Shez for You's First Out at Delta Downs

November 10, 2016 

Mojo's 2YO Filly, Shez for You (by Macho Uno out of Shebelongstoyou), had to overcome a few obstacles in her first race at Delta Downs (DED) on November 10 and ended up finishing 4th.

“The Mojo Filly encountered a couple of challenges in her race tonight at DED," reports Mojo's CEM, Fred Taylor. "The winner was a big class dropper and Shez for You stumbled at the start."

When the gates opened, Shez for You took a bad step and had to settle behind a pack of runners from the start of the race. Around the clubhouse turn, she had to do extra work to get up with the pace setters.  Most of the way down the backstretch and into the far turn, she had to stay in the middle of the track. Once she got to the top of the stretch, she held her ground and held on to finish 4th.

"While it’s not likely that our horse would’ve beaten the winner tonight (who drew off by 11 lengths), if the Mojo Filly had been in a better position early in the race, we may have hit the board," Fred explains.

After the race, Mojo’s Trainer, JR Caldwell reported: “The extra work from the start caused her to tire just a bit at the end of the race, but she came back to the barn clean (i.e., didn’t suffer any obvious injury from the stumble).  So, that's good and she’ll be ready to go again once another race comes up in the condition book.”

We’ll chalk this race up as a solid workout for Shez for You, and she’ll be primed to go again at the next asking. Stay tuned for upcoming racing info about the Mojo Filly and our other Mojo Runners in Cajun Country!
