Unlucky news about a next race for Brave Monarch. We entered at Penn National, but they used the race on the dirt because there is apparently an issue with the turf course there. We think running on the dirt would be wasting a race with this horse being that he trains just ok over it, so will not pursue running.
The Delaware racing secretary indicated to Graham that there is quite a bit of interest in a 25k-30k maiden claiming race on the grass there, and expects to use it as an extra within the next week. Since BM was excluded there last time, chances are we will draw in.
Our backup races are the 25k maiden claimer on July 2nd at Belmont or the 25k maiden claimer on July 4th at Monmouth.
We'll also keep a close eye out for any extras around the region
Lupe reports that Phosphorescent is doing much better and that his cough is almost non existent. Accordingly, Phos will resume jogging tomorrow morning, and if all looks good get back into regular training early next week
