QUESTION: sir, can you please explain me in detial how you are judging the pedigree of this filly?

Answer
HI WEEL YOU HAVE LOTS OF STAKES WINNERS IN HER PEDIGRE, SO I WOULD IMANGE THAT SHE WILL LIVE UP TO HER RELATIVES PAST  HISTORY. ALWAYS REMEMBER THAT EVERY HORSE IS DIFFERENT AND THAT THEY WILL MAKE THEIR OWN WAY WHEN THEY START TO RACE. ALSO YOU HAVE TO WAIT AND SEE HOW SOUND THE HORSE STAYS WHEN RACING.  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.
