I agree with Vic. Even the best trainers are not sure of their charges the first time out regardless of the works. Besides it is questionable whether or not to race 2yo's anyway. The trainers argue it's a matter of economics. But that still does not make it humane. I for one do not condone it. Good luck anyway!!!
PURE guesswork to suggest you can figure out which baby will adapt to the noise and commotion the first time they race. These youngsters have learned their lessons in isolation, running at most with another horse near them and have never experienced the cavalry charge of a field of inexperienced animals, MOSTLY thundering out of control, the first time they run for real. Cost of baby as a criteria? I only have to point out about 50 who failed starting with the awfully named The Green Monkey. John Henry and Slew ran home their first starts and were cheapies. Dozens with the high price tag run everyday at levels of 3 y/o and up maiden special weights. Watch the race or throw a dart. The latter is just about as logical as any other method
