sometimes I think trainer John Sherriffs deserves his own thread.
much has been written about the Z babies along with others in his shed and how he get's 'em ready to run!
patient horseman is an understatement.
but this might be a new high/low benchmark

On Monday at Del Mar there's a first timer by the name of Kindred, owned by the Moss family.
listed at 12/1 on the morning line, the question on everybody's mind......will she need one?

Just imagine if she was your horse after paying $250,000 for the CandyRide filly and the discussions about a first start that must have gone on,
here's his workout regimen going into the race, all 32 of them.....

^^^^^ All I can say is, Sigh.

BTW Flavien Prat won with three of his four mounts for Baffert, including a sharp MSW winner in Solomini, who was a second faster than St Patrick's Day.

Part of that delay may well have had to do with the Mosses splitting up and Kindred's ownership being undecided.

Another with a nice pedigree: By Curlin out of a half-sister to champion Midshipman and grade II winner Fast Cookie (herself the dam of Frosted).

Baffert had another sharp MSW winner today at Del Mar, an Exchange Rate filly named Alluring Star who I think they said sold for $850,000. She was ridden by. . . Joe Talamo.

When he dies, they may find "Nero" carved on Martin Garcia's heart!

Might need to have a tissue handy.

Lacey Gaudet

The 2017 Saratoga meet took on special importance for the Gaudet family, (from left), Linda, Gabby, Lacey and Eddie.

Take notes they said. Record or write down all the stories he tells you. When people told me that as I was growing older, I never fully understood the weight behind it.

“He’s 75, he’s forgotten more than most people in this game will ever learn,” we’d say.

None of us thought that the joke of what he’d forgotten would turn to reality of what he can’t remember.

Tonight is a bad night. They’re growing more frequent. He doesn’t remember the home he made for his family that means so much to us, he doesn’t remember who we are most nights and the concept of a fork is learned each night. As I sit here, spoon-feeding him ice cream that, just a few weeks ago was what he looked forward to each night, I am reminded of the inevitable; it will only get worse.

When we (Mom and I, and even Gabby) ventured into this year, the goal of the Saratoga meet was to expand. Gain clientele and fresh horses and if we were lucky, hit the board with a few we’d take with us from Maryland. I don't think I understood the full weight behind it.

“We have to make it work. It’s now or never and I think the time is right,” I told my mom in the months approaching the start of the meet.

Mom doesn’t need or want this. She does this for us. She pushes the papers and the bills and does the tough part but the reality behind this extraordinary sport we play and to me at least, the grunt work is the easy part.

The days that start at 3:30 a.m. and go until 8 at night, the sick horses, the help not showing up … that’s the easy part. It’s the part that Dad never handled either that is the hard part. The hoping … that a check from an owner is in the mail and the looking for a “house horse” to get it done for the home team to pay the bills.

We see it growing up in the game, the men who are so successful and women behind them that are the glue. The ones who tick off the help because they expect more and the ones who make the tough phone calls. The ones who make sure the shipping box is packed and the licenses are in order, and that the papers, and coggins are in the van drivers hands.

We’re doing what’s right for him, keeping him at home when it’s hard for us, because this is where he belongs. He has given us a name that rings proud from coast to coast and I never get tired of people asking, when they truly care, “How’s Eddie?” I always say, “Thanks for asking,” because it’s comforting to know that no one has forgotten him. But how could they?

So as I tuck him into bed tonight, as he did for me so many nights, I can’t help but think…what will our “summer at Saratoga” mean for us?

CYPRESS, Calif. – Jimmy Barnes, the longtime assistant to Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert, was being treated for a fractured pelvis on Sunday after being unseated from the stable pony earlier in the day.

“He stumbled,” Baffert said. “The pony lost his footing. He just went down. It was a freaky thing.”

It was not immediately known how long Barnes would be hospitalized.

Barnes has been an integral part of Baffert’s team for nearly two decades, often traveling around the nation – and to Dubai – with the stable’s leading horses. In 2015, he accompanied American Pharoah to Oaklawn Park for a win in the Arkansas Derby and was alongside the colt through a sweep of the Triple Crown.

Barnes, 58, has worked for Baffert since November 1998.

Broberg sends out wrong horse to win race

“It was an absolutely embarrassing mistake,” he said. “All of us are ashamed of it and are working to put protocols in place where something like this can never happen again. I’ve already reached out to the owners, and I’m going to make it right with them as well. There really isn’t much more to say . . . I want to hide from now until the end of time, or when everyone forgets.”


I want to know how the track identifier missed this.
