10 year old/G Swiss Ski, in his 79th start, came in 2nd losing by a nose in the 6th at Turf Paradise today. He's been in the money in 50 of those starts. He was the post time favorite, and he looked like a winner! In for a $3,000 tag, he wasn't claimed.

Now, here is a genuine Iron Horse. 13yo Fortunate Trail will make his 145th (!) start at Camarero this Friday (2/7/14).
He started 21 times in 2013 alone, and has raced all up and down the eastern seaboard and in the midwest. No rust on this
young man. 144 - 27-28-17, $356,913.

Good Luck, Fortunate Trail!

10yo Big Swiss, was eased and vanned off after crossing the finish line in Race 3 at Los Alamitos this past
Sunday (2/9/14). Would anyone happen to know of his status? Hoping for a good outcome here- he's an old trouper...

Swiss Ski finished 2nd for the third time in 2014 at Turf Paradise yesterday. This guy continues to be extremely competative as
he races into antiquity - and fun to follow. His connections just love him...

10K starter stakes at TP. Bears watching...


Still entire, yes?

Thanks for the report on Swiss Ski, War Biscuit.

Catching up on Sun City, she came in 5th of 8. Led until the end, yielded in the stretch...still trying.

Also Be Bullish won the Hollie Hughes S. at Aqueduct (Jacobson trains) on Feb 17, and looked good doing it.

Porfido is still a stallion according to Equibase, Starine! He had a 3F in 39.20 workout at Turf Paradise on Feb 15.

11yo mare, and stakes winner,Rare Crystal, won for the 17th time on opening day at Fonner Park on Friday, and did it
in fine fashion. In the past few seasons her connections have only run her 3 or 4 times a year, but she remains quite
competitive and has found a home at Fonner. Good to see old timers still having fun...
