Yes but he had stronger competition at Oaklawn.

True.  And wasn't that a 10K race and the other was 5K?

Lana finished 2nd tonight at Penn, so the kids are coming ‘round.

Found a Nicanor granddaughter just now.  Kilimanjara is by Air Force Blue x Nic's dau. Fleagle Kowski.  She is a three yr. old and runs Sat. at Laurel, 9th race at 4:56 pm.  Apparently she has had one win in two starts already, at least according to pedigree query.  Owner is Tom Rooney's dau. Theresa Rooney Meis, which makes sense since Nicanor stood at Shamrock Farm owned by the Rooneys.  Hope she has a successful race Saturday and safe day for all racers.

Got notification that Fleagle's filly Kilimanjara is entered at Penn Natl. on June 30 in Race 2.  Hope she does well.

Me too!

what did you think of Westminster winner? He is the most attractive bloodhound I’ve ever seen! Great bone to muscle ratio, awesome coloring, confident stride. Although, I thought his wrinkling around face/ears a bit light?

I thought the Bloodhound, Trumpet,  was well-balanced.  Am used to seeing more wrinkling but the handler didn't pull the skin forward to accentuate it either.  In this age of animal rights types I do believe it is good to breed for moderation rather than exaggeration in all breeds.  Don't get me started on one of my breeds, the collie, or German Shepherds for that matter.  I was fortunate to see Hatter in person at a show in SC and he was so moderate compared to what I expected he would be.  I was amazed.

I did become weary of all the promotion for the Fr. Bulldog, Winston, in this past year.  Amazing how popular they are lately, much as it was around the 20's or 30's I believe.

I think the Frenchies are popular as they are more family interactive than toys and “purse” dogs? I think they are a healthier breed too?

(I had to giggle during the working group, with the malamute voicing his thoughts while other dogs went through their paces- it is a dog show after all)
