Question
hello sir, how to spot a horse running on its own watching the race (excluding straight tail)?

Answer
HI -- YOU CAN JUST TELL HOW MUCH EFFORT THE HORSES ARE PUTTING OUT BY WATCHING THEIR GATES AND ACTION.YOU CAN ALSO TELL WHERE THEY ARE FAVORING THEMSELVES IN A RACE. IT TAKES YEARS TO LOOK AT A HORSE AND TELL IF HE IS GOING WELL OR NOT AND WHERE TO PIN POINT ANY PROBLEMS THEY MAY BE SHOWING YOU WHILE TRAINING.  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.
