I was looking at your profile to see if there is a link to your racing stable or farm. I was hoping to see some of yours or your trainer successes.

Could you provide a link so we can view ?

Have your trainer with you every step of the way. However much you think you know, there will always be someone out there who knows something more than you. Talk to as many people as possible. There will always be people who will want to talk.

Just a side note, there was a man who came to my work often. He and his wife raised and trained Racers as a hobby of all things. He was telling me about a filly that they never had time for. She didn't get started until she was 4 and he said that she had the best runs out of any of his horses.

I don't own a racing stable. We have a family run racing buissness and we board our horses with our trainers. We have had horses that have been invited to England to race. But unforchunatly the horse had a leg problem before we could ship him over(he's the dad). Our trainers are Bob Houlthus and Grant something. Our horses have kind of raced all over the country and we acctually have ok stock. We have an upcoming 2 year old and two upcomming fillies. The mare that is going to foal is Ariel. or Air Heir.

I also grew up on a track, and that makes me want to see a horse not started till 3 even more. I'd rather have a long term sound horse than a money-earner that breaks down.

(And that is not supposed to be an insult to you or anything, just my opinion)

There is no training a horse to be TB, they either are a Thoroughbred or they are not. Just because a horse has parents that could route doesn't mean the ofspring will route, they may be sprinters. And if they are going to run a route, they all start with shorter races. You can't get a horse properly fit for a mile+ race for its first race, and even if you could, that's a long time to be focused on something they have never done for a baby.
