    While looking at the form for Kempton today I came across a horse in the 3-25 Mister Always.

    This horse has run 14 times now and has already had 5 different trainers for the same owner (C R Dore, Mrs J S Doyle, B P J Baugh, K McAuliffe and I W McInnes).

    Any owners have any info on why such a lightly raced horse would change trainers so often :?:

    The rather trigger-happy Peter Hughes has one or two horses in his ownership that have had nearly as itinerant a career.

    His Dinnie Flanagan has had four runs in little over a year. I saw the second of these at Towcester at the start of 2007, and this was his first (and ultimately only) one for Frank Jordan, having left Pat Haslam. He was moved to John O’Shea for his next run, but by the time of his latest outing at Warwick on New Year’s Eve he had moved on yet again to Paul Blockley.

    I haven’t the first idea why.

    Persian War had seven different trainers and never once ran in a claimer!

    His owner, Henry Alper, was rather a one-off though.
