Stable Update

- Just Zip It (City Zip) was scheduled to go in a one mile maiden special at the Big A on Monday, but she's not entered due to what is termed as a "little sensitivity" in one of her shins. Bill Turner feels that it's nothing serious, but didn't want to take a chance. Disappointing that it's taking so long to get her back to the races after such a promising debut.

But Highland Cat is back, and so is his back, which has apparently responded extremely well to the treatment he received during his stint on the farm. That was evidenced by his half mile workout on Saturday, which went in an uncharacteristically quick 48.90 (13/67); and he was reported to not even "blowing hard" afterwards. That was just his second timed workout since returning to Belmont a couple of weeks ago, and Turner said: "He's dead fit." A one mile race on Feb 8 is a possibility for the now four-year old gelded son of Tactical Cat.

And Christening, who we last saw recuperating from surgery after fracturing a condylar bone while finishing second at Delaware last summer, has had the screws removed and Castle Village's half partner in the filly wants to bring her back to the races in June. Castle Village is in negotiations to sell our interest to the other party, as we don't wish to carry half of her training expenses over the next six months at least.
