For those of my friends that don’t race horses or never trained a “trip” here is a video of my trotter Storm Winds training this morning. He hit the track twice, we call them “trips”.  The first trip is basically a warm up and I took him for a mile in 2:35.  The second trip was more of a speed workout and we went the mile in 2:15.  2:15 is about 15 seconds slower than an actual race.
