The Chief’s Words

Just as The Special did during the summer of 2012 at Saratoga, we’ll provide some nuggets of wisdom from Hall of Fame trainer Allen Jerkens . . .

Editor’s Note: This article gets updated frequently so be sure to check back often. The dates below are when we posted the quote. The conversations have taken place over the years at Saratoga, Belmont, Florida, anywhere we could sit or stand or walk with The Chief.

The Chief’s Words are brought to you by the New York Thoroughbred Horsemen’s Association.

March 10: “You know Assault was a nice horse. You look up his record. I’ll never forget, when he was a 4-year-old and I was at Aqueduct, I was 16 or 17, anyway, he came over there, he was stabled at Belmont and worked a mile and an eighth on Thursday, he was running on Saturday. He worked with two horses. He won going a mile and a quarter, carrying 135 pounds. It’s amazing, the concept has completely turned around. Being around horses, I always say, a horse can be his own worst enemy, he’ll give you more when he’s light on his feet and fresh, but it’ll ruin him. That’s what make it so tough to train. You’ll get away with running a horse that’s extra fit and they win and then you figure that’s what you do with all of them. But you don’t know which ones it really hurts in the end. Same thing with riders. I think hard-whipping jocks shorten the life of a horse. You take some jocks, they never stay with a 2-year-old and all the way through his 3-year-old year. It’s hard to figure out, which is right, which is wrong, which proves to be right, which proves to be wrong.” Read more
