Uptown Charly Brown has been racing at Tampa Downs in Florida. His first race in December he won by 8 legnths.......his second race in January he won by 6 legnths........we knew they were planning to race him this weekend, but there is still nothing about horse racing that is a sure thing. With that said we decided to come down and my husband booked the cruise in case we ventured down here and the horse didn't make the cut for the race. After 43 horses being contenders for this stakes race.......we are in!!!!! We are one of 59 shareholders or you could say owners who have all of their fingers and toes crossed.
When Glen presented all this horse stuff to me he also educated me on the odds of a race horse even placing in a race in it's lifetime.......we know the odds.......we think we are dreaming. The Daily Racing Form has our horse in the futures for the Kentucky Derby. If you are in Las Vegas this weekend or any horsetrack you can bet on this horse to win the Derby......the odds are 50-1.........this is nuts just writing all this. My husband asked if I blogged about any of this yet and I was unsure he even wanted me to .......he was like I think you should. I am hoping all of you out there to have your fingers crossed for us too. Can't wait to tell you the results, but as you can see from his history he is a very special horse and I really enjoyed seeing him yesterday and getting this photo.....he is a beauty!!!!!!!!
