Yes, after starting on top and then settling back to fourth, Hear the Footsteps slipped and slid on the boggy turf for a mile and a sixteenth. The leaders did hear the footsteps coming around the stretch turn but one of the leaders pulled away and a fast closer, closed fast to finish second. Footsie passed the tiring leader, Wishful Tomcat, to finish third but could not get closer to the two in front of him.
Ahvee's Destiny is settling in to her new home in Schuylerville, NY. We look forward to seeing her sometime in November.
Awakino Cat is still at the Mid-Atlantic Clinic. He had several complications, including Pneumonia and Laminitis but seems to be recovering well from all his maladies. If he continues to look good after the weekend, he will go to a layup farm near the clinic before eventually being shipped to Florida for a period of recuperation over the winter.
Have a nice weekend!
