as always; a pre-vet exame is always a necessity. A good vet will do the trick and a very careful eye when inspecting horses is also a must. if you do the PPE; it will turn up what you're looking for in a horse. As for shopping for racehorses; most of the horses are not owned by the trainer; they are the trainer and caretaker of the horse and they are paid by the owners to handle situations from buying to selling them. Hope he finds a good home

You are correct Daisy Cutter...and any trainer who is completely on the Up and Up will have you speak directly with the owner and write check to owner...I bought a mare yesterday and that was how we worked it....I bought a horse from a assistant to a Big Time trainer...wrote the check to him...got 1/2 way home...Big Name trainer on phone...cancell that check, the horse was "FREE" assistant didn't own him, Owner didn't give him to assistant, and Assistant had no business selling horse..He was Free to a Good home, and owner was to be notified..I kept horse, stopped check assistant lost job!!!
So please read the other COTH threads...horse needs a soft landing but not from this guy....
My friend looked it up earlier. I sent her the link and she said her boyfriend was his jock at Laurel in 2010. Small world. Some guy named Gambor had him and from her text it looks like Bliss bought him but never ran him for whatever reason. He hasn't run since August. 28 total starts (this may be in the link, I didn't check)
