Re: G1 PA Derby & G1 Cotillion Saturday, Sept. 22

A jockey has to be in control of his mount, which Florent Geroux didn't.

Re: G1 PA Derby & G1 Cotillion Saturday, Sept. 22

MB went from being cut off on the rail, having to go around and then getting carried about 10 paths out because MG wouldn't run straight. I think MB would have won and isn't that the point of objections?

As long as they are taking for this objection, Monomoy Girl is probably going to come down.

So happy he made it home safely after such an ordeal. Can he be used for breeding in the future once fully recovered?
Doesn't sound like that have any plans to do so unless they have breeding facilities at their farm. They said he is at his forever home.

Re: Pants On Fire?

I posted about this in December 2017 when someone else was looking for him. But the story went: Per Diamond B Farm owner Glenn Brock, they could not get him to breed mares. He was checked by specialists but never showed interest. Has been retired to a friend's farm but I don't have any other info re...

Oh man I hate it when you think of a horse name, or part of it, and you're convinced they existed but you don't know how to find evidence.
I can never remember Grace Hall's name. I always have to look it up...but I remember she has Grace in her name and was by Empire Maker.

Re: Duck named horse...

maybe I was combining Walkslikeaduck and Duckhorn(who is grey, I just thought of him). Duckhorn was a GSW but was on the dirt and he didn't stand at stud in Kentucky.

Duck named horse...

Seeing Mula Gula's name made me think of another turf runner from around that time. For some reason in my head I thought the other horse was a grey. The only horse I could think of was Walkslikeaduck. Was there another horse around that time that was a Graded Stakes Runner with Duck somewhere in his...

As long as they avoid the horrible facebook recommendations like Zen D'Oro or Medagliayatta I'll be happy :lol: . They've been pretty original with their names thus far... I didn't like Cozmic One or Ziconic, but at least they're... unique. At least it’s not Jess’s Dream or Rachel’s Valentina. I’ve...

Re: 2018 foals

PETA has done some good work in exposing mistreatment of food and dairy livestock, but it's like its most vocal and extreme members have become the face of the organization. When they started pushing an agenda that would remove horses from any sort of work, they lost me. Not just extreme, but prett...

Not accusatory by any means (cause I know it probably sounds that way) but how did they ruin Mor Spirit in the Met Mile? Or more specifically, how did winning impressively ruin him? I was told that Mor Spirit was a head case that they just couldn’t do anything with, which is why he started racing l...

Re: Stallion News

When you say 'cooked,' are you suggesting that the effort in the race somehow harmed him physically? Has he been dealing with a lingering injury for the past 10 months, and he just couldn't recover 100% from that? Or were you thinking that the effort affected him mentally and turned him into a 'I d...

Re: Across the pond

This isn't across a "pond" but I don't know where else to ask. Does Canada have a Gr.I dirt race? No. They only have 5 G1 races and all are on the turf (Woodbine Mile, Northern Dancer S., Natalma S., Canadian International and E.P. Taylor S.). So many of their stakes races are restricted to Canadia...
