I seriously don't understand horse people.

And some the stuff I've already heard is mind boggling.

The owner wanted the trainer to drop a couple horses a so they would get a win and he would get a picture. So the trainer did.

The exercise rider (also an owner, trainer) asked if they could bring a couple back from the track because he was going to claim a couple nags.

They said sure. Plenty of room on the trailer.

Exercise rider claimed both of their horses.

This is very common. It's a time and money thing. Horses not cashing checks are burning up the training bill.

This is NOT common. Unless they had an understanding. At the training center where mine are, it is common for a trainer, whose owner has an eye on another trainer's horse to claim, to alert the other trainer. Once alerted if the trainer scratches the horse, they wanted to keep it. If they didn't then it might not be a good claim.

I might be SE of St Louis, but I'm still in Illinois. Somethings are just the Chicago way.

My favorite is a guy had a yearling wild as a March Hare he was going to take to auction. It didn't even have a halter on it.

He backed a two horse trailer in the barn and and put all the feed and hay in the trailer for a few weeks. Day before didn't feed off. Morning before the sale he dropped the gate and the yearling ran right in to eat. From the side he was able to get a halter on it.

Made sure to back in well inside the gate at the auction and drop the gate. Yearling went out like a house a fire. When they finally got it cornered somebody yelled, "is this thing even halter broke?" And the guy yelled back "It's got a halter on doesn't it?"
