    Default Wishing on a trainer!In Texas?

    Guys I'm posting this just for opinions but if you had the funds and wanted to play the white jacket game what trainer would you pick in Texas?

    Need more info; young dog, older dog with potential? Previous trainers who had dog, references from them? Doubt Farmer would take a dog without references but I could be wrong. Your post should have asked for PM's also.

    You have several you could contact in Texas. Need more info on what you and your dog are looking for.

    This is more like the real world..

    Getting a dog on those types of trucks is similar to a human athlete. You don't just walk onto the "Steelers" or "Yankees" and think you will be signed

    What did you do in High School?? What college?? Who knows you??

    You need to have talent first..

    With said I'd take the one that would agree to take my dog..

    As stated prior, it really depends on what your situation is. Now that said, I would call up several & talk with them. They're human. They'll talk to you. Go straight to the horse & hear it out of his mouth. Don't get discouraged by what you read on the Internet.

    The 3 that would be on top of my list are Mr. Danny Farmer, Mr. Dave Rorem, & Mr. Bill Eckett.

    This question is completley hypothetical.And you are right I should have asked for pms.I did not mean to pit any trainers against each other.It would be more of a basis of a young dog with potential.Pms are welcome on any of your opinions thanks and just bored on a Friday night.

    here is an answer to your hypothetical...IF I had the financial resources and the right dog(s) I would offer a half ownership to any one of these 3 people, so the dog could still run the amateur stakes and qualify for the National Amateur..those 3 are Judy Aycock, Sylvia McClure and Lauren Hays....all three can win Opens, and obviously Judy has won TWO Nationals...I think she has one more left in her quiver
