Well, he was faster than somebody :) In fairness to him, we had a really nice gelding - his 2yo season he was slower than a backwards donkey.. at the end they wondered if they should just rehome him as he was so slow. As luck would have it, they gave him another chance as a 3yo - he won a listed race and placed in a group. He went on to be sold to Dubai for a pretty penny; where he finished out his career before being rehomed to his original stable lass. Sometimes they just need that bit more time :)
Stop for a minute, open your mind, learn. You may not agree with what I say, I may not agree with what you say but we will both learn something new.
