The proud papa will be...

FREUD (not Johnna)!

He's been a top NY sire for several years. He's not too expensive and he's not far away… plus there are so many possibilities for names… Ahvee Freudberg, Dr. Freudberg, Freud's Destiny, Johnna Freud, etc., etc. The mating will take place ~March 1st, which should mean a foal about February 2013. Many thanks to Becky Thomas, Alan Porter and Linda Rice.

Cricky'sGoldenEyes had his first breeze at Belmont today (Saturday). Linda was very pleased with his "in hand" workout. Hopefully, he'll be ready to race very soon.

We plan on being in Saratoga Springs for New year's weekend and will visit Ahvee's Destiny. She's been turned out in a large corral with another mare as a new friend.

Last week, we almost claimed a harness horse but lost the "shake" (lottery) when someone else claimed him as well.

Today (Saturday), Calgary Enforcer, one of the ONY VI horses won a $7500 claimer with a $20,000 at Aqueduct. They have not been sending me e-mails but whether we are part of it or not, we wish good things for the ONY horses. Linda Rice followed up 3 winners on Friday with Frazil, her own horse, taking the Gravesend Handicap Saturday at Aqueduct. Yay!

Here's wishing everyone a Happy Holiday and a Happy and Healthy New Year!

All the best,
