    Heh, yes I know there are a million variables! Let's say respectable dressage but not a world beater, outside area 2. Since there is never a perfect vetting, maybe some track wear, but vet still...

    What I don't understand is why things can't be a bit more transparent. No, I don't need to know the health particulars, but why can't we know the long term goal for Reggie, for example? How did...
