Makes one think maybe they shouldn't post his every move and keep it kind of mum until he's actually at the track with whichever trainer he's gonna race for.

Don't see that as "fast". When we got yearlings from the farm (sometimes was the case that they started at the track), they generally accepted someone on their back pretty easily. And it's just hoping on in the stable for a moment first. Of course there are some that are a bit troublesome, but my guess is Coz is intelligent and learned already a lot from his mother (to trust humans etc) and might come after her character wise.

I was laughing at the Facebook comments. If you explain something to those people, they just cover their eyes and continue to go on with their drivel. I tried to explain to them now that they are not galloping him on the track and that he will just do nothing over the winter. I know that Warmbloods usually don't get breaks for half a year or so in training and have to carry the rider for a longer amount of time daily, maybe that's why they're going nuts. Although I guess my explanation will be in vain too.

thanks kurenai,
although I do ride and follow racing, I don't know much about training babies. it is interesting that most don't mind having a saddle and rider sitting on them early in their training. maybe i have watched too many cowboy movies!

So they can show up at the farm or call ad infinitum? They're sort of in a damned if you do, damned if you don't situation.

They complain when they get updates, and complain when they don't... I am with Tinny with no updates, but I have always been more of a schadenfreude.

Gotta love the Zetards, no? :roll: It'd be the same thing with Taco, if we had updates. Good for Stonestreet for keeping somewhat mum on the updates.

He looks great though. I can't wait to see him in 6 months to a year from now, as a 2yo training at the track. I want to see how big he'll get in that time.
