Re: Across the pond

Eminent, a classy group performer by Frankel, has been brought out of retirement and will be returned to training in Australia. https://www.racingpost.com/news/latest/eminent-out-of-retirement-and-heading-for-melbourne-after-leaving-meade-yard/362418 There was a lot of hype around this horse as a 3 ...

Re: Expensive Purchases Hit The Racetrack

I mean, she's by Galileo, so I would hope that she will at least start her career in Ireland or England. If she does race in Europe, I doubt the filly would go to Besilu in Ocala as a weanling and for her pre-training. If they do plan to start her racing career in America, then yeah she is probably ...

Re: Winx

No, they don't count as races. They are pretty much group timed workouts. They are very common in Australia... and Hong Kong as well I believe.

Re: Older Horses - 2019

Yeah, I'm not a fan of the returning 9 year olds to training, either. When 4 or 5 year old stallions are returned to training after proving infertile is one thing, but the excuse about horses being bored to death in retirement has always irked me. There are dozens of jobs a 9 year old OTTB can do th...

Re: Indian Classics

Interesting that Sir Cecil's main opponent is trained by the real Sir Henry Cecil's stepson. I didn't know that there were any imported Thoroughbred trainers in India at all, tbh.

Re: Stallion News

So glad to see that he is still thriving and covering (small books) of mares at his age. I also had no idea that Distorted Humor was covering 125+ mares at his age :shock: . Guess that's the difference between Adena and WinStar. Also didn't know AA had two very serious bouts of colic, he really is a...

Re: Random News about Breeding and Breeders

I wonder if any of those dozens of broodmares in foal to the Adena Stallions were impregnated using AI... or if Andy Stronach had anything to do with it or if the mares were Nadine Anderson's... the plot thickens.

Re: Photos/News about Broodmares

I think a 23 year old mare has zero foals left in her, rather than 2 or 3. To me it just sounds like he's just trying to convey that the colt is a rare entity, being a half sibling to two G1 winners and out of a mare that is probably now pensioned, or close to it. Though I have heard that some (or m...

Um.. I had hoped Yoshida would race on on the dirt to increase his future stud value. I will cheer for him anyway and now hope he will beat Aerolithe and the others. Good luck to him! If Yoshida runs in the turf Pegasus, he is almost guaranteed to pick up a better cheque than he would in the dirt P...
