It's so serendipitous when a cool horse gets a perfect name. We're excited to see that Royal Irish Lass '17 (Honor Code) has been named "Celtic Honor."

Re: BaroqueAgain?????

Wow, that fire really burned hot! Good to know that fireproof safes really aren't. Sounds like you've been able to go back in to see the damage. That must have been very hard. Are you in LA County? They got my donations along with the Red Cross so I hope so. We just guessed at your location, based o...

Oh so good to hear from you, BaroqueAgain!!! Sorry you lost your home, but most important you are safe and have your most prized possessions!

Re: BaroqueAgain?????

Most likely Woolsey, or just possibly Hill (she did mention two fires in her last post). And yes, she 'probably has her hands full with more urgent stuff. Logically speaking, I know that. Yeah, it's possible she lives in Ventura County rather than LA County. There are fewer destroyed properties the...

Re: BaroqueAgain?????

I'm still focused on the Woolsey fire aftermath because I think that's the area where BaroqueAgain lives. When you look at the progress there, it's not surprising she hasn't checked in, especially if her property is in the most impacted parts of the county and she needs temporary housing. The author...

Re: The Gelding Thread

If you love to see classy old geldings throw it down in the stretch, you might want to watch this finish by Pumpkin Rumble and Melmich in the Valedictory Stakes (Gr. 3) at Woodbine today. I wish they had started the video earlier to get the full effect. Video: https://twitter.com/TVG/status/10718854...

Re: Jockey/Trainer News - 2018

High cost of workers' compensation hitting NYRA trainers hard Since opening up a division on the New York Racing Association circuit in the spring of 2017, trainer Robertino Diodoro has won 69 races and his horses have earned just less than $3 million in purses.

Re: Hong Kong Racing

I'm glad Mirage Dancer's afib is resolving. Wonder what this means for his racing future though. I was wondering the same... Given it's cardiac in nature and he was "quite distressed"... I'm not a vet or a steward but I would imagine he's done. It sounds like the afib was a lot more than just palpi...

Yep. The jockey too. Mr Stunning looks a lot like his sire, Exceed and Excel (who I adore). Even his good temperament seems similar.
