So many things go on daily at the race track. Things are always changing. Its like being on a roller coaster ride - sometimes your up and sometimes your down. Learning how to take it all in stride is a constant.
Finally the weather is getting nicer here in Arkansas. Not a cloud in the sky and the sun is shining bright. I had an easy morning only working two horses for Ingrid Mason. She is a top trainer on the Chicago circuit and also does well when she ships out of town to run. Ingrid is very hands on with her horses. I admire her for her work ethic and strength as a professional trainer. She is only about 5 foot tall but she is tough and knows how to get her horses ready to win. I rode two horses for her here at Oaklawn and win on one and had a third on the other. I ride again for her tomorrow. I also checked with some other trainers that I ride for to say hello.
