    How many of you will be experiencing the thrill of ownership with Ron Harris on 7th September?

    Is this the norm to be charging £155 quid for a tour of Chepstow

    http://www.ronharrisracing.com

    The part I’m most looking forward to is 1pm when "Ron Harris Marks your card" for Chepstow Races.

    Government wealth warning attached judged on previous efforts.

    It strikes me as quite an innovative way for a struggling small trainer to supplement his income (I assume he fits that description, though I must confess I’ve never heard of him).

    If he can find enough mugs to grab the bait, good luck to him!

    Harris has proved adept at picking up horses cheaply and improving them to win races ~ he may qualify as small but he certainly isn’t struggling.

    He is an excellent trainer. 155 is not that bad considering you are getting a Hearty Breakfast at the stables and a day at Cheptow in a private box with lunch included

    What makes someone an "excellent trainer"

    I look upon somebody that can train whom is able to prepare a horse for specific target similar for a juvenile attempting to win first-time-out, that his ‘trainer’ has educated to ‘know their job’

    You couldn’t suggest he places his horses with extreme planning, more a scatter approach based upon ‘hit n miss’ qualities.

    A big difference for me between an ‘excellent trainer’ and somebody capable of sweetening an individual.

    No. His away in France for a few weeks – I did witnessed what had been mentioned although it had breached my bed-time.

    We are partners in the racing.

    What makes someone an "excellent trainer"

    It’s all about making the horses happy! i like a trainer that has good facilities and keeps things natural to the horse
    simon earl isn’t exactly a world class trainer but he uses great methods training his horses using natural horsemanship with some great facilities too, it’s just a matter of time before he is getting lots of winners! he keeps his horses turned out as a herd, runs them without shoes and even uses a horse walker with salt water for the condition of the horses legs!
    i think owners are cautious about putting their horses in with him for his strange way of training, most people just want to do what everybody else is doing

    Do you know who it was that threatened him and his wife at Chepstow last week?

    I believe Simon has actually quit the training ranks, and Eamonn Wilmott who owns the yard where he was based and who was responsible for Earle’s methods has appointed a new trainer to take over the operation.

    I see your location is London, no bloody wonder you think £155 is not bad :lol:

    Believe me, i’d want more than a breakfast and a dinner for £155 – I could go on holiday for that 8)
