    Congrats Mike! Sounds like you've got a good dog there, best wishes for continued success. Like most here, we may not agree on politics but we can all appreciate good dogs and hard work.

    Good going but shouldn't you have to share that Blue?

    Guys thanks a bunch for the cudos!! It feels good coming from all of you! Sam is a "Yellow Dog Democrat" for the record too! He is a fine dog and he is now consistently there every weekend. It has taken a lot of work and faith that he would get there. It is easy to give up on a good dog because this game is so hard, but I knew this boy had it from day one!

    Sam is trained by Bill Eckett, Bobby George did his transition work and Clint Avant did his basics. Blackwater is hard to beat, and it is pretty normal to see two or three Blackwater dogs on the podium in all the stakes.

    Thanks again guys this is special!!!!

    Not yet but given how consistently he has been finishing I'm confident he will get the points. Thanks

    What is impressive about Isaac last weekend is he had not trained for 6 weeks. Just water blinds to build his fitness back up. He tore a shoulder muscle last summer that we repaired and then got some tendenidus this winter because we apparently brought him back to quick so he had been restricted to belly rubs by my wife and water blinds by me for 6 weeks. If I can keep that boy healthy, we will see great things from him.

    Raven is a hell of a good marker! What I remenber most about him back then is if he entered a derby he won it.
