I see great things in the future for this colt
It's great to see a humble guy like Paisley and his daughter get one like this at his age.

  Great things?  really?  He's only gotta drop 4+ seconds to be considered a stakes colt  screwy

Really Pius, have you not seen his miles? The way he was driven last night he could have won at will at any point.  Marcus kept him out of trouble as he leader looked good on the lead, once he was let go he exploded home.  Looks like he will make a lot money.

i dont know who you are and i rarely deny anyone an opinion, but if you don't see this is a special colt, you dont know much about horses or what youre lookin at.

theyve taught this colt the correct thing, come off the gate, relax, follow cover and sprint to the wire.

if this colt was raced at the meadowlands and the half went in 56 or 57 he'd trot in 54 or 55 right now.

bye the way, the hambo is at the meadowlands and that's not out of the question right now....and he's eligible. he needs to stay sound and some luck but he could be a top top colt

  When he whips up on 'em in .53 I'll agree he is special.  I won't specualte on miles ha has not yet gone.  I leave that to others.

As always thanks Buggyboy for reading all my posts and respoding to them.
The horse is already a multiple wining stakes colt.

he's had 5 lifetime starts. walt lives in ill. the colt is ill. bred and eligible fot ill. bred races. goes for 40k in 2 weeks. where and in what races would a genious like you race him Huh do you think paisley knows a few things about race horses ?

if he keeps going,and if he stays sound, he's got the american national and a few other big money stakes and then if he's good enough (and he may be) the hambo in august.

Are you saying Riccolo is not potentially a nice horse like you said about Gibbs who is also racing at Balmoral ?

calm down all you Windy City sensitive types

my point was --if the horse was considered "good" --he wouldnt be racing @ Balmoral--he would have been sent east to a real trainer for a real campaign vs other east coast horses

that fact that he is an Illinois bred killed those chances before the horse was born

sorry--if you have a good horse--you dont race @ Balmoral for $6k purses--Grand Circuit stuff is another story--but those purses @ Maywood and Balmoral wont even pay your feed bill

Riccolo is a very nice and very well bred horse not because of sire but the
dam has some interesting breeding.  Walter so far on the caution side with
his horse after a injury last year.  Seems to be fine always the next day or
two after the race.  As far as dropping 3 seconds he trotted last week in
56.1 not sure any 3 yr colts are racing in 53.1 yet been watching the PA
circuit since I have a 3 yr old colt racing out there and will be sire stake race
at Chester next Friday.  We will get a gauge on were there are time wise.
Right he won't have to prove much here in Illinois because there are very
few good Ill trotters so fractions will be soft and Riccolo will win majority
of those races as long as he is sound.  He is a good colt and if Walter
paid the May payment for the Hambo we might see how much of a good colt
he really is.

How fast do you want this 3 yr old to trot in he was hurt in his
3rd start at 1-5 at 2 after trotting in 58.3 second time out.
After 3 starts this year in 56.1 and 57.1 nice last quarters
coming home off the pace I would take him in a second.

  A 12k stake last out?  wow  I can see him winning the Futurity already.  This puts me on the same page as everybody else.  I'll check back with everybody on this.,.trust me.

Simillar comments were made about Kadabra early on in his career.

so far we have seen Googoogaagaa do a 53.3 mile on the 5/8ths and the Simpson is this weekend

most of the top Hambletoian intended trotters dont race until the NJSS races or NYSS in late May , early June--so here ont he east coast there arent nay 3yo trot events available--unless you wanna face older just to get races in

i said nothing disparaging about the times--just about where he is racing--i am well aware that midwestern connections like the Ackermans usually have a Hambletonian prospect almost yearly

but if you are this good--you dont start racing in March or April
