Indy’s Racing Thoughts! The Road to the Roses Continues!

Dear friends!

We had a couple of weeks off from the races as we mourn the loss of Pudge’s Dad, George Potter. Thanks to George and his love for horses and rescue, I was able to move from the race track to a wonderful forever home now located in the Peach State of Georgia! I have wonderful humans to dote on me and take great care of me and I am forever grateful that George made that dream a reality. George was also a horse racing fan and enjoyed our racig blog here. He would often read the blogs as soon as they were published so he could get caught up on the racing news.

George is greatly missed today and will always be missed. However! He would want us to continue working hard each day just as he did. We fondly remember Pudge’s Dad and for that reason we will keep on following the races just as he would have!

And as they say….

Away they go!

Pudge and I missed our races for part of March so here is the link to the listing of races, the replays and much more:

The Leader board link:
Congrats to International Star for securing the top place in the list after a dynamic run in the Louisiana Derby on this past Saturday!

The Fillies and their preps for the Oaks can be found here:

This weekend there are some very exciting races coming up for the colts and fillies:

Namely the Wood at Aqueduct, Santa Anita Derby at Santa Anita and the Bluegrass Stakes to delight you at the Opening weekend at Keeneland!

The fillies will be running at Aqueduct in the Gazelle, Keeneland’s Ashland Stakes and the Fantasy Stakes at Oakland Park.

After this we have one more weekend of preps to go before the Derby! NBC Sports Network will have coverage of the preps starting at 5:30 pm on Saturday, April 4th so you want to be on the watch for that!

Next week we’ll have the full recap of Saturday’s racing along with links to the replays. Today we learned that Far From Over is now off the Derby trail due to a fracture discovered during training this week. We’ll be wishing him well for his surgery and recovery and with the hope that he’ll return later on and continue his quest of greatness on the track and off.

Pudge and I thank you for all your support during this time of loss. George was a fan of horses and racing and so we will continue to forge ahead with our racing news as he would have wanted us to. God speed and take care everyone!

Your friends in racing, Indy and Pudge ♥
