So, after coming back from my extended hiatus, I seem to have one (1) consistent horse: a two-year-old colt who has run 7 times this year, MSP, never out of the money and only once lower than 3rd.
This leads me to my dilemma: if I run him too much this year, will that ruin his chances of success in the future? Could overracing shorten his 3yo season and beyond? And if so, how many races feels like too many for a 2-year-old?
I was hoping to send him out at least monthly through the end of the year, but my current plan would have him running 12-13 times in his 2yo season, which I’m worried will be too much for him.
He’s at the farm now resting until probably the beginning of August, but I wanted to get people’s thoughts before I sent him off to Saratoga again next month!
