Question
hello, may i know how to judge a horse that requires BLINKERS to win the race?

Answer
hi -- well you need to train the horse with the blinkers on for a few weeks to get them use to them. you also need to work the horse from the gate a few times to see how they handle the change. if all works well then put them in a race and go from there. thanks ED HESS

Have trained thoroughbreds for 30 odd years. Have been a licensed trainer for that long of time. I continue to train my race horses and thoroughly enjoy every day.

Experience


Experience: Licensed trainer for over 30 yrs. Have had lots of winners in all different types of races - from bottom claimers to top quality stakes winners. My best money winner was Aristocratic Cross (multiple stakes winner). My best claiming horse was Navajo Family, winner of 12 races in one year. I still enjoy racing a modest stable of horses each year.
