Entry 20 / Monday, April 20, 2009

The Kentucky Oaks is 13 days away.  We are all set with Justwhistledixie.  After looking at the video of Dixie working along side Fitz Just Right on Friday at Keeneland- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nhhuMw0J1RI we decided "we gotta run Fitzy in the Oaks". 

So, there it is – we are set to run two nice, nice fillies in the most famous filly race in the world.  We think both have a shot to get the job done.  Today we found out Stardom Bound and Just Jenda will both miss the Oaks.  Rachel Alexandra will be a strong favorite on the first Friday of May at Churchill Downs.

I leave on Sunday to go back to California for a charity golf tourney in Palm Desert.  My golf game is improving but it's still not as good as our COO, Josh Cooper's game.  He plays more than I do and has better clubs…

We are twittering for both Dixie and Fitzy.  Check out their pages on Twitter…. twitter.com/dixieintheoaks and twitter.com/fitzjustrightwp  

We can't forget about Macho Again.  He is set for the Alysheba on Oaks Day.  So glad we passed on the Charlestown Classic which was run on the 18th.  Speed favoring track won by a hometown horse.  Just did not fit our colt's running style.  We'll be tough to beat next week.

The entire world focuses on Churchill Downs on May 1st and 2nd.  Let's hope we are in play in a few spots.

Until next week.
