Happy Tuesday Everyone,
I hope all of you are having a wonderful week! The postcards for the contest are steadily arriving. You have several more days to get yours to us! Good Luck to ALL!
This is TOO CUTE! My John was sitting on the floor in the den last night reading many of them aloud to Dottie. It is so touching to hear the loving comments you have written about ME! THANK YOU for sharing these kind words with ME and MY TEAM!
Yesterday, I shared the front part of my JOCKEY CLUB PAPERS with you! The back portion of them is also very, very important. This is where THE OFFICIAL RECORD of Races Won in the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico is recorded for a horse. After each race, the WINNER has the following information properly recorded by a racing official on his/her papers: Date Won, Net Value to Winner, Type of Race, Distance, Name of Stake or Handicap, Name of Track and the Signature of the Racing Official Who Recorded the Information on the papers.
THE JOCKEY CLUB PAPERS must always travel with a horse when he or she runs. When I went to Oaklawn to run in the Apple Blossom, my papers went with me. They are immediately turned into the track’s racing office so all of the recorded details pertaining to the horse as ownership, markings, and races won to date are available to the officials.
The requirement that the JC Papers be with the horse for each race is true for ALL horses ALL of the time at ALL race tracks. It is a very specific rule that must be followed in our industry to keep everything perfect for the horses and the FANS!
In the photo above, you can see MY OFFICIAL RECORD! There are my 19 VICTORIES all properly recorded! WOW!
Take Care…and have a wonderful day!
Hugs to ALL~
