MTR is getting a bit of seconditis. James Aloysius, Consumer Spending, and Bubble Rock were not able to close the deal in their debuts. Hopefully, each will move forward to become stakes performers!

RAESFAN said...

I chose the wrong Asmussen. I should have known to pick the Tapit.

I just don't follow his horses anymore until the last minute.  He's got so many barns in so many places and races at so many tracks.....NY, Chicago, KY, TX, Lousiana, Arkansas.....must be at least 250 horses  or more?  

1,613 starts in 2021 or something like that......I know they're not all 3 year olds but still....18,560,649 earnings in 2021 alone.  

For comparison, somebody like Mandella trains around 40 or so.   Shug around 80.  

Its gotten out of hand for me in many ways.

Pletcher and Baffert also have a lot of horses. No way they can manage all of them. They obviously have people responsible for the day to day operations, but they get the lion’s share of the accolades and the compensation!

Most of those decisions are financial......it makes it possible to have the large staff, the premium stables at the top tracks, and the services of the best jocks.  In addition, if you have a large number of 2 yr. old colts and fillies, the chances are much better that one of them can become great.

It's a little like the mom 'n pop stores vs. the chains.....many people may prefer to see the smaller barns flourish, yet they may also shop at Costco
