Re: New Conformation Photos

Call me crazy, but I don't think Orb looks that fat. His neck is huge, but that's not uncommon. He looks a lot like Malibu Moon and the A.P. Indy tribe tend to get swaybacked, often at a fairly young age. They also tend to let down quickly and carry a lot of flesh. "Carry a lot of flesh" = fat. Sta...

Re: New Conformation Photos

The Malibu Moons do seem to be hunks...or chunks, depending on whether you like that look. :lol: And they must be easy keepers, because I don't think I've seen a slender one. :P Someone should tell Claiborne that, because they seem to be stuffing poor Orb with grain over there. https://cdn.bloodhor...

Re: 2018 Keeneland November Sale

I'll take Saxet Heights, Aspenglow, Stopshopping Maria, Jessica is Back, and Almudena (now THAT is an interesting pedigree). Also, why do color breeders try to sell their horses at racehorse sales? A bay TB, no matter how good a ~sporthorse~ they are supposed to be, would get laughed out of the ring...

Re: New Conformation Photos

Revolutionary is a great-grandson of Mr. Prospector. It's relatively easy in the US to find a horse free of Mr. P or ND, but not both. That was Flanders' point.

Re: New Conformation Photos

Magneticjim is really appealing. He's interesting in that he's a hurdler with a flat racing pedigree. Not unusual in the US and UK but in France where he raced and stands most of their jumps horses are bred for that purpose. Dam Dibenoise has produced three group stakes winners on the flat. Dibenoi...

Re: New Conformation Photos

I think Mastercraftsman has turned out to be a very nice sire. Magneticjim has the Galileo elegance and bearing, but being that perfect dappled grey sure adds to his good looks. :D Hmmm...don't see very many gray Galileos. Only other two I can think of are Winter and The Assayer. He would have to h...

Re: 2018 Keeneland September Yearling Sale

Americain would be quite popular in MD or VA as a primarily steeplechase/sporthorse sire (at a suitable fee of course). If he's stuck at Calumet they ought to market him as such and open his book to non-TB mares.

Re: 2019 Pegasus

I know it's kind of weird to say in an industry known as the "Sport of Kings" dominated by aristocrats, sheikhs and celebrities, but does anybody else feel something's off about purses that are that high?

Sway Away was another swayback. Who is at stud for some reason!? Apparently didn't get much interest in CA so is now in NM breeding Quarter Horse mares for $500. But who would send any mare to a young stallion with a back like this? It's not like he was a particularly special racehorse either https...
