I'm quite literate, but thanks for asking.  My interpretation of 'basic
condition' goes beyond simply cardiovascular, which is a piece of cake to
attain compared to bone, tendon and ligament.  Done correctly, good arena
work, and access to a a very short stretch of hard ground can and will
condition a horse *physically* (though not mentally or experience-wise) for
a completion-speed 50.  Seen it done, done it myself.

And since my brother is an ex-NBA center, I'm pretty familiar with what it
takes to make one of those as well.
