Well our trainer Gary Scherer and all of our horses will arrive at Canterbury Park this weekend. A few, like BJ’s Angel are already here.
Our two year olds, after being prepped down south this year in Louisiana at Cross Creek Farm, have been in Chicago at Hawthorne for a while now. They are track tested and have been running down the lane under Gary’s watchful eye. We haven’t seen our two year olds in almost 6 months and Gary says we’re going to like what we see when we see them this year. Victory Ice, privately purchased from breeders Rick and Joyce Osborne, out of Halfkarat by Brave Victory, is a particularly athletic 2 year old filly according to Gary.
While I really look forward to seeing the best Derby field in many years this Saturday, I am even more excited to wander around the Canterbury backside and see our 7 horse stable next week. Should be a great year and I hope to see many of you at the track.
