We’ve got the kind of weekend ahead that makes up for slogging through the snow earlier this month!
First of all, we have a couple from a radio station from the Toledo area staying at the Guesthouse tonight and then broadcasting live from the farm tomorrow about horses and history of Paris and Bourbon County, Rosecrest Farm, and the Guesthouse.
You can listen live from 9 to 11 AM Saturday morning at www.talkradio1470.com ! Bobby Shiflet, Margaret Layton and moi will be talking with Rick & Jackie Metz.
Then we have Sharla Rae running in the $150,000 Grade 3 Bourbonette S. at Turfway tomorrow afternoon. It’s a very competitive race….Click here for the Blood-Horse’s take on the race.
But there’s nary a doubt in our hearts! We’re rooting for the beautiful Sharla Ray…winner of the California Oaks, Barretts Debutante Stakes and Pike Place Dancer Stakes. She has four wins from eight starts.
First of all, WC Racing owned our GOLDENCENTS, and did everything right by him at every turn. Second, they care for all their horses the way they did Goldencents, as I described in one of my earlier posts you can read if you click here. Third, WC Racing makes us part of their family, so that’s why we can say “we have Sharla Rae running”.
The best part of the weekend is yet to come, as Glenn Sorgenstein will be coming to stay at The Guesthouse at Rosecrest Farm on Saturday night after the race. Here they will get to see their five mares who have accommodatingly ALL foaled already.
Glenn loves his horses and he offered a month ago to trade “his ocean front property in Malibu” for our front row seat when his babies were arriving in the snow up to our you-know-whats. So hopefully that tells you what a joy it is to share his babies with him this weekend.
Life is sweet.
