My race horse by ChadwickApril 3, 2006
As some of you may know I invested in a standard bred race horse back in January. It’s taken up quite a bit of my time and money for that matter lol. It wasn’t something I fell into, but rather something that has been in my family for some time. My grandfather had quite a few race horses back in the early 60′s and on into the early 80′s. Last winter my parents purchased their first horse “Belles Arrow” who did rather well her first year out. In only 5 starts she came in first twice, second once, and third twice. Her summer ended early suffering from a knee injury. It was pretty exciting watching her race and getting into the race business.
This past Jan. I had the opportunity to purchase a colt out of the Ohio sire Nobleland Sam. He sold for $9,000 back at the sale in September however I was able to get him a bit cheaper. The guy thought he had EPM because he was clumbsy in the rear in so they just wanted to get rid of him. I bought him and my trainer later realized he had two black chords preventing blood flow. We had him cut and ever since then he has shown nothing, but improvement. He is already trained down to 2:27 which is about a month ahead of other horses. When I first got him he was named “Ira’s Sunny Sam” I later changed it to what it is now “Boondock Sam”.2 Comments »
… by ChadwickMarch 22, 2006
Since I missed the chat the other night and I still feel pretty crappy about it. Ive uploaded a video from the Arnold Classic this year and posted it in my forum area for the members to see. I was gonna send Steve some videos to make up for missin chat but Id rather you members get them now then have to wait. I’ll try and get another video or two posted here in the next couple days for you guys.
Anyone who has been a member for awhile knows I was always on time or even early for my chats. I didnt want members having to wait around on me so I made sure I was there. I’ve missed my last two chats and Im sorry. The first one I hoonestly had no way of knowin I was gonna miss it. This last time I should have just told Abbie the night before insteadof waitging to see if I felt any better. Im not sure when I will be chattin again since its been said Steve might give my spot next week away cause Ive missed my last two chats which is understanable I guess. I hope to be chattin with you all soon though.1 Comment »
tonites chat by ChadwickMarch 20, 2006
Hey everyone I just wanted to make a post and apologize for missing tonights chat. I’ve been sick for about the past week and lastnight my head started hurting so bad that I went through the 24 hour health care nearby. They gave me some antibotics and pills for congestion. I slept most of the day today didn’t even go to the gym. I was hoping to make the chat since I haven’t chatted in awhile, but I barely had enough energy to get off the couch. Hopefully you all understand and I hope to see you all in my future chat.No Comments »
