|Just so beautiful.|
I felt my position failing me, as well as her. Finally, we would have a few good jumps and then I would call it a day. And really guys, I don't know crap about jumping. So, I decided to try a placing pole in front of the jump. Again, she would be rushing the jump and her legs going everywhere. I would notice after the jump that I stared at it the whole time and would hold my breath and I am sure that didn't help her any.
|Day one of placing pole.|
|Ready to rock and roll.|
|And ended with a great vertical.|

|Blaker. The paddock boy extraordinaire.|
Yes. That's right. The race meet here at Les Bois Park has STARTED. And boy, did it start off with a bang! We (and when I am referring to we, I mean redheadlins and the Burns Racing Stable) had two in the first race, one in the second, and one in the fifth. Plus helping with four other horses for trainers in need. We mapped out everything and hit the road running.
|Yuma. Pure class.|
|Go Yuma go!|
|Rocky Mountain "Paint Chip".|
I missed Rocky go (he got second!), as I hurried back with Blake to cool out Baby, and get the Grey Mamoose (Tizannette) ready for her race. Sprinklerbandit and I washed and readied her, and she behaved herself beautifuly. Somewhere in there, I hurried back to the stands to watch the derby, and had a winner for the second year in a row. But seriously, how could you not go with California Chrome?
|Look at that white tail!|
