Can someone tell me about this one's racing career?
Wow, what a pedigree he had. St Simon, Domino, Broomstick, Colin, Fair Play, etc.

  • rafirox · Yes it did, he trained several champions for Calumet. I'm not sure how/why the strategy changed of how to train a horse. The average schedule for a racehorse nowadays is: Workouts every week, and a race every four-six weeks. Buckpasser, is it not ideal to work them past a half mile? · 849 days ago
  • buckpasser · Ben Jones didn't think so. And Johnny Nerud quoted Jones' advice as something he followed. I always think this four to six week schedule had a lot to do with Michael Matz and other trainers like him. I always remember Allen Jerkens saying that most owners would be up in arms at how much their horses should be raced. Most horses in the 60s and 70s would race every couple of weeks in either a stakes, allowance etc. Kelso certainly kept this type of schedule as did many others. But you need to remember that most of these horses had the winter off and returned to the races in March. It was in the 70's with the advent of OTB in NY tht you have year round racing. · 849 days ago

  • cocoa2 · buckpasser, the most neat part I think about his pedigree is how he has Domino on top and St. Simon on the bottom. Rivalry in the pedigree. · 1052 days ago
  • buckpasser · It is neat. Alsab was sold for about $700 or $800. He is in the pedigree on the dam side of Seattle Slew through his daughter Myrtle Charm. He also sired Armaggedon who is in the sire line of Battle Joined who sired Ack Ack. · 1052 days ago
Does anyone know what Alsab's silks look like? I'm working on a project and want to put a picture of his silks, however I can't find them anywhere. It's hard to tell from the video since its so grainy, but they look white to me. If anyone knows what they look like or where I could find a picture of them could you please let me know. Thanks!
Great battles with Shut Out during 1942 campaign!
