Humming Beethoven was supposed to run on 4/13 in a MSW race at Santa Anita going 6 1/2 furlongs on the downhill turf. The race did not fill. They wrote it back for 4/19, it did not go. They wrote it back for 4/20 it did not go. Now it has been written back on 4/25, we can only hope. Our girl has been training lights out and is jumping out of her skin and she has to sit in the barn. Very frustrating and hard to understand, we have a horse population of 2,500 horses or so and a race that normally over fills doesn't go??? Nothing to Hide's race didn't fill for the 19th and now we enter on Wednesday for the 20th. Problem is now she has to face older horses for a smaller purse. She is also ready to fire after her last work, a 48.3 half mile with the rider sitting motionless. Top of the World's race did go and he will try to get his second win tomorrow at Turf Paradise. It's the 2nd race on the card and will go off at 1:29. Good luck Top of the World!
In other racing news...True Visionary is back in training and couldn't be doing any better. After jockey Tyler Baze worked True Visionary he told conditioner Mike Puype "this is a serious horse", let's hope he's right! Bullwhip is settling in at Charles Town and will have his first breeze over the track shortly. I can't wait to see his speed at 4 1/2 furlongs! Red Outlaw will ship back into Peter Miller's barn next week after a brief freshening. He will be trying to stay undefeated and 4 for 4 in his next start. Salute to Summer and Island Freedom are enjoying their time at Magali farm with our 2 year old filly, Kiss at Midnight. Finally, Chilled Mousse has shipped into the Peter Miller barn at San Luis Rey and has already had a couple of breezes over the track. Peter really likes the way he moves and says he looks like a 2 turn horse.
