Odds And Ends

Trainer Chip Woolley decided where Kentucky Derby winner, Mine That Bird, will be heading next. His next race will be the Grade 2 West Virginia Derby at Mountaineer Racetrack and Casino on August 1. Four weeks after that, the Derby winner will run in the "Summertime Derby", the Grade 1 Travers Stakes at Saratoga.

Speaking of Saratoga, the moose in the picture caused a bit of a stir at The Spa today. Apparently, the moose got loose and wandered around the track. Thankfully, no harm was done to the track or the moose as a result of this adventure. I am glad for that. I guess I have a soft spot for moose.

Rachel Alexandra returned to the track this morning at Churchill Downs and worked six furlongs in 1:12 flat.

On foreign soil, Ascot opens their premier five-day meeting on Tuesday and the Queen's Plate, the Canadian Kentucky Derby, runs this weekend.

All in all, even with the Triple Crown over, there is still a lot going on in the world of the equine. Enjoy!!! Tune in again tomorrow for more from They Are Off. For right now, I am Gone... GOODBYE!
