Horse Racing/long barrel


hello sir, are horses with long barrel good for breeding irrespective of their gender?

hi---- for breeding, I always go with the best conformation on the mare and stud. remember that it is 60% on the mares side of the family in conformation and 40% of conformation on the studs side of the family, so plan on the best conformation on both sides of the family.. 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: 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.
