Re: Stallion News

Talismanic retired.
Not a big shock. No announcement of stud plans yet.

Re: California mares bred to Stronach stallions...$500

I just did now this morning.

Not sure if there's a story here or not.....but something seems odd here to me.

Why are they basically dumping all these horses for $550....and why are they all bred to Stronach stallions?

California mares bred to Stronach stallions...$500

Saw post on Facebook the other night with a link to a website. On it were well over 20 mares and young horses. All the mares were bred to City Wolf, North Light and Shaman Ghost. All for 'auction' and up for sale for $500. Basically, what seemed a dump site for lack of better wording... I'd saved th...

Re: 2018 Keeneland November Sale

On the FT thread, Northport asked, " Am I nuts for thinking that a Tapit half sister to Arrogate is kind of a deal at $750,000?" In the Bloodhorse article about her sale, the photo shows that the filly is shod on all four feet. Shoes on a WEANLING? :shock: The Comments after the article do not have...

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: horses with unique coloring/facial markings

The Lucky Pulpit x Passionforfashion colt appears to be a grey who is going through an interesting color phase. Love the gold mane and tail with the matching gold hooves and swath of color across the flanks, but I suspect that he's going to look like a normal grey in a year or two. Attractive, alth...

Glad to see Captain Bodgit still get some action :) FuPeg only 4.... and I am shocked Coolmore still has him. is there a clause that forbids his transfer/sale to different fa...

Re: Cozmic One

I caught his final round at the RRMP on the weekend. It's not hard to see why he failed as a runner.... He's just NOT an athletic horse by any stretch - not even for this new career. He's a lazy jumper, doesn't use his back and body. And he spent 60+% of the time counter cantering around the ring. Y...

Re: 2018 Fasig-Tipton November

Yeah, I neglect to see how Chrome's siblings lack of success would affect his career. Sisters Hope's Love and R Sunday Suprise are winners, so Chrome's successes combined with that should increase their value as broodmares, if anything. Brother Faversham's lack of winning really plays no part. As f...

Re: 2017 Names

A 2017 filly that caught my eye in a sales catalog has been named. Unbridled Huntress , Empire Maker x Hunter’s Mark by Titus Livius. Hunter’s Mark is a half-sister to King Kamehameha and The Deputy, and her sire Titus Livius is a MGSW. She looks a lot like Empire Maker. She was bought by Ruis Raci...

He absolutely still is. I had to boot him from the FB group for his repeated violations.

He was also private messag...

Re: 2018 Keeneland September Yearling Sale

Just popped on and was looking through recent results.

The Declaration of Wars are really bombing late in the sale.....one sold for $4000, another sold for $5000, and another for $17,000.
Either he bred some poor mares or they're awfully unfortunate looking....
