Blame has been under the care of Glenn Brookfield at Keeneland since he was two. “He thinks he owns the place,” said Brookfield, assistant trainer to Al Stall, Jr. “He stands there and begs for mints. He is quite the schmoozer.”

With exercise rider Casey Chavez up, Blame worked five furlongs on Sunday, Sept. 5 at Keeneland, in a sharp 1:00 1/5. He looked good on the track and his connections seemed pleased.

Back at his barn Blame received mints while walking the shedrow and after his bath. Blame’s hotwalker talked to him and rubbed on the colt’s nose as he posed for photos after his bath. Blame seemed to love the attention, even during his bath.
