Flint already thinking Oaks for Seaneen Girl
"I'll stay around as long as I want to do it and having a good one like her makes you want to stay in the game," he remarked. "It gives you something to live for. I've been doing this all my life and you look for those kind and they don't come around easily."
Flint said Seaneen Girl, a two-year-old chestnut daughter of Spring at Last, exited the Golden Rod in fine form.
"She's doing great and she ate up everything," the horseman said. "We'll take her to the Fair Grounds and look at the Silverbulletday (on January 19), but if we have to ship, we'll ship. She's at the top of her game."
Seaneen Girl defeated favored Gal About Town in the Golden Rod and she could face that filly again if she does run in the Silverbulletday.
"She came out of the race good," trainer Bret Calhoun said of the chestnut daughter of City Zip. "She ran well, but we're disappointed she didn't win. She'll leave for the Fair Grounds on Monday and the Silverbulletday will most likely be her next start."
Gal About Town will be joined on the trip to New Orleans by Tour Guide, who won Saturday's 7TH race by 4 1/2 lengths.
"We've always liked this horse and he ran very well," Calhoun said. "He'll come to the Fair Grounds, but I'm not sure what we'll do with him yet."
