Unless you're already part of the racing industry, it's unlikely you can train your own foal to be a successful racehorse.

He'd need a professional trainer, groom, exercise rider, and jockey. Do you have the money for all of those, and to send him to a racing stable?

By sending him to the trainer. However I'd suggest to wait till he's at least 3 - then he'll stay healthy longer.

Are you asking so you know how they train them for when you send him to a racing stable or are you asking so you can train him yourself?

passion is when you put more energy into something than is required to do it. it is more than just enthusiasm or excitement, passion is ambition that is materialized into action to put as much heart, mind, body and soul into something as is possible. // <3 starlite - dream - lady - georgia

No. I'm not a race trainer.

If you're serious about your horse's chances, you'll need to cough up money to send him somewhere to be trained properly. If you think you can do it yourself on a shoestring and without help, you're sadly mistaken.

I don't, but we have a former jockey as a neighbor, who breeds and races TBs (have nice blood lines). He with all his knowledge sends his youngsters to the trainer on track (LOTS and LOTS of money, BTW, per his words).

Kitten, not to put too fine of a point on it, but I think the OP is probably very young and has Black Stallion Syndrome.

I noticed they posted on another thread, stating they have a Bashkir Curly. I wonder how many other threads on which they're going to post, stating they also have that particular breed.

I'm beginning to have a niggle of doubt that this person owns even one horse, much less several.

Very well may be. I have dreams too (like kicking bums on my qh in dressage arena ).

ILOVETOBY, if you have a race track in area I'd recommend to go there and talk and see what's going on, may be even ask if there is any work you can do/help with. Also you may want to read and learn more about racing before pushing your horse into that. Lots of young horses break on tracks.
