    Mockingbird Lane

    Hopefully I'm not getting too happy too soon about this. But my hubby did something so cool. He bought partnership in a racehorse. It's a 2 year old that is now in training up at Belmont. Mockingbird Lane is his name. I wanna go to the Derby and wear a funny hat next spring! Come on Mockingbird Lane! Run baby run! WOO HOO!!!!!

    Have your jockey wear number 1313. That would be cool
    A little more volume in the headphones please.

    I don't think we get much of a say in it. It's a partnership that we bought into that owns the horse. If I had my way about it the horse would wear 5150. But they change numbers from race to race depending on the line up. It's not the same as a race car. They don't have a number like that that they use throughout the season. And that is about all I know about all of this so far other that we're going to go see the horse before too much long. Oh and his great-great-grandfather was Secretariat.

    The hubby spent a great amount of time researching this before he picked a colt. I'm excited.

    Horse update. Here's the horse we bought in to. He's up training in Saratoga now. And the link is to a place where they post information about his workouts.

    Thanks. I hope he does ok. This is our first time trying anything like this. My husband's grandfather was a half owner in a stable in the west Chicago area years ago that had jumpers and racer horses. So he does know a little bit about this so if we do well with this maybe we'll try it again.

    I wouldn't bet on that horse. Tiny pecker. Now I'm not a horse guy, but it just seems to me that horse has a really tiny pecker for a horse. I'm pretty sure my pecker is bigger than that horses pecker and he's got me by a couple hundred pounds. I'd bet he could whip me in a sprint, but not in other ....pecker things.

    No offense, but I think the other horses will laugh at him.

    Did you even LOOK at his pecker before you bought that horse?

    I like the 1313 on his hind quarter! Anyway, Saratoga is a great track. When I lived in Albany, NY, I would make it a point to get up to the track for the Travers (the big race at Saratoga each year). Beautiful little town...and to think I gave it all up for Denver??

    How's this for strange. 1313 is the horse's Hip Number. That's the number they assign to the horse when they sell them before the horse is named. Here's a clip of Mockingbird Lane running 2 furlongs. His Hip # is in the upper left hand corner his sir/dame is in the lower center.

    http://sovereignstable.com/index_flash.php

    Ok I followed the link. It doesn't work quite like I thought it would. After you get there. Click on stable and then scroll down to Mockingbird Lane's picture. Above that there will be choices at the top of his picture. You will see a choice for a clip of him running the 2 furlong.
