Day 110

The 2 year olds are doing really well at CDT. The little Theatrical colt at Keeneland is a pain in the ass though. He will soon go to the farm for a little breather since he is his sires son and wont be ready till the fall at the earliest. While we haven't officially worked anyone, they are very well mannered, gallop well, have done some gate work and are a nice group overall. Cant wait to see the ones that have been in Ocala.

Day 109

Spent the morning at CDT and the afternoon at BEC. The weather is really nice and Keeneland had a huge crowd. Trying to get the landscaping and grass ready at BEC for the Grand Opening next week. Not my speciality but it needs to get done.

Day 108

Looks like I wont have anything else running at Keeneland as my horse didn't get in and there are no other races for her here. There is a race on Oaks day that she may fit well into. Nothing has gone right at Keeneland for us this year. At least the meet is short!

Day 107

Well at least what ails yesterdays runner can be cured. One of the most disheartening things is a promising horse that comes up with an injury that probably can't be fixed. There are so many things that can go wrong with a horse and so few that can go right. 

The cool and rainy weather continues though the training over the polytrack at Keeneland is hardly affected. Synthetics are nice in rainy weather, that's for sure.
