Re: 2018 List of Mares Bred

Regarding Tapit...if he is indeed having fertility issues this year, if the rumor Horsebagger (I think) mentioned is true, I wonder how any of his 113 got in foal. Multiple covers with same mare before catching. Nobody suggested he was infertile. it burns time and leads to later foaling than antici...

Re: New Conformation Photos

He was precocious and better than his peers at two and starting his three-year-old racing season.Then his peers caught up to and passed him. Even now, it's like he never really finished growing. He was also a $2.2MM yearling with a pretty fantastic pedigree who was a MGSW going 2 turns on the dirt....

Re: Breeders' Cup Watchalong Thread

Neither do I but it's an interesting puzzle to try and figure out before they announce. What's the competitive niche they want to put them in to get the best 125 mares paying what full fee? Let's start with none of the 3 are out of the box top tier stallions, imo, competing with any of the 6 figure...

Re: 2018 Fasig-Tipton November

There is alot about NH sales that really confuse me particularly a "buyback" are Vendors not able to set reserves? Yes that is essentially what a buyback is. Its when the reserve is not attained (RNA) and the consignor has to pay a fee to "buy back" the horse. I believe its a percentage of the last...

Hip 200, Lady Aurelia, champion and multiple Grade 1 winner goes for $7.5 million They wanted the bidding to start at $10 million so might be an RNA Stop saying that. Where the auctioneer starts the suggested bidding has nothing to do with the reserve. If it did, the amount of manipulation that cou...

Re: Breeders' Cup Watchalong Thread

As of now, looking at Bloodhorse, Quality Road has the following sons at stud- Klimt Frank Conversation Blofeld Hootenanny City of Light will be the best son, no question. Thanks for this. Clearly none are the prospect that City of Light appears to be, as these are likely considered more regional t...

Re: Breeders' Cup Watchalong Thread

I don't know enough to speculate, but I love reading and learning about this stuff. City of Light will be the first major Quality Road to stand at stud, right? Is that likely to increase his value, or does it make him a little risky? He strikes me as the most intriguing and possibly marketable sire...

Re: Breeders' Cup Watchalong Thread

I feel bad for Mind Your Biscuits who no way is mile and a quarter horse. i hate to see him retire with this race as his last- if they had put him in a race he belonged in, he may have had a chance to be competitive Once his trainer got his stallion deal done, it became a different set of objective...

Y’all know the folks at Lane’s End are having an absolute mega party freak out at the farm right now. What fees you think they set for the 3 new residents? I haven't a clue.

Accelerate also became the first horse ever to sweep the Santa Anita Handicap, the Gold Cup at Santa Anita, the PAC Classic and the Awesome Again before winking the BC Classic (In the same year and in general if I’m not mistaken). He’s now 6 for 7 this year and his only loss was a second place, all...

Well then. Not much to say about that. Guess it wasn’t Biscuits’ day. I still love him though. :) Congratulations to John Sadler! Bet that feels good!
5 wide on first turn while being to close to a fast pace. Wrapped up by mid-far turn.

Still want to see that iso on the trainer.

I could listen to John Gosden read the phonebook.
And I could bet on every horse he brings to the Breeders Cup. In fact, a few sheckles ATB on Roaring Lion. Having only some small DD bets riding at this point, I'd be happy to see him win.

Gosden just said what I wanted to say. Kudos to Juddmonte and the Prince for allowing us to enjoy so many of their horses every year in the Breeders Cup. Quite the sportsman.

Re: Breeders' Cup Watchalong Thread

I wonder if Abel has hit that stage in a filly's life where they've had enough of racing. When you think about it, racing's not that much fun for a horse if they aren't eager to compete. Off to the shed for AT? Agree. She's done looking at BB every morning and giving everything in every work/start....

Re: Breeders' Cup Watchalong Thread

You could have crossed Abel off 10 yards out of the gate. Despite the fact she was 'working' so strongly, I ignored the advice I heard that 'they kept saying the same thing about Arrogate when he was over the top'. Might have been Mike Beer, don't remember, but I was against MG anyway. (tearing up v...
