Indie has been struggling a bit, as I am sure is fairly evident since she hasn't attempted a maiden race yet. She has run a total of six, I believe, schooling races. Indie has had a few challenges over the past twelve weeks. John has kept faith in her, though, and with luck, she is ready to go.

When Indie started her schooling, she had some sort of issue with the night time schooling races. She would perform well during the night, but something about running at night turned her off. John was unsure what it was, but thought she could work through it.

It took her five schooling races, but she worked through her issues, finishing second. Unfortunately, during that race, she hurt herself. John wasn't sure if it was because of the track conditions, but she was unable to jump into her crate after turnout the next morning.

John was back to the drawing board with her. She needed to recoup from her injury, which was the second similar incident since her arrival at Derby Lane. He thought she would be back on the track last week. With bated breath, we waited for her to show up on the schooling schedule.

Tonight was the night. She was back on the schedule. She won her schooling race by six lengths. Now, if only she didn't hurt herself, she should be really ready for her maiden Smile

Update to the update...

Dave checked on her tonight. She is on the schooling list for Friday. The good news is, she hopefully didnt hurt herself again since she never made the schooling list after her last race. The bad news is, she isn't up for her maiden yet. That will come, though. This is forward progress at least.

I've been patiently waiting for little Indie! Great news that she won her schooling last night - chart notes say "Won with ease".

Best of luck on Friday.

Btw - I have another sponsor for her and just waiting to get the check for Northern Lights!
