Re: BaroqueAgain?????

Well at least you still have your driver's license, that's a small blessing... it makes me wonder, though, I have a "fireproof" box like that too. I guess if I really need to get out I should take the box with me...

Re: Racing in Japan

I saw pics online yesterday of Almond Eye on her rest break at the farm... seems she is doing well although there was mention of something about her right knee (and it had poultice on it). The plan still seems to be France in a few months, so... *fingers crossed* In other news, WELCOME BACK BA!!!!! ...

Re: In memoriam 2018

It's easy for strangers behind a tech device to pass judgment when they have no involvement. I hope the misguided comments were made with concern for the horse's well-being as their basis, even if it didn't come across that way.

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...

I'm not going to make the other two races live, I need to sleep... so I will just wish them safe trips and exciting finishes and continue to hope that Mirage Dancer is/will be okay. <3

Waiting for the Sprint, one of the commentators just said that Mirage Dancer suffered "a heart irregularity" - hoping that doesn't mean what I'm afraid it means... :?

Re: Hong Kong Racing

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah Lys Gracieux just second by a head in the HKVase, she fought for it every step of the way in the stretch but Exultant fought back and kept his head in front.

Love this filly. <3
