Vegas had a good race yesterday in the first at Woodbine. A mile and a sixteenth Maiden Allowance. He led all the way, looking really strong but faded a bit at the end and was caught. Vegas was Freckles’ colt by Pleasant Tap. A year younger than Parker. So another of Reno’s (the orphan) older brothers.
He’s got a totally different personality from Parker. Vegas saunters into the paddock at Woodbine and ambles around looking at the people. Wondering if any of them have snacks. He’s big and kind of lazy. Looks like a big old police horse, not a racehorse. But he’s powerful and very hard to hold once he’s on the track.
