A wise handicapper once said 1 second can mean a differene of 5-10 lengths, depending on the distance, talent, and striding of the field.
According to the post race interview with trainer Tom Wenzel after Stopshoppingdebbie succeeded at pushing her steak to 8 for 8, Debbie's next start will be the $65,000 Emerald Distaff going 1 1/8 miles on Sunday, August 24.
Debbie stays local for another month - entered in the Boeing Handicap this weekend at Emerald against "older mares", all being 4yos.
All set to go 7 for 7 on June 8th in the WA State Legislature Handicap at Emerald Downs.
I was very impressed. She was saddled with top weight, had to break from the outside gate, and faced her toughest competition yet. Despite all this, she still managed to run away from the field, opening up on them with ease. Jockey Rocco Bowen was just as happy with her run, stating that he didnt hardly even have to step on the gas. Who knows how good she really is?
She worked 6F from the gate today handily. 90% sure she will make her first start of the Emerald Downs season on May 11th in their first stakes race for older mares.
Season doesnt start till April 12 but the first stakes race she'd qualify for at Emerald doesnt go off until May 11th. Im sure youll see her run in a high level allowence some time later this month.
Both works were posted at emerald downs so its safe to say she will be ataying there, at least for her first start if not all this season.
