It was a hectic weekend, folks!
We acquired a second horse–Diamonds Dena–while our existing horse–Archie Graham– finished fourth. Again.
Sunday’s race was frustrating. All things considered, Archie Graham wound up getting a decent trip from the 10-hole, and it was exciting to watch Archie Graham and Leslie Mawing rally into contention on the last turn. In fact, I really thought we had a good chance to get the money, but it just wasn’t to be. The three horses in front of us into the lane–Life Is a Joy, Private Boss and Hoody–battled all the way to the wire with Life Is a Joy prevailing in a 42-to-1 upset.
So for the second straight race Archie Graham finished fourth out of 10, not bad in the final analysis. But if there’s one thing I know about Emerald Racing Club, it’s that you folks are accustomed to winning!
I’ll let the dust settle and get an Archie Graham report from Larry and Sharon Ross and pass it along.
Diamonds Dena came out of her win Friday in good order and I’ll see what their thoughts are on a potential race for her too.
Also, Nina Hagen of El Dorado Farms and myself are trying to work out a date for our visit to the farm.
Have a great week everyone!
