Question
hello sir. can you guide me how to study the pedigree of a horse?

Answer
hi ----  well they have books on pedigrees on horses, so you could study them. remember that it is 60% on the studs side of the family and 50% on the mares side of the family when breeding a horse to race. you have to go back at least 3 generations to see how the prodigy is doing 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


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.
