I wonder what's up with that claim of 11-y-o Jonny's Choice. Owner/trainer Beverly J. Hamilton put in the claim at Turf Paradise about a week ago, yet Equibase shows her last sending out a starter in 2018 at Portland Meadows. Strange that she'd be claiming such a horse to restart her racing career. Maybe claiming to retire?

Fun fact: That TuP race was written for 9-year-olds and up! They used to run those at old Lincoln Downs in Rhode Island in the '70s.
Jonny's Choice is entered in Race 1 at Turf Paradise this Sunday (2/16) under Beverly Hamilton, so apparently she's back in business. Must have a soft spot for Jonny. Best of luck to the both of them!

Maybe they wanted to give him one last run and now he's retired.

He's entered again at Turf Paradise this coming Wednesday (2/26) in Race 7 - $8,500 claimer - running against another War Horse, Dreamcatcher(Tapit) - one of the better seniors on the track. I realize that he's 11 now, but he did have an extraordinarily good season as a 10yo (13 races and hit the board in all but one) and my guess is that she keeps him going for a while - just throws that last race out and sees if he can have a rejuvenation of the sap.
