"I'm thrilled with the turn out," Fred reports.  "It was a fun day of racing, and just about everyone in our group cashed a few tickets!"

Cowgirl N Up

The Mojo faithful started the day off by cheering on our friends at Diamond D Ranch who sent out their speedy filly, Cowgirl N Up, in the third race.  The 3YO by My Golden Song out of a Pure Mischief mare provided everyone at the track with a dazzling performance on the turf winning by six lengths!

Mojo Filly Needs More Time

Based on feedback from our vet and surgeon, Wild About Annie needs 30 days more rest.

After lightly galloping the Mojo Filly every other day for sevaral weeks; soaking her legs in ice water; and applying poultice, she was still exhibiting signs of being a little "gimpy" in her left front leg while going out to exercise in the morning.  
"Her condition isn't worse; but it's not any better either," reports Diamond D's Manager, Jimmy "Scooter" Dodwell.  "Once she warmed up, she was fine and is actually pulling on the rider to go, go, go.  But, I'm just not comfortable pressing without making sure she's 100% sound to do that."

Just to make sure there isn't something else bothering her, we sent Annie to the clinic to have the surgeon take a closer look at her ankles, knees, and other joints.  After the exam, the surgeon determined there's not a major issue:
"Her front legs are still a little sore and her ligaments need more time to get over it."

So, that's what we're going to do.  The doctors both agree to not stop her exercise, "You don't want to lose her fitness; and light exercise is actually good because it helps to strengthen the ligaments."  We just don't want to over do it either.  So, Annie will be placed on light work for three days of the week over the next 30 days, then we'll evaluate her condition and go from there.
