We finally get see Diamonds Dena in action. She runs in the 6th race on Friday, August 12, post time about 9 p.m.
It’s pretty much the same condition Dena won at last month–a $15,000 claiming race for older fillies and mares at 1 1/16 mile.
We’re in post-position No. 3 with Erick Lopez the jockey. (The photo above is Dena and Erick winning at Emerald Downs on July 8.)
I’ll send out the morning line, etc., on Wednesday.
Sharon said that Archie Graham came out of Friday’s race fine and we’ll have to wait and see what’s next for him.
Great to see so many of you at El Dorado Farms on Sunday. I counted between 45 and 50 people which is pretty darned good considering the cloudy weather, Seafair weekend and many other options. A million thank yous to Ron and Nina Hagen and their tremendous staff out at El Dorado. Nina is especially amazing, it’s easy to see why so many winners are bred on their farm!
I took some photos but I can’t get them to upload. I’ll keep trying.
