We’re always at the sale, every sale, all of the time. For the 2-year-old in-training sales our team is on hand meticulously covering every aspect of each horse’s breeze. We strategically place members of our team in the chute, in the lane, and in the turn. We watch the manner in which the horse comes onto the track and approaches the pole, how it moves and is handled throughout its work, and, most importantly, how it finishes. We time the horse’s gallop-out 1/8 and 1/4 past the wire and we listen to its breathing and for any noises. Finally we grade the gallop-out from A-F and then we apply an inclusive A-F grade to the overall work.
Do not go into the sales ring unprepared.
