Today was the day….February 1. The Retired Racehorse Project made the announcement on the accepted trainers! My friend (and lesson buddy) Beth texted me “Let me know about rrp!” which I didn’t notice until after work, and that reminded me, I should check my personal email! And there it was!
Congratulations! Your application to compete in the 2019 Thoroughbred Makeover HAS BEEN ACCEPTED! You are one of over 600 talented and diverse trainers who will acquire and train a Thoroughbred to show the world what an ex-racehorse can do….
Next up, I need to see if I can track down my order of a microchip from the Jockey Club. Then, I’ll declare Long Legacy as my horse, and the preparation for Kentucky begins in earnest!
And, the link to my blog from the trainer listing works!
