David would not prepare them to peak first day trip and he is a wonderful horse and really snug to experience–he skips over the bottom. Typically the dip right here can really feel like a roller-coaster, however on him it felt snug and usually a superb horse will get out and in of the dip simply right here. He ought to keep no less than 10 furlongs subsequent yr and if he stays a mile and a half it places him in one other stratosphere. I have been trying ahead to him operating for a month now and instructed my agent that wherever Money runs I am going there to experience him.”
