Recently I was speaking to a friend who owns a share in a two-yearold colt the trainer had recommended be gelded. The trainer felt that the youngster was “too colty” in his work, which was hindering his training and future as a racing prospect. The colt was turned out for a spell while plans were put into place for him to be gelded, which included a sign-off from the group of owners, many of whom didn’t know each other.
My mate said he expected that the trainer’s recommendation would be adopted by all the owners, however, he was dismayed to find that some wanted the horse to remain a colt.
