Updates – Winters Calling

May 10th, 2019
He has shown a lot of promise in his prep so far. He ran 2nd in his barrier trial a few weeks ago and went a little shin-sore thereafter, but shook that off within a few days. He is coming along very nicely and we expect him to progress quickly after his debut.

He has done very well during the spring and has matured into the young two year old colt we were hoping for. He had a grass gallop this morning and went about his business nice and relaxed (see clip below). He is on the grass, the horse closest to the camera.

Another smart young What a Winter colt, he is slightly immature in comparison to Agent Murphy but what he lacks in size he makes up for in the way he moves. He won’t be small, he is just taking more time.

At this stage of his track work, he hasn’t been paired up with a companion to work alongside him as he has a very competitive nature.

He is a great mover however and once he learns to settle he will be a nice horse.
