No Race Saturday

The race we had targeted for Nileist at Del Mar Saturday was not used. As a result we are going to get a work or two into him and wait until the Santa Anita meet begins after Christmas for a race. Santa Anita has a similar program to Del Mar that we will be taking advantage of, the “Ship and Stay” program. Any horse who last ran out of state receives a 20% purse bonus for the first start (split between owner and trainer) on top of race earnings. For the second and third starts a 10 percent bonus or $1000 (the greater of the two) will be given to the owner and trainer who brought the horse to California (Battle Born Racing and MyRacehorse).
