Wasn't sure where to put this. If you haven't read the 4 part series that Tere Albanese did with Mandella, it is worth settling in with a cup of coffee or tea and reading.
He is my top 3 favorite trainer. Looking at what he did with Bal a Bali, a 7 year old horse, just getting into his prime.......genius........ like one commenter said, NOBODY takes this kind of time with a horse. (I often think of all the horses we will never hear about because nobody sticks with them and develops them anymore)
(I have the documentary On The Muscle: Portrait Of A Thoroughbred Racing Stable --- it is the best behind the scenes look at a barn I've ever seen, during breeders cup with pleasantly perfect, etc. which is also OUTSTANDING)

There is just so much INSIGHT here.
If you followed the Tere Albanese series she did on trainer Frankel, you'll appreciate this one even more!
