All set to go

Tyke is all set for tomorrow at Longchamp, and if it were a beauty contest, we’d be a front-runner. He looks fantastic, and he seems to be feeling pretty good, too, so now we have to see if he can run as well as he looks. He’s been singing and bucking and wanting to beat up other horses all week, so it’s good we’ve got a race. We’ve got 20 starters and we’re breaking from the No. 5 hole, which is a good spot. Raphael Marchelli will ride; he did good work for us last year with Skid Solo. To say the race is wide open is an understatement: The runners range in age from 4 to 10, with earnings ranging from nothing to 500,000 euros. One horse has run 114 times and another just once. It’s a handicappers nightmare. At the very least, it will be interesting. The promised rain has not appeared, sadly, so I can only hope there’s been enough watering so the track isn’t too hard. In any case, off we go…
