Question
hello sir, may i know how can one get to know that a horse requires blinkers to run in the race?

Answer
HI  WITH EVERY DAY TRAINING YOU SHOULD SEE IF THE HORSE NEEDS BLINKERS IN ORDER TO RACE. SOME HORSE WILL SUCK BACK OUT OF THE GATE IN CLOSE QUARTERS THEN YOU SHOULD TRY BLINKERS. BLINKERS WILL HELP GET A HORSE OUT OF THE GATE ON TIME. JUST TRY BLINKERS ANYHOW THAT WAY YOU WILL KNOW IF THEY NEED THEM  OR NOT 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.
