In the replay for Tribal Waters you’ll see that he was running well and then the jockey appears to check strongly around the turn. Jockey Joe Steiner reported that TW started to “lug out” on the turn. We are aware that Tribal Waters has a history of this and we have him in a special bit to help him around the turn. We’ll check him out physically and then Sharon may tinker with his equipment again to give the rider more control.
Charlie Thomas Claimed Back
Charlie Thomas ran in the 9th race and finished fourth as well. He was claimed back by the Emerald Racing Club for $15,000. Chart is here.
Welcome back to the barn Charlie! He will be back in his previous stall next to Tribal Waters.
