updates are now here.
Update 4565: For me the most impressive performance of last weekend was that of Rachel Alexandra. The following is a Q and A with her trainer: Q & A With Rachel Alexandra Trainer Hal Wiggins.
Update 4564: Seven sets for me this morning at Oaklawn Park. Five before the break and two after the break. Three went to the gate for a little gate schooling. All did well, and all galloped nicely. Much chillier here this morning, but bright sunshine for sure.
We have a third entry in our YouTube Horse Slaughter Contest. Technical difficulties at my end and I have not seen it yet, but by all accounts it's another terrific entry: Another Chance: Saved from Horse Slaughter. Here is one of the comments posted:
I LOVE IT!! Excellent video, that shows one venue for horses that could have ended up being slaughtered - instead they were given a chance of a new life, and help serve the community. You can tell the police officers in this video really love their new partners - very cool commentary from the officers. Hope they can get the funds needed for their new barn & arena and to be able to give new homes and jobs to more recued horses!!
Update 4563: Gulfstream Park hosts an allowance race today (race 8) that may produce a couple of horses that will be considered for the Triple Crown: Future Is Now for Gulf Allowance Runners.
We now have our second entry in our $1,000 YouTube Horse Slaughter Contest. It is beautiful, simple and poignant. A video that anyone can watch, and should watch.
Enjoy: Please Stop Horse Slaughter.
There are several weeks to go for entries to be produced, so please consider entering the contest and helping to spread the message. And helping a rescue organization!
And please keep calling.
