Pixie heads south to Pau

Pixie’s Blue finally managed to make it into a race – in Pau, of all places. She left at 5 this morning for what should be a 10-hour or so trip, and will race tomorrow at 12:30 in a 1,500-meter handicap on the fibersand down there. I won’t be able to make it, so Valerie is handling the work; we were lucky to get Jean-Baptiste Hamel to ride. It’s a long trip, but it was impossible to get her into a race in Deauville, so since we got in, we had to take the chance. Pixie has done very little lately, between the frozen weather and the uncertainty of whether she would find a race somewhere. Suffice to say she will run very, very fresh down there, and I expect her to either set the pace or be very close to it. I hope Hamel fastens his seatbelt…
