Re: Old Friends

Re: Racing in Japan

Guignol and Iquitos are lovely horses and it's exciting to see them run outside their native Germany. Although I'm probably one of the few who prefers Guignol. ;) Well, then I'll join you in the 'club of the few'. 8-) I really love Guignol's pedigree and a good run in Japan would give a boost to hi...

Re: Stallion News

Found the India stud book on FB (link)- there are some familiar names https://www.indiarace.com/AllStallions.aspx Thanks for the link. Unfortunately, I just discovered that Dancing Forever has been deceased for quite a while. According to the website, he died June 2013, only 3 years after he was ex...

Re: Siblings (and offspring) of well-known horses

Wow, seems like the Jackson's want to get rid of one of the only two La Ville Rouge fillies that they own. Never in a million years thought I would see one of Barbaro's sisters entered in a claiming race with a tag. Unless she has only three legs or two heads, they could probably sell her for much m...

Re: Siblings (and offspring) of well-known horses

I seem to remember ( not always dependable :P ) him competing in a jumps race this year. Maybe he just didn't draw many mares, so they have set him on a second career? Ok, I've done some research: According to official records, he last raced nearly 2 years ago (11/13/2015). As for those mares.. he'...

As Kurenai said, just write to Vollblutgestüt Lindenhof (http://www.vollblutgestuet-lindenhof.de/index.php?id=8) where he stood his last season. I'm sure you'll get a reply, as Volker Linde is quite open and active at the German thoroughbred forum and likes to write about his "breeding adventures". ...

I'm really anxious for Nothing But Dreams (JPN) to debut (2014F Frankel x Danedream) but I'm having a hard time keeping track of her progress. I know she was sent to GB to train and race there but I haven't read anything new since that German article. She wasn't exactly sent to GB, as she was foale...
