Question
hello sir, do horses get struck by colic and laminitis all of a sudden while running in the race?

Answer
hi --i know horses to get colic after a race or before a race. LAMINITIS comes on quickly for most any reason though. most founder comes from improper cooling out of the horse with too much water too fast after a hard workout or a race. 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.
