Elmo's lucky!

I am starting to get a bit miffed at wannabe trainers who use the media as a tool to deliver their “expertise” when they have no qualifications in horse training whatsoever.

Many have raised the issue of a two-year-old called Lucky Elmo, who had 20 starts in his two-year-old season and is trained at Taree by Bindi Cheers.

 A common misconception among many people is that there is only one way to train a racehorse, that being fast work on a Tuesday and Thursday and light work in between. Anything else and you are an unconventional hippie.

These misconceptions were born with training centres where you had a certain amount of time to work your horses before they shut and you only had certain days to gallop on the grass, those being Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday morning.

I can inform Barbara Mercer (1/8) there are many, many ways to get a horse fit and keep it sound, happy and racing well.

Bindi has been hung out to dry on occasion for approaching the training of her horses in an unorthodox fashion.

Bindi has been quoted in the media as saying that Lucky Elmo doesn’t do any fast work at home, leaving this for raceday. So what’s the problem? If this is the case then the horse would be doing a lot less fast work than 99 percent of horses that are trained using conventional methods.

Lucky Elmo ran a very good second at Randwick, at his 19th start this season, on July 22. One would think if the horse was suffering any ill-effects of this supposedly arduous campaign that his form would taper off. But no, the horse seems to be happy and continues to race well.

 A Melbourne two-year-old called Stoneblack, trained at Caulfied by Robert Smerdon, had 15 starts in the season just passed yet no one raised an eyebrow.

If he followed a traditional training regime this horse would have galloped many, many more kilometres than Lucky Elmo while having five fewer race starts. The only difference is that Robert Smerdon is seen as a conventional trainer and trains a team of 80-plus horses so no one would dare to question his training methods.

 As Barbara mentioned, Bindi trained a grand old galloper called Quadri a few years back. The horse rarely had more than a few weeks between runs and was consistent throughout his career. He finished up with 131 starts, finishing in the first three 48 times.

I would imagine Quadri winning his hometown cup at Taree the day after he ran fourth at Randwick would have been very satisfying for Bindi and is one reason why she will continue to employ her training methods, however unconventional they may be.

 As for the knockers like Barbara, I have no idea what profession she is employed in, but I do know that If I told her how to do her job without being qualified in that particular field, her response would be less than friendly.

 Maybe a cap should be put on letters like hers, not the number of starts a trainer wishes her horse to have.

My point exactly   ;)

Unless you have a knowledge of horses to begin with, then you can not comprehend what you can and can not do  :no:

There is no right and wrong in this game, and the sooner people realise this the sooner they will succeed in the game.

J.J. Size had many a knocker too, when he began his semi unorthorox method of training, the rest is history I guess  :confused1:

I heard Lucky Elmo run second in the first at Canterbury today.

Last night SONORAN SANDS won the  15.30 from Lingfield after running 3rd in the 18.10 at Windsor the night before.

Would a or has a horse ever run on the Saturday following running at a Monnee Valley night meeting the night before ?

Just looked through Picnic In The Park's record.
Very impressive and would leave a lot of trainers shaking their heads.
He won 16 times in a 16 week period.
He was a 5yo and they were mainly in country races but nevertheless.

Not sure Auth.

You posted today about Lucky Elmo after a year Authorized.

What happened to him for the past 12 months? Did he get injured?

I don't know much about him, it was the second part of my post that I was more concerned with.
