What do you all think as far as claiming a horse you once had back.  Even if it means giving more for the horse than you lost it for???

If you want to claim him back, you must have had success with him.  Careful now, you may not be that lucky "chasing" him.  Sort of like buying back a stock at a higher price.  It has to be in your makeup to be able to live with that decision if you get clobbered the 2nd time around.  Usually doesn't work out.

(I hope you're not Nick Clegg thinking of claiming back Western Leader. Undecided)

Rick:

I agree, particularly at tracks with big purses like the Meadowlands or Dover. the couple of thousand more you might spend on taking the horse back can easily be recaptured in one start.

You know, I do agree with that - but only at the more lucrative tracks.  I actually assumed he was referring to Chicago but you know what happens when you assume...
