UNIONVILLE, Pa.--Ricky Hendriks saddled Be the Boss to win a $32,040 Maiden Special Weight at Presque Isle on June 6.
Be the Boss runs in the name of Debra Kachel but is actually owned by Kachel and Ricky and Wendy Hendriks.
"I bought him at the Timonium December mixed sale," said Wendy. "He was owned by Kurt Weikopf. He said he named the horse after his wife. I thought that was amusing. We ran him at Penn National in January, and he was second, then we ran him at Parx in late January. The track was deep, and he didn't like it and ran badly."
"We took him home and gelded him," said Wendy. Ricky has his barn in Unionville. "Then we ran him at Belmont in May ,and he was third, and the he won at Presque Isle. He's running back in an allowance optional claiming on the turf at Delaware Park on Thursday."
Be the Boss was bought from the consignment on Marshall Silverman for $38,000.
