What should Rich Strike stand for and can continue to race him devalue his potential stud fee?
Running fillies against colts is a bit more controversial here in the US as opposed to other parts of the world. Hear from Michael as an ex trainer on whether it is a good or bad thing and if it has any disadvantages or advantages. Jon weighs in with his thoughts as a student of the game and also a bettor on how he viewed it in the past and how he views it now and what changed his opinion.
Horses make trainers, and trainers make riders. Michael and Jon discuss the white hot Flavien Prat and what it takes to get a rider “in that groove” and what happens once they are there. How do you stay there and what impact does it have on your daily mounts. Even more interesting Michael and Jon go into just how much difference there is or isn’t between riders at the elite level and their opinion might surprise you.
