Re: The rise of Sunday Silence

My God, he was sickle hocked... So what? I could really say the same about half the stuff you post... but anyway, we often post photos of TBs on here and we often make comments about how they look. It’s perfectly fine to do so. We comment on colour, pretty tails, club foots, dinosaur heads, whateve...

Re: New Conformation Photos

Although this isn't a standard conformation shot, Chrome's flawless natural dressage-like trot says a lot about his conformation. https://scontent-iad3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/48164870_1947226328660124_4439825509123096576_o.jpg?_nc_cat=109&_nc_ht=scontent-iad3-1.xx&oh=0472797579bdeda8ed45846da5e09d8...

Re: The rise of Sunday Silence

My God, he was sickle hocked... The most disappointing thing about some reactions to my post linking the really excellent Arthur Hancock III interview is the focus on what was perceived to be wrong with Sunday Silence rather than on Mr. Hancock's fond remembrance of the great horse. I especially en...

Re: 2018 Fasig-Tipton November

Re: Love the Chase-not surprised. The full siblings to California Chrome haven't done much. It doesn't bode well for Chrome's stallion career. SF Bloodstock seemed like extremely commercial breeders/buyers. If there isn't an instant return they don't seem interested. They were part of the syndicati...

Re: New Conformation Photos

Although this is not an official conformation photo of California Chrome, it is close enough to post here. It was taken at Haras Sumaya during their day when the public can visit and see Chrome, who is much loved and appreciated in Chile. (https://twitter.com/Loreleo/status/1043684960551485441) http...

Re: Stallion News

I’m saying what Curtis and Flanders are saying, but in different words... he was ruined, cooked, f**ked up from that huge effort in the Met Mile! He was never the same. Really incredible effort, but it did something to him. I never said he should not have been in the race, just that it ruined him. ...

Re: New Conformation Photos

I'm far from an expert but his shoulder angle looks very nice. I've always understood that the shoulder governs the forearm stride (happy to be instructed). You're right. He does have a nice shoulder. Rule of thumb: In your mind's eye, draw an imaginary line from the top of the withers straight dow...

@SSilence86, thanks for posting the news and link to Chrome's latest colt. The foal is quite lovely. Many of the Chrome foals we've seen here in North America are impressive and look a lot like him.

Phantom is quite spectacular. If he can run some, he will acquire tons of fans.
