HOW YOUNG IS TOO YOUNG TO BREAK IN A YOUNGSTER?

How young is too young to break in your youngster? Many youngsters are broken in as yearlings even though the growth plates in their knees may not have closed over yet.

Do you have your youngsters’ knees x-rayed before breaking them in? How many early 2 year olds are burnt out before they are 3 year olds?

Some youngsters that race early are still only yearlings

I am a Small breeder of Thoroughbred horses for commercial sale and to race. I Started this site to provide a selling and marketing alternative for breeders with weanlings and yearlings to sell. Small breeders in particular can find it hard and expensive to leave their properties to go to the major sales. This site provides us with an online alternative to the major sales. The site can also be used to advertise youngsters being sold at the major sales and, if any youngsters are passed in, the site is an ongoing marketing platform to continue to market yearlings and weanlings after the sales are over. Trainers can also use the site to advertise shares in yearlings that they have bought at the sales.
