    Default Keeneland, 6th Race Friday, My 1st Start as Trainer

    So very, very excited. Race didn't come up as tough as it could and the filly has been training like the champ that I think she is this week. This filly came to me in March to be broke, and here we are now out for the loot at Keeneland. I am so thankful to the owners, Kent and Tracy Hersman, for letting me keep this filly to run her and hopefully it will be a good experience for all. Just couldn't help but mention this

    Best of luck and success! Kudos on landing Rosie to put in the ride too no less

    We all can watch the race on-line, live and free

    Missed it?

    Yep - its all that accessible and easy.

    The whole weekend is typical Keeneland - chock full of top horses and big fields with tons of folks expected. In all, nine graded races – seven of them Win and You’re In races – will be run during the opening three-day FallStars Weekend.

    One interesting race (of many) to keep an eye on on Friday is Race 9 G1 $400,000 Darley Alcibiades - breaking from PP 3: a $1,400 purchase named Rose to Gold. Per the DRF: her two career races – both of them ungraded stakes at Calder – have resulted in run-off victories of 13 and 13 1/2 lengths.

    Also on Friday ... "Hey, good buddy, remember that party we threw you, the gold watch you got, the talk of beautiful fillies and all the grass you want to eat back in Aiken, plus the 'enjoy retirement' cards folks sent to you? We'll let's just say we were tad premature."

    Like an Onion headline: Phoenix marks Aikenite's first race since retirement

    Pulled out of retirement and returning in Friday’s Grade 3, $175,000 Phoenix on opening day at Keeneland, he seems likely to receive more interest, albeit this time from the wagering public. He's compiled a record of 2 wins and 2 seconds from 5 starts over Keeneland’s synthetic Polytrack surface.

    Good luck! Since I can't bet (no close tracks for simulcasting and no on-line/phone wagering here) I'll just send good vibes!

    I must say few could boast that their maiden as a trainer would be in the same race against the likes of Todd Pletcher, Wayne Catalano, Kenny McPeek, D. Wayne Lukas, Eddie Kenneally, Wesley Ward .... oh and Steve Asmussen.

    I know the odds -- doesn't help me know if I should bet but I think I will!

    Thank.you all. Glimmer, I've been training for a bit now but bided my time choosing tge right horse to be my maiden starter. I know she'll try her heart out and that's all I can ask for. Bacchus, I'm suggesting $5-$10 across (win/place/show) to everyone. Lukas is 20-1to too. We've got as good a chance as any.

    Lots of luck! I remember my first starter, too! I think he was 3rd, but he went on to do very well in some state bred races early on when the slots just started in Delaware, then he got claimed -- but he was a cool little horse. Best of luck! (Hopefully she'll win!)

    Yay! I'll set me DVR. Hope she does well, but I'll be happy if she's anywhere ahead of assmussen's horse
