Training went well this morning.The back ankle seems to have responded to treatment and is on the right track. The cough has gone away and there is no indication of an elevated temperature but You'llbeinmyheart is still a little subdued in her attitude. Dallas Stewart (another horse trainer who is a friend) took her over to the paddock with his pony for a schooling session. This will help familiarize her with the area so it won't be a completely foreign experience under race conditions. A Kentucky Oaks Day crowd is pretty overwhelming so this is an important lesson.She perked up when she realized where she was. Gary was encouraged with the change in attitude.
