Update 3011: Santa Anita canceled again today: S.A. Cancels; Hopeful for Millions.
Update 3010: My HRTV interview is sunday, not saturday. An update from Penny at timwoolleyracing.com:
Today is frigid Friday. All horses are going well and getting ready for another work day tomorrow. They are all finding partners that match up to ability and fitness level. Powdered Donut and Rosie, Rocky and Paris, Kitty and Molly all workout together. Robbie and Tim weigh much the same (I can not disclose how much or Tim would kill me) and are evenly matched when breezing horses together. Gator Nation is feeling good after having a little break. Perhaps he is feeling a little too good because he dropped Robbie. Both horse and rider made out fine and everyone returned to the barn safely.
Update 3009: Another mucky morning this morning at Sam Houston Race Park. It rained on and off all morning and the track was already a mess from the persistant rain we have endured for the last few days. Actually everything is a mess. We had nine sets, six before the break and three after the break. All mine went nicely for the most part. One was a little kean, and he is probably the biggest horse at the track, and you have to give him his head when galloping or he will simply drag you over his head. Galloping him in the rain can be tricky. We did survive.
As I was cleaning tack Becky Witzman of HRTV called, I am going to do a phone interview tomorrow, about 9:30 am west coast time. When she learned where I was she was more kean for me to pet Golden Hare for her than worry about what we would talk about tomorrow.
Update 3008: War Pass tops the 2007 Experimental Free Handicap at 127 pounds, seven pounds ahead of Pyro, Dixie Chatter and Into Mischief. Indian Blessing leads the filly division at 123 pounds: War Pass Tops Experimental.
Diabolical was fourth in his Dubai debut behind the typically impressive Asiatic Boy: Asiatic Boy Romps in Al Shindagha.
