SILENT AUCTION ON THOROUGHBLOG!!


DANCE SMARTLY JACKET


Buy it and give LONGRUN a Christmas present



Thanks to BRUCE WALKER, formerly of Woodbine Entertainment, THOROUGHBLOG is able to auction off this gorgeous DANCE SMARTLY jacket, made for a selected few people in 1991 after the Canadian-bred filly won the Breeders' Cup Distaff and the Canadian Triple Crown.
The jacket, size large/extra large, is nylon and has NEVER BEEN WORN.

All monies will be donated to LONGRUN THOROUGHBRED RETIREMENT FOUNDATION.

THOROUGHBLOG will take bids, in $5 increments, starting at $50.00 beginning today through Saturday at Noon.


Bids should be submitted by email so that there is a time stamp and I will update the bid process as the bids come in (or soon after).
If you send a bid using the COMMENT SECTION, that is okay too, I will update the same as those will also be time-stamped.

So buy this jacket and help the racehorses of Ontario!

AUCTION CLOSES SATURDAY AT NOON!!



KENNEDY ROAD BEYER FIGURE CHANGED

101 for Shadowless (not 78)

The first stakes win for the 3yo SHADOWLESS turned out to be one of the bfastest performanaces of the year at Woodbine.

CANADIAN-BRED HARLEM ROCKER SET TO SMOKE


The Cigar Mile, the LAST GRADE 1 in New York this season, is on Friday as the holiday week begins in the United States - actually it begins Thursday.
But on Friday, the big race in New York is named in honour of one of the greatest racehorses of all time and Canadian-bred HARLEM ROCKER has been pointed to the race for a long time.

The Prince of Wales winner will face about seven rivals including Arson Squad, Bribon, Kodiak Kowboy, Storm Play, Tale of Ekati, Visionaire, and Wanderin Boy. Past the Point is a possible starter.

Harlem Rocker is owned by Adena Racing Venture and trained by Todd Pletcher.

    A letter came across yesterday from the owner of MEADOW PRINCESS (one of a few breakdowns at Woodbine last week) and said the filly has been retired with a serious knee injury and all will be done to save her as a broodmare of riding horse.
    Good luck to Meadow.
