What the Horse Racing Nation is saying about Mabou...

A modern rarity occurred yesterday at Saratoga when Mabou, a steeplechase horse, was claimed for $30,000 out a fifth-place finish in the second race, a 2 1/16-mile optional claimer over hurdles.   Claims clerk Eric Friedman said no horse has been claimed out of a steeplechase race in his five y...Read More
  • travel_vic · This week out director took time off and in his palce is a nive lady who works in the Attard barn. She had been working around the back side for many years, her favorite was one called Rainbow Connection, so I spoke with here about all the changes that must occur whenever a new claimed animal comes into their stable. "We must take our best guess as to what we are going to get based upon what we know about the normal modus operandi of the barn it was claimed from...We know lots in general (how they exercise in gneral, feed in general, their staff etc.) but the SPECIFICS of any horse (as they are all individuals) is COMPLETELY UNKOWN. We don't know if they will eat our table diet and many sulk with the change, miss work time, and it takes a few weeks to find that magic formulation that works. Old injuries are suggested by observation at a distance, but unless you are UNDER this animal or are the recipent of a vet's exam, you do not know. INDIVIDUAL habits (after all you are claiming someone else's problem which they offered for sale) are the real unkonws: did we claim a cribber, or a stall walker, is this one real nervous and a finnicky eater that is going to wind up wasp wasted and weak or will she eat like a pig?). I asked, don't you make it a habit to discuss these things with the trainer when youtake posssession of the horse in the paddock? The only thing you hear are the grooms comments, but little else so we have to take out best guess. Usually the claim is made as regards a situation that the receiving trainer thinks can be remedied, but there are LOTS of bad claims on horses that are complete surprises to us and do not work out..Whoever told you that caliming improves the animal just does not know what we don't know..It is a guessing game: when it works out you tend to remember it better than all those times that it does not. . · 252 days ago ·
