    Also, both Tri Jet and Alydar are nice to see for sport horses and they're not too far back in his pedigree. He looks like a nice individual.

    Couldn't agree more with your entire post. I bolded your comment about jump racing because I think many people don't realize the talent and athleticism of timber and hurdle horses. If you want to...

    I think what the op is seeing is a tiny bit of natural loft which can be developed down the road. Also, this horse is very rhythmic which allows us to see the loft more easily at this stage in his...

    I think it's always worth asking the trainer why a horse priced competitively has preformed poorly at competitions. A million things can go right and a million things can go wrong, especially if the...
