Another SWEET win!

Our now-4-year-old filly SWEET HALORY put in a game, game effort to win a 6-furlong allowance at Fair Grounds Racetrack yesterday. YAYYYYY! She’s a filly with tons of ability, which she showed by winning her career debut at Del Mar, and she has two wins and two seconds, now, from six career starts in the intervening two years.  So she has demanded LOTS of patience from us.  But she’s earned $77,290 in those six starts!
