Question
hello sir, should colts with lot of aggression get gelded?

Answer
HI --- ONLY IF YOU CANNOT HANDLE THEM IN MOST SITUATIONS THAT YOU DO WITH THEM.  REMEMBER THAT COLTS ARE ALWAYS FEELING GOOD AND WILL USUALLY GIVE YOU SOME PROBLEMS IN TRAINING, BUT IF THEY ARE VERY NASTY AND UNCONTROLLABLE  THEN I WOULD GELD 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.
