It was rough going on the final day of the nursery field. They have been switching two different flocks of sheep every day and this was the day of the running sheep. Tam, June and Bracken had terrible runs but you can't really blame them.
They had let us know that during the second round of the open they would be calling you off if there was no chance for you to either make the double lift, get USBCHA points or get day money. We have been running behind every day and they need to make up that time so they can be finished this evening for the double lift tomorrow. They didn't do too many call offs yesterday but today they are sending people away, right and left.
Maid ran very early in the morning and worked very hard for her run
Donnie ran in a terribly hot time.
A couple of other notable runs today : Alasdair MacRae ran Star (Donnie's mother) and as usual he made it look easy and scored a 91. Lyle Lad was the only one to threaten to top that (at this moment we still have a few hours left) and after she had a beautiful run - only 4 points off to the pen- she lost them behind the pen and they ran to the exhaust with Shep hot on their heels. Shep grabbed one hard and they gave her a DQ.
Don't forget to keep checking the scores on the Bluegrass website and plan on watching the webcast live tomorrow!
