Timely News (Mymamastillstandin's little sister ) will run at Delta Downs in the 3rd race Saturday Oct 31st at about 7:00 CDT.
Al and Melody Helms and Steve and I are listed as the breeders for this filly.
Timely News survived quite a mess when she was a yearling. She thought it would be fun to swim in one of the ditches near Sam Breau's farm. She had scratches here and there all over and she was soaked in mud from her trek into the world beyond the pasture. Sam's grooms patched her up and by the time she was ready to break to the saddle she looked like a potential race horse.
She was 7th in her last race at Evangeline Downs. Who knows she's had 3 months to stay fit and train she might do fine.
Cheer for Her
Don't really have the $60 for gas and the round trip to Delta is about 200 miles. I don't really have the energy to drive it either. So if it is on TVG we will watch it.
I'm still pretty tired from my 4 day stint as an extra in the movie Secretariat. Most of my time was as a patron in the diner scene. It is up and down in and out. When we finished they sent us to play fans in the grand stands. They dressed us in '70's polyester outfits. The fabric really absorbs the heat. The temperature was only 80 degrees but all of the extras were using their hats and props as fans.
Monday there is an infield scene with as many extras as they can find so I'm going if my name is on the list. I know I will really appreciate the check whenever it arrives.
I'm on Facebook if any of you are on that web site and I will post this on the horseystories.blogspot.com.
