End of September... Red Razzo and Celesse remain AWOL. Nasty Affair is off the AWOL list with 2 recent workouts at Belmont. I'm Not Joking had a win in September and is the 5/2ml favorite at Pimlico on 10/2 in a starter allowance, where the winner gets an automatic berth in the Claiming Crown this December at Gulfstream. The miracle comeback could still happen. :-)

Totals through October 10. Game effort by Vintage Hollywood at Belmont last week, but just couldn't get up for the win. That followed disappointing efforts by both Who's In Charge and Top of the Game the previous week. This stable desperately needs another strong performance from its stable leader Crumb Bun.
A little progress ... Arch of Troy 2 1 0 0 $29,165 (still nada - like gone from the planet :-(...mare - maybe a baby? Seeds of Time 8 2 1 3 $62,567 Nomizar 7 2 1 1 $74,496 Rumor Ridge 4 1 0 1 $15,850 September Stable total $182,078
Okay....My stable is at a whopping $24,095. To be fair and honest, barring massive injections of Super Juice to my four legged creatures (I shy at considering them thoroughbred race horses), and a collection of Breeder's Cup wins, I really see no reason for my interest in this prior to December 31st. Call me silly, but I guess I know when I'm doomed. There is always next year!!!! LMAO
Vintage Hollywood came up the rail to win Race 5 at the Big A by a long nose. Overlooked in the betting, he was 7/2 in the ML but went off at 8-1. He was given a great ride by Pablo Morales. By earning $40,700 for his efforts, Vintage Hollywood has become the leading earner in my claiming stable with year to date earnings of $115,910.
My stable is at $169.905 in mid-November. I have some of my stable alumni from previous years that are still racing. Always fun seeing the equibase alert emails for them. Barcode was in my faux stable in 2018 and broke down at Parx today. I've never been a real owner, but it's always sad to see a horse break down on the track. RIP Barcode.
