I didn't see your earlier post so I wasn't directing mine at anything you said. And your point is a good one. But I still like the job that Hennig has done with her. He has put together a winning streak of 6 races with her. Has the black type. I don't know what the value of this filly is right now but it must be substantial. That might be more important that the purse money she's won. And he doesn't seem to have worn her out in the process. Maybe I am just sensitive to this subject of horse management after watching some of the moves that Baffert has been making lately (running Officer back on 7 days rest, running Puerto Banus back on 9). I guess we'll never know if Hennig could have gotten even more than he has out of Summer Colony. But if I owned this filly, I think I would feel pretty good right now.TGJB wrote:
