The Canterbury racing season wraps up Saturday and we have a couple of our Minnesota Bred fillys running. PJ's Angel (Earner of $68,800, 3 wins, 4th in the Minnesota Oaks and winner just 2 weeks ago) and Blazing Angel (Earner of $75,976, Stakes Winner of the Minnesota Oaks), both run Saturday and will both be for sale immediately thereafter. In addition, Victory Ice, another filly who has won twice this year at Canterbury and earner of $38,480, is available.
All three of these horses can win races next year at Canterbury, so they would be a nice part of any Minnesota racing stable. They also have the personality, behavior, intelligence and athletic ability to do just about anything their new owners would ask.
As I have said here before, we are turning 65 and relocating our racing and breeding operations to other areas, thus reducing our footprint here in Minnesota. Subsequently, these sound Minnesota horses are available as racers for the next racing season, or as broodmares or even as solid prospects in other disciplines.
Feel free to contact Gary Scherer, our trainer at Canterbury, while they are still at the track, or even watch PJ and Blazing race Saturday if you're interested. After this weekend they will be up at the Osborne Farm in Cambridge and you can contact Joyce Osborne 763-689-3661 about them up there.
