This is such a nice series they are doing on horse and rider. And Herringswell Stables is sharing them on Facebook, where I see them. Some old favorites there.

She was the only 3yo in the field, so I think she acquitted herself well. She did get a weight break, though, but I still think she showed promise. She didn't give up.

Desert Duchess had a really nice allowance win in race #7 at Kentucky Downs today. Her record is now 13-4-3-2. I am amazed at the purse of this race $130,000! I have noticed the purses at this track are very generous.

Timeline entered into this Saturday's G1 PA Derby. Post position 1. Up against West Coast! :shock: Hoping it will be Timeline's turn this time. He's had a little break since the Haskell. He's been training well at Belmont Park. 3 bullets the past month.

OMG! Hardest Core is back! I was just thinking about him recently and wondered what had become of him. He hasn't raced in over a year. He is entered at Woodbine in race # 6 this Saturday. It's an AOC at 1 1/16 miles on the turf.

DRF pre race analysis for tomorrow's PA Derby. Both in the video picking Timeline over West Coast...though they agree West Coast is the horse to beat...giving Timeline another shot despite 5th place in the Haskell, allowing for his slow start, getting bumped, and being somewhat rank early. Timeline has run consistently better in previous races than he ran in the Haskell, so I'm hoping that was an anomaly and he will hold his own in this race. Hoping it is his turn to win a G1 3yo race.
