How are we doing?

  • 9 Comments

Since we have no entries for August 1 (don't worry, Saturday promises to be a full day) and only one result for July 31, I thought it might be a good time to review how our boys are doing so far. As always, we'll look at them in alphabetical order.

Breaking News is a Lang Peak in Front of Stone Skipper

Breaking News took the lead out of the gate, followed by Doneraile's Peak and Stone Skipper (Birdstone). Dovehunter Jones was extremely rank, tried to run up on the heels of the horse in front of him and had to be pulled back. Stone Skipper ran out of gas in the stretch and faded to 7th. Meanwhile, Breaking News was tiring and Lang Heart was closing, but Breaking News was able to hold on for victory.
