Long Hard Pull
Graduation day arrived at El Primero Racehorse Education Center. No caps and gowns, no speeches, no celebration outside the Laredo TX facility. Simply time to go to Canterbury Park. Since last September, ten months in the making, days of ground work and schooling, countless laps around the training track, growing and learning, preparing to race, and becoming a professional. The first race will probably be a 5/8 of a mile contest the first weekend in July. Just another 1400 miles to go. It's a long hard pull from the training center to the racetrack.
