Highland Cat Wins!

- And no, this one is NOT a misprint. I owe Richie at Castle Village breakfast at Saratoga. (At least he didn't take me up on my offer to eat the program if he won!)

More when I get to see the replay (no, I did not give up a day's pay to go).

[UPDATE - He was not claimed, and paid $11.60 as the co-second choice. The winner's share of the purse is $6,000, as low as you can go NY. That should hold off another cash call for a couple of months or so..]

Yes, indeed. That's 3 wins for Mr. Turner in 3 racing days at the Big A. I don't think he had 3 wins in the previous 6 months. I sure hope things are turning around for this truly gentle man and nice guy.

Hey way to go. I knew you working the old reverse jinx on your horse.

You'll be happy to know I touted everyone who would listen on him at the 38th & Broadway OTB. Fortunately none of the Jamaican's believed me. Guy in a suit and tie.

you poo poo'd the bottom level maiden claiming race, but you've got to admit, a W feels pretty damn good, regardless of the company. I only hope to follow in your footsteps, even if at half the price.

Thanks everyone, I appreciate it. Yes Brad, I'll never poo poo again.
