14yo g Box Top, who for the last 3 years prefers to race but once a season, is entered in Race 1 at Millarville this Saturday (7/1/17). He began his career at
Emerald Downs too far back to remember, but still has a little fire in the belly. Good luck to this War Horse - I believe he is the oldest thoroughbred currently still at work.

Box Top (He's Tops - No Forgiveness, by Basket Weave), 61 - 9-11-9, $58,565.

That sweet hug photo of Royal F J and Carava may be a little misleading.
Britney Eurton interviewed Jack earlier today and RFJ was the main topic of discussion. Jack said he's 'tough' on the boys around the barn, and not always easy to train.
Carava said he had the horse when he was a yearling and they gelded him before he ever raced, because he was so 'tough.'
I'm going to take that to mean he was unruly and bitey? :P
And he hasn't mellowed as he's gotten older...still a pretty aggressive horse, which Carava said may be why he has stayed competitive after so many races. Also said he takes care of himself, putting in supreme efforts just every once in a while.
He does like visitors and is always looking for his peppermints.
Sounds like he may be tough enough to make it to retirement, but I wonder if he has the temperament to be a pony horse.

Gosh, I watched that same interview and came away with a very different understanding of the conversation. He said he was a horse who tries but doesn't overdo it, and rewards them for their efforts. I love those kind of geldings because they do give themselves the chance to have long successful careers. Jack's claimed him back twice and compared him to a pet dog who's been in his care a long time, since he was a yearling. Brittney pressed him to talk about his quirks and that's when he said he's a tough horse to train (was a tough horse to break too) and a little aggressive and tough on the boys. He said Royal F J loves getting spoiled and they keep him close to the office. I detected a lot of fondness for the horse in the conversation; maybe because I can relate to having a tough old gelding who was very similar. That guy didn't really mellow until he got into his retirement home, but I love him dearly then and now. Different perspective I guess.

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!
