I am surprised at you Heidi??????? I would have expected more from
someone who states that they have around (practiced on the track) and
understands the racetrack vernacular. One that knows the business knows
that only healthy horses win (make money for their owners) and that
unhealthy horses only cost their owners money. According to class of the
horse and where he/she is running can a horse win if they are below
100%. Tom didn't say what class this horse was in or what class they
expected him/her to be racing in.If this horse is an allowance horse and
is running for 10K claiming then he/she needs to be fixed,but if the
horse is an allowance horse and is winning in allowance company
,,,,,,what are you going to fix!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
