Barbaro Updates: 459
updates are now here.
Update 2856: And again: Live racing canceled at Beulah Park for Wednesday.
Update 2855: Zia Park in New Mexico, which I can honestly say I had not heard of until Pat Valenzuela was there on his latest comeback, is also home of Pepper's Pride who is chasing the modern day record of an undefeated career. She has won all thirteen of her starts at this point: Top Zia Park Horses Announced.
Update 2854: A bit of a grotty morning this morning at Sam Houston Race Park. We had eight sets, six before the break and two after the break. It was a muggy start with threatening clouds, then it downpoured later on. We took five sets to the gate and all to stand. All my horses went nicely and without incident. Not so for everybody. Jockey Paul Nolan took a spill this morning and is a little body sore. No real damage though, i think his horse whipped around a little quickly. One of our riders came off coming onto the track. Unfortunately for him it had started raining pretty hard and he got pretty muddy through the process. Again, he does not seem any worse for the experience. Nice to get back and have a hot shower!
Update 2853: Ohio is forming a group to help push the business interests of the horsemen in the State: Ohio Forms KEEP-Like Coalition. Kentucky has a similar organization, KEEP, which recently raised significant money through a stallion season auction: KEEP Raises Nearly $4 Million.
Please keep calling and writing.
