He kicked away from a nice field and won with his ears pricked. It's like he said, "You want to see a turn-of-foot in this mile race? Let a sprinter show you how it's done." :P :lol:

Jughead news: on Friday night 16yo Prime Time Bliss became the oldest Standardbred in the modern era to win a parimutuel race, and one of only 7 Standardbreds (counting fair races and amateur events) to win at age 16. While the mandatory retirement age in most of the US/Canada is 14, Western Canada allows harness horses to race at 15, and Prime Time Bliss's owners successfully petitioned the racing commission to allow the stallion (yes, stallion!) race through the end of the Fraser Downs meet. He'll retire with a record of 343-61-46-33 and will begin his stud career in Wisconsin.

FYI because you follow this horse, WarBiscuit. He's been on the S.O.S.‏@NotCloudyAllDay watch list for a long time. If he races this weekend, it will be 8 days after his last race (there also are three 10 yo's in the race). Alexis has a trainer at the ready to claim him, and it looks like After The Homestretch AZ has agreed to take him to retrain and rehome. Fingers crossed.

I've met Alexis a few times and she seemed reasonable about things like this. I've known her to be very diligent about retiring/retraining/rehoming horses at the proper time when she was married to an active trainer at Golden Gates.

Retire Evening Concerto https://www.youcaring.com/eveningconcerto-1130344 … via @youcaring
Evening Concerto is an 11 year old war horse currently running at Turf Paradise. He has over 120 starts and is running again this weekend for a 3,000 tag. I would like to raise 3500 so that the extra money can go to After The Homestretch Arizona (plus a bit to the trainer that will have him in barn until he is moved) NONE of the monies raised benefits me in any way shape or form. This is solely to retire this horse.
