Hope enjoyed a working stay-cation at Margaux Farm this winter. She took December off and resumed training in January.
Her half sibling Uphold, a 2 yr old colt, started light training as well, but went through a few fast and furious growth spurts after the first of the year and was afforded time off in January and February. Margaux is being patient and cautious in his training and for that I am grateful. Mentally, he wants to run, but his body needs more time to mature. He will either start late in the fall or next Spring. Good things come to those who wait! Big Sis Hope will just have to support her younger brother and keep shoes on him until his maiden debut. 🙂 Below are pictures taken of Hope.
