Do many trainers still use double headers ,or do they now train more for speed than stamina ?

Mr. cpr,
I am a little curious.
You have asked three questions before, and you have in return  gotten some good answers, but you never return a reply.
Not even a yes, no, thank you, or go to hell from you.  Why not at least an acknowledgement that someone cared enough to give you an answer?

IMHO
A little interaction on your part may get you the answers you seek.

i think time has passed the double headers by....maybe more on the side of time restaints.  many guys now days go straight mile and half   say a half in 30 half in 20 half in 10  and thats it  usually on a double header you come back with a fast single  hopwe this helps....just remember  if its a good horse you can train him anyway you want ..he ll still be a good horse

Ah Yes!    Double headers  thumbs up
I remember them well!
Afternoon double headers the best.
The joys of youth!

Home from the track,after the morning training.
A quick fast first heat.
A cool down dip in the pool followed by a little lunch.
A second slow endurance heat followed by a little nap.
Then up for a light supper and  back to the track for a night of racing.

 thumbs up thumbs up thumbs up
Dam this old age.
What we use to do all afternoon now takes us all afternoon to do.
