Question
confirmation of this yearling
confirmation of this y  
hello sir, can you judge and tell me the confirmation of this yearling?

Answer
hi -- it looks pretty good. high in the back end for power. straight in the front. looks like a 45 degree pastern front and back legs.  looks like the knees are closed up. can't see how wide it's throat is underneath the jaw. that would be very wide for good wind. overall I would say that this yearling would make a good race horse. 2 yr old racing sometimes cuts a horses career short as people tend to run the horses too young and un developed. don't give them time to grow up and mature before they race them.. 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.
