Questions / Re: Training comments and tips
« on: July 28, 2017, 12:47:31 AM »
Well, I can give you my advice, though I'm sure there are much more successful stables who could help you more.

As far as the training comments go, "very well mannered" usually just means the horse behaves itself and does what the jockey wants it to (a.k.a. it's not being a brat). Your natural energy comments usually start appearing when the horse is running low/tanking on NE (comments such as "looks lackluster" or "refuses to run"; if the horse dumps a bucket on the jockey's head, it means he/she is utterly spent). Bear in mind, however, that a jockey's comments are only as valuable as the jockey's familiarity with the horse. I usually don't pay too much attention to a jockey's comments unless he/she knows the horse "like the back of my hand." The exception to that rule would be the NE comments. Those are usually very accurate.

In terms of training schedule, that highly depends on the person. Everyone has their own style. For me, I train most of my horses about 4 times a week, mixing distance and intensity (i.e. walking vs. breeze) each day. Training is most helpful for getting to know an unfamiliar horse. My horses who have a familiar jockey, equipment they like, and who are in good shape don't get workouts very often, unless I'm trying to familiarize them with other jockeys as a sort of back-up in case their first pick in a race gets rolled to another horse.

I, personally, prefer to give my horses the day off before their race, to make sure their energy is as high as possible. Other than that, pretty much any day is fair game. Don't forget, though, that each time you train your horse, that training wears away at their NE, more than if they just had the day off. It works out fine for me, since I tend to race my horses pretty close to home. I just ship them back for a week or so every few months. For horses racing further away, this could become more tricky.

Anyway, those are the basics. Hope they help!
