As it turns out, Asgoodasioncewas made his final start when he finished third at Cal Expo on March 25, and is now ready to move on to the next phase of his life.

Asgoodasioncewas is an 11-year-old Kentucky-bred son of Jennas Beach Boy out of the Abercrombie mare Adjust My Halo. He most recently went about his business for owner Scott Ehrlich and driver/trainer Steve Wiseman.

When all was said and done on the racetrack, Asgoodasioncewas had $114,000 in his bank account and a 1:55 lifetime standard that was established back in 2009.

“After just missing second, Asgoodasioncewas came up sore two days later. We had our vet, David Valcheck, check/x-ray him the following day and he showed some physical issues,” Ehrlich explained.

“After discussing these issues with Steve, his wife Kathie and David, and considering his age and what the future of racing held for him, we decided that the old guy would call it a career.

“With roughly 30-60 days rest, he’ll be good to go as a trail riding horse. He is a very sweet horse, who loves donuts by the way, and I’d be more than happy to give him to someone who will provide him with a loving home for what is hopefully a long life.”

My Little Susie, who already has three stakes trophies this season, will get the marquee treatment in Sunday evening’s featured $10,000 California Sire Stakes for three-year-old trotters.

Also, congratulations are in order for James Kennedy, who recorded the 1,000th win of his career when he guided Lincoln to victory in last Saturday night at Cal Expo.
