BLAKE B - RESULT 5/20 CHURCHILL DOWNS
Blake B, pictured above at Red Earth at the end of 2020, didn't do a lot of running in his race on Thursday. We were fearful he wouldn't like the rail and the dirt in his face early, and were proved right. After getting pinched back and eating dirt at about the quarter pole, he didn't do much running and came in 7th I believe. We wanted to run him longer, and have a shot without drawing the rail, so we will aim for that next time. The advantage of the poor performance is we can be really aggressive with him in his next start. Result chart HERE
ENTRIES OVER THE NEXT WEEK
Newscaster is entered at Lone Star on Sunday, the 23rd in race 9. It's an Allowance Race (1x) and he is 6-1 on the morning line. Bad luck - drew the rail again. Entries HERE
Mesta Park is entered at Will Rogers on Monday the 24th in race 7. It's a State Bred Allowance Race (1X) and he has been installed the 5-2 favorite. Mesta is pictured below in his stall this week, thanks to our partner Chris for the photo. Entries HERE
Tiz Life is entered at Churchill Downs on Thursday the 27th in race 5. We had also entered him for Sunday, but it was two turns for the first time and we drew outside, so opted for the one turn mile on the following Thursday. It's also an easier race, carrying a $75,000 price tag, which while we hope to not see him go for, is a risk worth taking. Entries HERE
Thanks and have a great week!
