Question
hello sir, for a poor performer, one of our trainers at our local racetrack feeds four raw eggs and milk daily till 10 days. within 40 days there was drastic improvement in that horse. is it good to feed raw eggs and milk to poor performer?

Answer
hi -- I have never heard of that before, but each trainer has his or hers own ideas on how and what to do with their horses. I am sure that there are vitamins etc in the eggs and milk so that would affect a horse in some way.  some trainers feed stout in the feed. 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.
