McDove Race On Saturday

Good news, Emerald Racing Club.

McDove runs in the fifth race Saturday at Emerald Downs. Post time is 4:07 p.m.

The race is for fillies and mares 3-year-olds and up which have never won two races (not including maiden races). The claiming price is $15,000, the distance six furlongs (three quarters of a mile).

I will handicap the race in more detail Friday, but there are three dedicated front-runners in the seven-horse field–Annisquam, Kiss My Lulu and Justitia–so it looks like McDove can take aim at an honest pace. I also like that she drew outside–post-position six–which usually helps in a one-turn race.

McDove and Distinguishable both galloped one mile Wednesday.

I will be out 8 a.m. Thursday to watch the horses train. Everyone is welcome, of course, to come out and watch training. Let’s hope for some better weather!

  1. Fantastic! Looking forward to Saturday as well as, a week day in future that I’ll be free to come out to watch training. Thanks for your status update posts Vince.

  2. It looks like Annisquann is big time competition for McDove here, don’t think McDove will be the favorite in this race. I can’t wait to see how she does.

  3. Best of luck to McDove and the entire ERC gang Saturday. Again I’m on grandkid duty in Wenatchee. But I’ll be with you in spirit.

      • I hadbthe most fun usin the racing for to teach my grand daughter how to read with the horses names. Also comparing Byer numbers to which is bigger.
        Horse racing is not only fun but educational :-p
