End of the meet at Prairie Meadows

Ah, fall is in the air, and soon, the only racing in town will involve wheels. So tonight, we're heading out to say so long to some of our Prairie Meadows favorites: Royal Move, Silverbdancing, Highest Degree. And while we're there, we'll say hello to an old friend from the Derby prep races: Theregoesjojo.

And of course, we're looking forward to the final thoroughbred stakes for 2009: the Prairie Meadows Oaks (past performances; pdf) and the Prairie Meadows Derby (past performances; pdf)

The Oaks looks wide open to me, and with a full field, it's likely to have a nice payoff. DRF covers the contenders for both races in a track report. Me, I gotta get out of here -- we're headed to the track, one last time.

My latest horse crush, Perfect Bull, ran a nice second in the Derby today. No bad for a Minn-bred! Hope you all had a great day there!
