Before the end of the year you should:

1. Stretch him out.
B. Try the grass.

Not only are those general ideas for every horse, but yours in particular might have some turf ability in that pedigree. It couldn't hurt him, and going forward it can only toughen him up.

I'd also call it a year after start 6 or 7, and give him time off until February. He'll relish the vacation, and maturity should take care of the rest. I'm a proponent of the 5-race juvenile season, if you start early, because you don't want to overdo it and ruin him going forward by asking too much too often of him. There's time to try and make him a star, so don't rush him.

Good luck. You always remember your first, and usually your second comes along very quickly. Congrats!

My gut is to strike back while the iron is hot. Find another stakes race in 4-6 weeks for him and see if he can bag another victory. Extra rest is great if he turns out to improve as a 3-4 year old, however why wait when you know he can take down another 1-2 stakes races as a 2yo.

His dosage hints at him liking more distance, so testing him at a mile might be a good call too.

You could even give him a shot in a graded race, however his speed might not be quite enough yet at that level and you'd have better odds back in stakes. However you never know if he has more in the tank and might get you your first graded win.

Good Lick!

Yes. Early Speed : 60 Effort : 100

A very large % of my better horses with racing styles similar to yours improve when setting start speeds between 40 and 60.

And I have reconsidered my previous advice. Go ahead and try him in another stake or graded race.

You have done a fantastic job selecting races and spacing them out. Continued good luck!

Iā€™m not sure that I can quote and reply to you all at once...sooooo, THANK YOU!!!

I think I will try him once more this season in a stakes at a mile! I already set his early speed to 60 šŸ˜‰

Then what is better, send him to the farm until after the first of the year, or just let him sit but not in training?

Thank you guys again so so much for the advice!!

It makes absolutely no difference whether the horse is in active stable or at the farm. Farming may be cheaper or more more expensive depending on how many you have on the farm. The more horses, the higher the cost.

If you have others on the farm check their daily charge and decide accordingly. Otherwise, just leave him be.

Congrats, that is awesome!! Way to go! I'd be looking to run in a graded stakes at 8f+ to see if he is a Derby contender!
