International Guy's First race

video


Tampabaydowns.com and click on racing then race replays then tenth race today. You will see the race. The distance was 6and a half furlongs and guy ran competitively for about five furlongs and tired. He showed he breaks well and has some speed.
We will look for a shorter race and he will be fitter for that race. We build off this... We will be looking for another race asap to build his fitness! He doesn't appear to have any soundness issues!

Guy and Tiny to the gate/ January 5, 2011

video
International guy is getting his gate card. He had to break in company with the bell in order to be approved to run. Must go in. They need to break and breeze. He must come back and stand in gates and then he is ready to start his racing career!!

International Guy goes to the gate/ January 2, 2011

video

After being "flopped" out a few times we are going to have guy break with the bell. He is a little fractious going in but I asked the crew to just touch from behind so he will learn to go in. Guy breaks well and straight- the starter says to bring him back with company - if he breaks straight in company then we can look for a race!
