1989 Alabama Stakes [03:38]
For those hard-to-please critics who had been complaining that Open Mind is a brilliant horse with a bland style, the 3-year-old filly responded with a gritty performance on a rainy day at Saratoga. At the top of the stretch of the $232400 Alabama Stakes, Open Mind's chances appeared to be as gloomy as the day itself. She was ahead of only one horse, stablemate Lea Lucinda. She trailed the front-running Dearly Loved by more than five lengths and was running in the middle of the track, where the muddy surface had the consistency of butterscotch pudding. Open Mind had gone into Saturday's 109th Alabama with a nine-race winning streak dating to last November, but now, at 1-5 odds, she looked hopelessly beaten. Her critics were ready to add Open Mind's name to the list of fallen Saratoga favorites, which includes Man o' War, Gallant Fox and Secretariat. Before a crowd of 30309, Open Mind chose not to become a part of that gallery. "Of all the fillies I've ridden," Angel Cordero would say later, "I've never been on one who tries as hard as this filly. If she were a person, she'd want to work seven days a week." Cordero went to his whip 16 times--seven times from the right and nine from the left--and it took that 16th whack to get owner Gene Klein's filly to the wire, a neck before Dearly Loved. Open Mind might win 10 more races in a row, if she is allowed to stay on the track long enough, but no victory will come any harder than Saturday's. Jean Cruguet was aboard Dearly Loved ...

Billy - The third ride [03:12]
Hi everyone! So Billy is back in action again! I gave him the week off as he was a bit off colour from being kicked in the field, and the poor thing's feeties were a bit tender from being quite overdue for a trim. Been doing a bit of groundwork with the boy, starting to do a bit of lunging in the roundyard as we're not entirely sure of doing it on a lunge line as of yet, lol. You will notice there's quite a bit of work done in the walk in this video, sorry if it's a bit bland to watch, but that's what we do at home so you may as well see it in my videos! Most of the ride was done in the walk, lots of halt transitions in there, and once we had that down pat without a fuss we had a play in the trot and a brief canter just to see what he'd do! This week will be a lunging bootcamp week to try and get him a bit more balanced to improve the ridden flat work, and to muscle him up a bit too. I'll just touch on a couple of things, following my last video I got a TON of emails asking questions, so here are the main couple of things addressed! You will notice my hands are quite wide and I don't have a heap of contact. Looseish contact is because I'm more concerned with him moving freely forward, rather than jamming him into an outline. In my opinion it is better to have them forward and soft then in a frame and not going anywhere. Anyone can jam a horse up to try and make it look 'pretty'. I would rather have them working properly. I'm also not concerned with my position on a green ...
