RED N BLACK ATTACK HITS THE TRACK!
Command The Land did Evergreen Park Racing Club 2017 owners proud last week by finishing a strong second in its first race since being purchased by the Club this spring.
Now it’s Red N Black Attack’s turn!
The Club’s six-year-old Kentucky-bred gelding races on the same track Command The Land did, Northlands Park in Edmonton, when it makes its Alberta debut on Monday – Race No. 6 with a 3:26 p.m. post time.
Red’s race has the exact same conditions as Command’s last week – six furlongs for three year olds and up and it is also a claiming race. That means the horse could be claimed (purchased) by a rival stable for the $5,000 claiming price.
And, just like last week, the Club horse is up against a horse owned by local owner/trainer Tommy Rycroft.
Red N Black Attack is coming out of the No. 5 hole while Rycroft’s Live A Little, also a Kentucky bred, is in No. 3 at the starting gate.
There are seven horses in the race.
One change trainer Robertino Diodoro has made for the second Club start is the jockey. Keishan Balgobin has taken over for Rico Walcott. You can view Balgobin’s stats here: http://www.equibase.com/profiles/Results.cfm?type=People&searchType=J&eID=148582
Racing fans are reminded they can watch Red run, and place a bet, at the Pines Restaurant & Casino at Evergreen Park.
Besides Northlands races the Pines also shows, and allows betting, on races from Lethbridge.
There are many local trainers/owners taking part at Northlands and Lethbridge.
Both Club horses will be shipped to Grande Prairie in June to prepare for The Horses At Evergreen Park.
The local entries for Northlands and Lethbridge, highlighted in yellow, can be viewed here.
