I take it that they gave up on him? Only two workouts in the last two months.

Let's hope so. He isn't going to win a race that they'll enter him in.

Maybe they decided to give him a break or to geld him? I mean I know he has barely raced but he has been in constant training since he was 2.

Maybe, but I'd be surprised if they give up on him after two races, one of which was on Big Sandy. Let's see if he resurfaces with a work on or about 8/10, since that seems to be the pattern.

If there is a glimmer of hope for this horse, a new trainer is in order. Maybe it's too late.

They won't know unless they do try another trainer.

Or try an actual race. I believe he's had 23094802938509832084023984 consecutive works since he last ran in July 2015.

I know the Mosses aren't hurting for money, but aren't they spending a small fortune in training and other fees on these boys with very little return?

I think that is all owners who have horses with John Shirreffs because he is definitely in a slump and has been for awhile. He hasn't won a G1 since 2011 and only has 2 G2 wins and 2 G3 wins from 2013 to present(and 2 of those were in 2013. he didn't win a graded stakes in 2015). But a trainer can only work with what he has in his stable. I don't know if Cozmic One and Ziconic would do better in another barn, but they aren't doing well where they are and I think a trainer change is needed. Maybe the Mosses feel its not right to do that to a trainer who has done very well for them in the past.

Then maybe everybody has to wait for Shireffs to suggest a change of trainer?
