My horse hates every kind of equipment ;)
« on: February 13, 2016, 06:15:05 am »
I have this filly Ch. Lointaine who seems to like every running style; as the jockey keeps suggesting different styles all the time, so I eventually changed the instructions back to "let the jockey decide". At the same time, the filly hates every kind of equipment ::)

W - hates
F8 - dislikes, hates (5 starts, placed)
F8 NW - hates
B - dislikes (3 starts, stakes placed)
no equipment - dislikes (4 starts, stakes placed)
SR - dislikes, hates (15 starts, 3 wins, stakes placed)

B SR - no comment (1 start, placed)
SR W - no comment (1 start, placed)

I wanted to race her in wraps next time, but today the jockey said that she hates them! So maybe blinkers and shadow roll? The filly certainly has a lot of personality!

At least she does well despite her dislike of gear. ;)

Not sure where to post this, but checking yesterday's workouts and the top line read.
12/31/20   All That Appeal   J. Heywood   100%   Australia (Good - Dirt)   B   Walk - 1/2 mile   --   --   All That Appeal seems to like runn

He shouldn't have worked cause he's off schedule and entered to race this week. The date is clearly wrong so assume it's an error
