Question
hello sir. what precautions should be taken to in advance so that my horse doesnt turn into a ROARER?

Answer
HI WELL CHECKS BY YOUR VET TO AMKE SURE THE AIR PASSAGED ARE CLEAR AND NO SIGNS OF INFECTIONS OF ANY TYPE. ALWAYS MAKE SURE THE HORSE IS DEAD FIT BEFORE MAKING HIM WORK OR RACE. UNFIT HORSES CAN BECOME PRONE TO ALL OF THESE TYPES OF BREATHING PROBLEMS. TOUNGE TIES ALSO USUALLY HELP IN THOSE BREATHING PROBLEMS.  THANKS  ed hess

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.
