Update to Original Post
Braonach seem to race well tonight watching the live feed. She came in 5th, So that a small check to go towards her expenses. Looking at the live feed she seem to got behind a slower horse and had to race outside to keep from losing ground. Racing outside mean moving away from the rail which adds distance that the horse has to cover. She closed well and was just a nose shy of 4th and only a little off third.
This weekend at Grand Rivers my 1% horse Braonach will be racing in the 9th race. She pulled the 9 hole. Below is the current stats for Grand River starting positions. As you can see post 9 is not all that great, but it is not the worst place to be.

Race 9 Selections 3-9-6-4
3 CRAIGMORE CHRISTY has been first or second in
four of her last five assignments for trainer Brealey.
She gets a great post to work from tonight. Top call.
9 BRAONACH rallied to grab the show dough in his
latest outing for trainer MacDonald. Exactor factor.
6 CASIMIR Q T drops in with easier company this
time around, and that should lead to improvement.
The item above is from the race program for the race. The track handicapper likes her for second place even considering the outside starting post. Graigmore Christy is the tracks pick to win the race. It is easy to see why, 1st or 2nd in 4 of 5 starts is impressive. Her last race she won wire to wire from the one hole. Braonach was in that race and finished third. however, it is interesting to note that while Graigmore Christy gained of the field over all she did not gain on Braonach in the last half. so it should be an interesting race. you can see that race on the Grand river website. Select Aug 11 and then when the races come up select race three. That same link will let you watch the race live, just select the live button or if you miss the race select the replay.
