Below is a brief financial summary of the Cairo Kiss account, you can view a more detailed financial breakdown here. If you have any questions regarding the account please contact us at support@myracehorse.com.

Cairo Kiss To Be Retired

After discussions with partners Slam Dunk Racing, we have agreed retiring Cairo Kiss is the best path forward for her. It has been a long journey for Cairo Kiss and we believe this is the right time. We did everything we could to give her another shot as a racehorse, but her performances are telling us it’s time for a change. As trainer Jonathan Wong mentioned to us after her most recent race, her works are far better than the effort she is putting forth in her races. While we all had hoped she would be the next great “comeback story”, returning off of something as serious as colic can be extremely tough.

We have found a fantastic home for Cairo Kiss with Linda Madsen of Milky Way Farms in Temecula, CA. Linda will take Cairo Kiss in as a broodmare. Linda has quite the roster of stallions for a California farm, recently acquiring Graydar. We will remain in touch with Linda to provide updates regarding who she does decide to breed Cairo Kiss to, along with any foal updates when that time comes.

Between the time Cairo Kiss has been in training along with costs associated from her recovery from colic, the Cairo Kiss account series is severely negative. Financial details will be provided at the closure of the account in approx. 60 days.

Race Recap

Cairo Kiss broke slowly finding herself towards the rear off the start, yet again. She made up ground quickly and appeared to be looming with a decent run heading into the far turn. As they straightened out for the stretch drive, Cairo Kiss simply couldn’t quicken. Based on the way she works in the mornings, trainer Jonathan Wong expected her to put forward a much better effort today.

Cairo Kiss has been through a lot and coming off something as serious as colic can affect a horse dramatically. It appears Cairo Kiss does not have racing on her mind anymore. We will be sitting down with majority partners Slam Dunk Racing to map out the best path forward for her.

Workout Video and Race Update

Here is a video of Cairo Kiss’ work from yesterday morning.

Trainer Jonathan Wong reported she exited out of her work in good order. Cairo Kiss will be entered today for a maiden claiming $5,000 going 5.5 furlongs on Thursday, October 1st. This race is a “Sub” race in the condition book which means it will only be used for Thursday if one of the slotted races for that day is not used.

Workout Report

Cairo Kiss worked 5 furlongs from the gate in 1:02.4 at Golden Gate this morning. She worked with a stablemate, galloping out in 1:16. After breaking on the slower side in her comeback effort, trainer Jonathan Wong wanted to sharpen her up and get some speed from the gate into her.

Based on her most recent performance, majority partner Slam Dunk racing and our team agreed to drop and be aggressive in our race selection. We don’t believe anyone will claim her due to the combination of the length of her layoff and her first performance back. It’s been a long journey, we want to put Cairo Kiss in the best spot to be successful/productive. After seeing how Cairo Kiss exits this work, we will discuss race options for early – mid October.

Race Recap

A disappointing return to the races yesterday for Cairo Kiss. From the get go she never quite had her mind on running. After breaking slow, Evin Roman asked her to improve her early position which she did, but then slowly retreated from there. There was no real excuse, she scoped clean and returned to the barn in okay order. We will she how she comes out of the race in the coming days.
