Well, I found out what happened to Pink Champagne in the Kentucky Oaks.

She was in Stall 8.............another horse in Stall 6......got skittish and I don't know what you call but went up and like bucked.........with the front legs going up...well, Pink decided she was gonna do it also and actually Pat Day almost got thrown off the horse.........anyway, Pink suffered a gash from that little escapade and they didn't know she was hurt till after the race........she has got it stapled now and is healing in New York. John Kimmell is her trainer and he is a doctor so I am sure she is being taken care of.

Wall Street Afleet is racing at Arlington on Friday.  He should do well.  My son does not know the exact details yet as he has been travelling......he will let me know......he is in Washington D.C. today and goes to San Franciso tomorrow for a couple days then back to Chicago so he can go to Arlington.

My son bought a new race horse last week.........I think he said the horse is from Argentina.......maybe New Zealand.......I forgot which...it is hard to keep up with him.  The name of the horse if El Rayo....................he said this horse is awesome and will make him some bucks.............actually, he was going to sell Wall Street Afleet but since Wall Street has been winning lately, he just decided to keep him and add another racehorse.

Just updating you on the dvents happening here.

Sandy

    Sandy, I watched that race and saw that trouble at the start with Pink Champagne....I immediately thought "uh-oh".  Hope she comes out of it all right...doesn't sound too serious.

    Hawthorne meet ends tomorrow and Arlington starts Fri. Couldn't find Wall Street  in today's or tomorrow's entries at Hawthorne so I'll be looking for him soon at Arlington.

    Thanks for the updates!

      I think my son said Friday is the race day for Wall Street Afleet.  He also told me it would be later in the day.........like 3 or 4 Michigan time.  He has been so busy lately and I was surprised he called on MOther's Day and I only talked a few minutes so I didn't catch it all.  He was on his cell and it was sometimes breaking up.  He told me he would call me from San Franciso mid-week and let me know the final date and time.

      I don't want to leave home right now because of my daughter otherwise my husband I would attempt to drive to my son's Friday and go to the race.  I would like to see one of his horses race live someday.

         So what is your input for Sat. Race???

         I am waiting to see what the odds are!! Went to WV last weekend and picked a few dogs. Had good luck on my favorite slot there.

          Wall Street Afleet races Saturday, Race 6, 3:36 at Arlington.  It will be on TVG Rick...........pretty good odds on him right now.

            Sandy, I saw that Wall Street ran out of the money, but if I'm not mistaken it was an optional claiming race for 28K (my memory's not so good).  I believe you said Wall Street just broke her maiden, so that was a big step up in class in a difficult field of contenders.  Optional claiming races are very difficult to handicap or win.

            But you can't win 'em all.  I haven't checked the charts yet to see the race's progress report, but I bet your son drops him down a notch or two for the win.

            I'm tracking Arlington exactas now.  It will take awhile to see any patterns, but anyone following Arlington knows the 5 post is red hot along with posts 3 through 6.  The heavy rains on Thurs. has made the middle posts the best for the last couple days.

            Thanks again for the updates on your son's horses.  I'm watching them closely.  My son and I will be going up to the beautiful Arlinton Park race track in a couple weeks, so we might be able to catch one of his horses in action.

            Keep me posted, OK?

              Rick, WallStreet Afleet had good odds, he just stunk............don't know what happened.  I never call my son after a race, I let him call me.........lol.......I learned that the hard way. 

              He told me he was thinking of selling his share; he just might do that now.

              He is so pumped out about the new horse from Argentina...."El Rayo".......like the cigarette filter name.  I bet he didn't even know that name meant anything.

              It's fun for him so I am happy that he is happy.  He is so uptight in business, he needs the outlet.  I am sure his wife thinks so too.  She actually rides but not races, just for fun.

              Take care, and I hope you and your son win some races at Arlington.

                Sandy, keep me posted on El Royo and Pink Champagne.  I appreciate the updates.  Like I said I hardly ever bet on the ponies anymore but I'm going to follow Arlington this summer, and if my son and I are going  and they're running, we'll be prepared.

                Thanks!  (and tell your son "thanks" too for the inside info...some of us may win some bucks on it.
