Barbaro Updates: 559
updates are now here.
Update 3317: Power back.
Update 3316: It is "No Power Friday Day" in our environmentally friendly housing complex. Spent the afternoon in the warm HBPA office on the backside of Woodbine. Then went over to the front side to watch a couple of races.
Update 3315: As predicted nothing went out to train today. The horses that shipped in yesterday all walked. I went in and helped out a little bit. We also received two more shipments of horses who will take a couple of days also to settle in. On top of everything else the power went out in our apartment. We all know how much we rely on power, only when the power goes out. More later - Hopefully!
Update 3314: Darren (assistant trainer and my boss) arrived yesterday afternoon around feed time. I met him at the barn and for the first time at Steve's I helped to feed. Our horses are well fed for sure. Things will start to become a normal routine around here in the next day or two, although this morning I am anticipating just walking everything as the new horses just shipped in yesterday and the one filly we have had here worked yesterday.
We do have three runners in the Arkansas Derby this weekend, lets hope Z Fortune can get back on track: Z Fortune Seeks Redemption in Arkansas.
Please keep calling and writing.
