Haskell Invitational & Waiting List

Yesterday... Sunday... the Haskell Invitational was run at Monmouth Park in NJ. A number of this year's top 3 year olds competed and it had all the excitement of watching the sun bake my yard into cement. Sorry, but there simply isn't a 3 year old this year that arouses my continuing interest. No great ones in this crop! One of the commentators mentioned that the 23 stakes races for 3 year olds have been won this year by... wait for it... 23 DIFFERENT horses. Now that is the definition of mediocrity. The Haskell was won by last year's 2 year old champ, Looking at Lucky. Which means he's one race better than anybody else. Until the next race. Ho hum.

Waiting List
For the first time in years, I am opening a waiting list for upcoming litters. I get email daily with questions about the Fall possibilities and they usually end with "please let me know when SO-and-So is bred." I am willing to do that on a limited basis, hence, a waiting list. Families will go through the usual screening and pay a fee to be on the list and will have first option to upgrade to the reservation list once one of the girls is definitely "with pup." Since I have a limited number of litters a year, this seems to be the best solution for people who want one of my puppies.
