Barbaro Updates: 630
updates are now here.
Update 3740: A couple of hours spent at the races this afternoon. I hung out with Brian, a jocks agent. We had a couple of runners, one winner. A horse we had claimed a couple of weeks ago. Won and claimed back by the original trainer.
A friday update from Penny at timwoolleyracing.com:
Loads of workers on this Friday morning. Who's Happy and Vicar's Tune breezed together. Tim has resorted to Robbie riding Who's Happy to give his back a bit of a break. She may be traveling to Presque Isle soon to run. Saar Treaty and Rose Campbell worked 5/8ths this morning with Jesus Bracho riding Rose Campbell. Both fillies breezed well and both should with some luck be running in the next week. Powdered Donut may be running on Monday at Philadelphia Park and both Vicar's Tune and Rajasthan should be running at Colonial Downs.
Sounds as though Tim is going to be very busy. Triumphant is training well and is quite the personality. He lets everyone know he is there when they come in the barn, just in case they might go right by him without noticing how gorgeous he is.
Sweet Ginger Brown worked yesterday with King Congaree. They worked a good half mile and continue to march towards the races. Ginger has gotten tall now and doesn't look like a baby anymore.
Our Hearthrob is now back in training and jogging around the track. She loves the action and I'm sure is glad to be out of the barn. Our Diva went home yesterday for a well deserved break. Anyway, as I said lots of action today and it sounds like there will be quite a lot of action for the next week. Hopefully all will go well and horses will be happy.
Update 3739: A great morning for ducks at Woodbine. They could have swum across the track! Anyway, despite the weather, it was actually a good morning's work. We had eight sets, four before the break and then four going to the gate, which does not open until 8:30 am. All my horses went nicely, despite the best efforts of the construction people and the cement saw, or whatever ridiculous piece of equipment they had running right by the gate. Stupid really!
The morning got better when our jock's agent stopped by. Money! Very cool. When someone gives you some money you don't expect it makes for a great day! Cheers Danny!
