Katy's Office Girl runs at Belmont on Sunday, May 1st, race 8, 1 1/16 miles on the grass from post position #8 with Ramon Dominguez aboard. It's a $25,000 claiming race, so we could lose her but Ramon has done well riding her. Let's hope for a victory. For those who like different colors, Katy is a Gray filly. GO KATY!
Ahvee's Destiny will run for the first time at the Atlantic City Race Course on Tuesday May 3rd at 6PM. She is entered in the Tony Gatto Dream Big Stakes at 5 furlongs on the grass. The first time I heard the name of the race, I thought it was Tony Soprano, rather than Gatto. Is there a difference? [PC ALERT] Of course there is!
The whole course in Atlantic City is open for only 6 days. All the races are on the grass. This race is the feature on the final day of racing with a purse of $50K. As with all of Ahvee's races these days, there is lots of competition. She runs from the one-hole. If Joe Bravo gets her out quickly, it may be OK. If he doesn't, she may get stuck behind too many horses. I guess we won't know until they come flying out of the gate. GO AHVEE!
It's Truly Ahvee has a serious tendon tear. It seems like most feel it is unlikely that a horse will make it back to the races when he has been injured very quickly after healing from a prior tear in a different area of the same tendon. We will probably have one more conversation with our friend, Vet David Levine, before making a final decision.
Have a wonderful weekend!
