Angry Dragon Should Debut Soon
Here's our baby. Her trainer has decided to debut her at Philadelphia Park (over a dirt track) rather than Arlington for the simple reason that the purses are bigger there. Since Chelle and I own only 5% of her anyway, the purses are not a big deal to us, but if we can have a two year-old filly who runs well over dirt, our dreams of the next Kentucky Oaks winner can stay with us a while longer. Ha! (Hey, let us dream!)
Angry Dragon is such a tiny little thing, even though she's getting nicely muscled. If she stays healthy and fit, she should have her debut at Philadelphia Park within a month. Keep an eye out! Her sire, Smarty Jones, is proving to be a good win-early sire, so we are liking her chances, and if anybody can get her to run, Chuck Simon certainly can.
Her sister, Red Baroness, is still on the farm in Kentucky, I believe, but should be headed to Arlington Park soon to start training.
