Have trained thoroughbreds for 30 odd years. Have been a licensed trainer for that long of time. I continue to train my race horses and thoroughly enjoy every day.

Experience in the area

Experience: Licensed trainer for over 30 yrs. Have had lots of winners in all different types of races - from bottom claimers to top quality stakes winners. My best money winner was Aristocratic Cross (multiple stakes winner). My best claiming horse was Navajo Family, winner of 12 races in one year. I still enjoy racing a modest stable of horses each year.

What do you like about this subject?

I love horses of all kinds. I will always ejnoy getting up early and going to work to see what kind of adventure is in store for me. Every horse is an individual. You need to discover each horse's personality in order to train them correctly.

What do you still hope to achieve/learn in this field?

I do beleive I have achieved everything I can imagine to do except win the Kentucky Derby.

Something interesting about this subject that others may not know:

In my 30 yr career, I've come up with many so called special talents of leg care, training methods, and special one-of-a-kind remedies that only I know.

Something controversial or provocative about this subject

I do beleive that you have to have a special something, in order to do this type of work. This job is a 24 hr a day commitment on your part, and in order to make good, you have to be able to meet any emergency that may arise.
