope to have a guest blog post regarding those expenses (as a broodmare) from Nina at El Dorado Farms shortly. Upon recovery, she should be sound for light riding (trail riding) or as a broodmare.
I saw many of you at the sale and understand some of you have acquired a young racehorse. Congratulations! For full sales recap, click here.
