  1. That’s good news Melinda – why was she vanned off?

    She had about 8 weeks out after her second race start and came back Oct 17 for her third start when she was up for claiming for $10,000 and was vanned off near the ¾ and unable to walk off. But as you say she’s very healthy and happy, so we should see her back racing again soon, I’d imagine.
