Castle Village Farm’s four-year-old gelding Talking Blues returned to the race track last week from a well-deserved vacation. Trainer Bruce Brown reports that Talking Blues is in excellent shape for a horse coming back from the farm, and that he hopes to have our horse ready to race sometime in the second half of the Saratoga meet.
Talking Blues, a gray New York-bred by Silver Music that we purchased as a yearling at Saratoga, won his maiden on New Year’s day this year. Â After one more race, he started showing some signs of tiredness; he’d been at the race track for well over a year with no time off. So we sent him out to Dave and James Rintoul’s farm on eastern Long Island, where he enjoyed some well-deserved R&R. We’re delighted to have him back in training.
