We sucked today. I think I entered some too soon since a lot had a month + break. Oh well. I think we're going to spend the rest of the month training and start racing again in Jan.

Three maiden fillies tried to figure out the racing game... and failed :P

Fifths:
Rodarte (2yo, I'm No Fool) in a maiden - she's born in May and I bought her in October this year, so haven't had many chances to race... but she has amazing pedigree so I hope next year she'll shine.
Yay or Nay (2yo, Frankel) in a maiden - her first start ever, and she was the only one of three fillies in this race who tried to compete with the boys! I think she looks promising.

Also Rans:
Tosca (2yo, Lord Nelson) 7th in a maiden - she made nine starts this year... and this is not the best one of them ;)

By the way, I just read the news about Cozmic One being retired from racing... too bad he didn't even break his maiden. I never liked his sire... with his 8 starts and 6 wins... doesn't compare to Zenyatta's 20 starts, 19 wins and one 2nd... but Bernardini does look pretty and so is Cozmic One - so maybe he's just bred to look pretty ;) I wonder what kind of career he's going to try now!

He's going to do the Retired Racehorse Project! He went to a trainer that has won the show jumping portion the past 3 years. I'm really excited to follow his career as I'm glad they decided to geld him and not breed. I think he's going to make a beast of a jumper!

That's very cool. :) I love that project.

I wish race results stayed on the stable alerts longer - I didn't get a chance to peek at them so am having to compile this manually. Shanthi has me spoiled - I don't miss the days of doing this each and every race day!  :P

We sent out mostly 2YOs, so I'm just happy that most of them brought home a paycheck. A lot were entered in races way over their heads just to get a race in, so I expected much worse.

Wins:
Fleur Delacour (2yo, Worthy Victor) in a NW3

Places:
Tell Mama (2yo, TakeMeToHollywood) in a Maiden - her first start!
Callgirl (2yo, Count Me In) in a NW2
Gloryseeker (2yo, Magic Glory) in a Maiden

Shows:
Gentle Giant (2yo, Giant's Causeway) in an Open Allowance
One Giant Leap (2yo, V is for Victory) in an Open Allowance

Fourths:
D'Nesh (2yo, Belanso) in an Open Allowance
Lake Como (2yo, Bellagio) in a NW3
Seek Justice (2yo, Witness) in an Open Allowance

Fifths:
Massive Kitten (2yo, Robin Hood) in an Open Allowance

Also Rans:
Canaanite (4yo, Player) in the W.J. Healy Stakes (Gr. 3)
Odious (2yo, Bellagio) in an Open Allowance

You can get to any day's results via https://www.finalfurlong.org/recentresults.php?d=2021-12-16

Where you replace the date (bolded) with the raceday in question. If you want the forum version add &format=forum to the end of the URL.

Thank you, Shanthi!!

I tried to find that link every possible way hoping Chrome history would catch it and suggest one I'd looked at in the past but no luck.
I tried www.finalfurlong.org/ra (race), re (results), po (post), etc. all with no luck. I've now bookmarked the link format JUST IN CASE! Thank you!
