updates are now here.
Update 2774: The Green Monkey was fourth in his third race, and first effort on the turf this afternoon.
Update 2773: As a news "junky" I am getting a little tired of the political races we are witnessing, that being said I was very pleasantly surprised to see this on John Edward's blog: Slaughter of an American Icon.
Update 2772: Another warm morning at Sam Houston Downs, I think there is rain in the forecast but it held off during training hours. We had nine sets again today, six went out before the break, three after the break. The final six sets all went to the gate, just to stand the horses and back them out. Make sure they are nice and quiet in the gate (quiet and relaxed horses break much better than nervous horses). All mine stood nicely. All in all a decent morning's work. One slight close call when someone was coming galloping right at me after his pony rider cut him loose, but we were missed!
Update 2771: European Horse of the Year Dylan Thomas is now out of the Japan Cup, he may still run in Hong Kong before his retirement: Dylan Thomas Out of Japan Cup.
The most expensive horse to sell at an auction, The Green Monkey, is making his third start this afternoon and first start on the turf: The Green Monkey Tries Turf.
