Sunday with the Chief

Happy Memorial Day to All Our Partners and Friends,

A few of our partners shared something special early Sunday morning. As we all
were leaning against the rail watching the morning workouts, Hall of Fame
Trainer "The Chief" Allen Jerkens seemed to magically appear in the middle of
us. Not a finer gentleman in the game, The Chief shared his views with us in a
ten minute conversation that I don't think anyone wanted to end. When told our
trainer is Bruce Brown he commented "can't go wrong there". Shortly after we
were all treated again when jockey Dave Cohen showed up and spent time with us
sharing his thoughts on Bishop of Nola's third place finish this past Friday.
We were able to see Metrology exercise and Bruce Brown commented how time away
from the track can make the world of difference in a race horse. This brings us
to Rigby, a quality race horse that needs a mental health adjustment. Rigby
will continue to train, but is going to the horse resort to escape the rigors of
a race track. The reports have started to be emailed to the partners in our New
Spring/Summer Claiming Partnership. Rarely does someone slip through the
cracks, but if anyone involved has not received the report please let me know.
Thank you all for your continued support, Joe W.
