Congratulations, you are the new owners of Tribal Waters!
Tribal Waters is a four year old, bay gelding by Tribal Rule (sire aka “Dad”) and out of Rio Tejo (dam aka “Mom”).
Tribal Waters was purchased privately this week and will be on a horse van to Emerald Downs tomorrow.
Because we purchased him privately, he is not subject to the 45 day “jail rule” that Charlie is subject to.
He has 10 lifetime starts, 2 wins, 1 second, 1 third and lifetime earnings of $38,827. All of his starts have been in sprints and his body type is more “sprinter” than “route” horse. Once he arrives we’ll do conformation comparisons between him and Charlie as their builds are very different.
Past Performances: Tribal Waters
Because Tribal Waters has never raced at Emerald Downs, he is eligible for the Ship and Run Incentive Program. That program provides $400 for a horse whose most recent start was made outside of Washington and that has not previously started at Emerald Downs. It will be deposited into the Emerald Racing Club account upon his first start. The program is designed to alleviate some of the expenses of racehorse ownership.
Charlie did not meet the eligibility for the incentive because he raced at Emerald Downs last year.
