As an owner, I promised to keep everyone informed of how Bow is doing.

There isn't much to report, which in itself is good news....he's still plugging away in Grade B at Woodlands and has now finished in the money in 3 out of 5 starts for RFA. There is some pretty tough competition at The Woodlands, with a lot of nice young pups breaking in there before moving to Wheeling, so I am pleased he is holding his own at Grade B. He will be 2 years old next week so still plenty of time to develop.
His latest start he finished 5th - but if you watched the race you will have seen him sandwiched between two dogs most of the way with none of them giving ground. I was pleased with the way he handled this challenge instead of backing out. He always tries to the end and I am very proud of him.

Right now Bow continues to be by far my highest-earning pup, and the most consistent finisher. By contrast my other racers have not been so fortunate recently, but this is the inevitable ups and downs of racing!
I have 3 off track at the moment while resting or recovering from injury, and have had two dogs break legs in as many months. The 3 who are resting are making good progress and should be back on track soon. The two broken legs are healing and the dogs will be petted out when they are mended.
Being an owner certainly isn't easy!

If anyone ever has any questions about Climbin Rainbows, please feel free to post and I will do my best to answer!

He's doing well, Angela, and looks to be a solid track dog.
