Outlaw Blue By You had a very decent qualifying effort this past Saturday.
The best part (for me) was that it was a terrific learning experience for him.
JF Gagne drove and gave him a taste of all sorts of scenarios: settling behind the gate, taking back, patiently sitting behind other horses, moving to the outside while pacing his speed, then coming home very willingly when asked. Blue remained sure and confident through it all.
JF is a knowledgeable horseman and provides all sorts of excellent feedback and suggestions.
