Mrs. Murphy had another workout this morning…
Date: May 30, 2009
Track: PINNACLE RACE COURSE
Distance: Five Furlongs
Time: 1.06:00 Breezing
Track Condition: Fast
This workout was a step up in terms of distance and not finishing behind everyone else – both of which I consider to be positive signs.
Opening day at Pinnacle Race Course is next Friday, which means it is time to start looking through the condition book for spots for her second start, and her first in Detroit. My guess is she will probably be entered in restricted maiden claiming events until she either breaks her maiden or proves she can hang in Maiden Special Weight company.
With that in mind, here are some of the maiden claiming races for fillies coming up in the near future. If she’s ready to go, I figure we’ll see her in one of these spots.
Day 2: June 6 - Purse: $5,800 Fillies & Mares 3yo & up, Six Furlongs, Claiming Price: $6,250
* This is a sub race, so it might not see the light of day.
Day 3: June 7 – Purse: $6,000 F&M 3&up, 5f, Tag: $12,500
* Another sub race
Day 7: June 14 – Purse: $5,800 F&M, 3&up, 5f, Tag: $6,250
* Yet another sub race. One of these has to make the live card, right?
Day 8: June 16 – Purse: $5,800 F&M, 3&up, one mile, Tag: $6,250
* Surprise, surprise. Another sub race. Doubt she’d get put in at a mile anyway.
Day 10: June 20 – Purse: $6,600 F&M, 3&up, 5.5f, Tag: $12,500
Day 11: June 21 – Purse: $5,800 F&M, 3&up, 6f, Tag: $6,250
* A sub race
Day 13: June 26 – Purse: $8,100 (includes $2,000 supplement) MI-bred F&M, 3&up, 5.5f, Tag: $8,000
* A sub race, but don’t be shocked to see this one make the card.
That’s about it for the first condition book. Hopefully some of these races make it on the card and Mrs. Murphy can get off the snide quickly in case the racing dates dry up. Keep it here for the latest.
