If there training at the track I can't believe a trainer could afford to train fore less than 30.00/ day.  I'm considering all expenses expect major vet bills.  I guess if a trainer was  really cheap, a trained could do it for 20.00/day.

I am thinking that in Chicago the price is around 30 to 40 a day.
Out East it is closer to 45 to 60 a day.
It depends on the trainer.

I'm sure that is without all the added goodies, like shoes, vet, lasix, shipping and some even charge for equipment. When they get done with you your ass will whistle in the wind.

Keep in mind the cost of everything in NJ is significantly higher.

Such as:

Hay...$12 per bale
Straw...$8 per bale
Bag of grain...$10 to $16
Insurance rates are higher

That would be WITHOUT vet bills, shoeing, shipping, stall rent, win bonus for the groom, possibly some equipment.

       Your off-stride again. Did you see how many horses got claimed at the BIG-M this week?? Well go look before you make ANOTHER DUMB POST. NJ owners are alive and well and are claiming and buying horses left & right. You see that's where the  dollar dollar dollar dollar is.

I was charging $33/ day back in 1999.  How do these trainers make it 6 years later on $30 / day?  Trucks are more expensive.  Grain is more.  I assume vets and blacksmiths are more.  The whole thing stinks!
