Dan, I always wondered if horses that are stabled at the track have an advantage over horses who van in. Wouldn't a long van ride traumatize a horse?

I had my best years from 1985 thru 1989 when we owned our farm. In my opinion horses are way better off on the farm then at the track. Some horses may be bad shippers but most don't mind it at all.

    Some guys like Harmer perfer the track and have done super well. But remember Harmer has always had the entire barn for himself and that makes a difference too when other stables don't share your barm. I'll take the farm over the track anyday of the week.

thats why a lot of people that claim off hillbilly farmers and then take them to the track dont usually do the greatest  and the same goes the other way a lot of times when u take a horse that has been at maywood in the stall all the time to be being on the country side turned out you can in a lot of cases really improve one

Thanks Dan, for some reason I thought some horses had a so called home track advantage by staying there.
