A new look at racing
In the April issue of Equus magazine, there was an article on Kerry Thomas, who’s using herd behavior/psychology to bring out the best in performance horses. I found the article intriguing and put Mr. Thomas’s book on my wishlist.
Coincidentally, a friend emailed me the following link: http://kentuckyconfidential.com/2012/04/30/introduction-thomas-analyzes-the-2012-kentucky-derby-field/ I was surprised to find Mr. Thomas again. After reading this new article I went to his website: The Thomas Herding Technique to check it out. There is a lot of great information there – thought provoking. And it would be absolutely fantastic if Thoroughbred trainers would adopt his method. Certainly the horses would have a better life and be happier!
I have also put a link to his site under the Links section of the blog.
