HC Update

- Bill Turner will eschew the sensible advice given by a recent commenter, and run Highland Cat in a maiden special. “Bill feels confident that HC can run against the big boys after seeing him race last time out on the grass, coming in second.” No word as of yet on what kind of distance he’ll be looking for.

Christening had her second workout since she ‘tied up’ last month, and, like the first one, it was pretty leisurely; a half in 51.20 (33/41) down at Delaware. Not likely she’s going to get sold off of works like that.

Well, with a step in class, he'll at least offer longer odds...

I am glad you think my comment was sensible, and I beleive it is the right way for an owner to approach this type of situation. However, when a good trainer. as Turner certainly is, says he is confident in the horse you must listen.

Guess my point is the owners should not get all excited after one good race, fall in love with the horse, and force the trainer to do something he is not comfortable with. If it is the trainers decision go for it.

We will all be rooting for you at 15-1.
