I didn't mean to imply that Carava doesn't love the horse; he clearly does. And he's a horseman who understands 'tough' horses and how to work around their quirks.
RFJ probably isn't really mean, but he does sound like a horse who makes you pay attention to what you're doing (and especially to what HE'S doing) when you're working with him. ;) :P

Yep, not mean or untrustworthy. I doubt even Jack would hug a horse like in that picture if that horse tended to bite, lol.

Was wondering how Two Wonders made nearly $700k while running almost exclusively in claimers, then noticed she had raced at Woodbine most of her career...that'll do it.

The golden oldies sure do like running at Presque Isle though, don't they? Seems like I see a lot of teenagers running up there after their stints on other circuits. Is the surface easier on them?

There are a few dozen 10 - 13 year old warriors that are followed closely on this thread currently racing at Camarero Race Track in Puerto Rico. With Hurricane Irma
bearing down on San Juan with predictions of 180 mph sustained winds, and torrential flooding rains, it seems that horsemen and their charges have reason to be
fearful tonight. It is difficult to imagine that any animals residing in wooden stables, stalls and barns could survive this without tremendous luck - or perhaps a better word - miracle. I'm hoping for the best possible outcome on the other side of this, and that all people and animals can somehow manage to stay safe.

Too many familiar horses running there. A friend of mine joined the West Point partnership that bought Go Black Tie at the 2013 two year old Barretts sales for $125k. Spent many a day loving on this sweet boy. The now 6 yo gelding has been racing at Camarero since April 2015, and my friend gave up on ownership. Praying for a miracle and safety for people and animals!
