I claimed this 4-year-old, Leave A Note, several weeks ago, and he’s recovering from his races at freakish speed. I just ran him last Wednesday and he came out of it a winner, but he’s already almost fully recovered and now I have him in a race this coming Saturday.
Is this…is this normal? What do I do with horses like him?
Normal race recovery time can be anywhere between 7-21 days. You may just have gotten a colt that can run like a machine.
I think it just depends on the horse, I’ve got two that need a lot longer than a week to recover from one race, and I’ve got another that can race every week, he just raced on the 16th, came in 4th and now his energy is back at “A”.
