2-year-old Trainer Comments (Horse Racing)

I think every gambler must have a huge tracker list, whether it’s Attheraces, Timeform or just bits of paper stuffed everywhere (definitely me the stuffed paper a few years back). I watch video replays, I check the papers or social media, they all go in my trackers for future reference, even if I don’t bet on them first time out. 

I may bet later in the season.

These two-year-olds are the first few to go in the trackers this season. 

March Update: 

Karl Burke update on War of Clans: 

“This son of Ivawood is very forward as we thought he was, so we have cracked on with him, he will be one of my first 2-year-old runners of the season. This colt has a race pencilled in for Musselburgh in early April, and he is being readied for that. He works well at home with some class, he is showing plenty and should be winning races for the next few seasons as he is not just a 2-year-old. I couldn’t be happier with him and I think he is another cracking addition to the successful string we have had over the years and am very much looking forward to seeing him hit the track”. 

Karl Burke on Ladyley’s Beluga: 

“She has done incredibly well in the last month and has gone from being a filly who didn’t show us too much on the gallops to one that has been scorching them. She’s done some very nice gallops and has moved up to the top of the pecking order based on her recent work. I’m sure we will see some more improvement and I think she is very capable of winning races at 2. She is a typical Showcasing and just gets on with the job and wants to please”. 

Brian Smart on Chocoholic:

“I am absolutely delighted with this colt, he really wants to impress and does impress in his work. He has been working with older horses and has stayed with them and is very tough, he shows that will to win you need even at home on the gallops. Don’t hesitate to ask Ontowinner to visit our yard to see him work yourself and I am sure you would be as impressed as I am with him. I see him as a late April runner at this stage, but he is scopey and should grow into a lovely 3-year-old too. I am very happy with this colt, he has a great mind and shows plenty to show he is good enough to win a maiden. Please don’t hesitate to ask to come and see him, he looks a picture”. 

Looks like Ontoawinner has a few nice 2-year-olds this season and I will be adding this to my other information to try to get a few winners this season. Keep an eye out for my next 2-year-old trainer comments.
