Re: Random News about Breeding and Breeders

It’s dumb advertising to say “the only two living TC winners”... because the last winner before those two was born in ‘75. LOL, no sillier than how they'd been advertising American Pharoah early on as the "only Grand Slam of racing winner in history". No mention that there was no Breeders Cup back ...

Re: 2019 Keeneland September

Hip # 2146 .. a Colt (Summer Front-On the Menu), sold for one thousand. Was that the low price of the session? :? Summer Front X No Such Word (G1 winner) RNA'd for $1,000 - definitely not a good advertisement for the stallion. There were 2 other horses besides Summer Front X On the Menu sold for $1...

Re: 2019 Keeneland September

Saw a Trip gelding for $500 with New Vocation i believe, and in NY. I loved the dam when she was racing and saw her at Arlington Park. I would love an offspring of hers, found a boarding facility 13 min from me for $450, but vet and farrier are extra. I told myself to be sure i have the commitment ...

Re: Haskell Day

I think his backing up suddenly was due to being squeezed and the loss of momentum cost him a chance at a better placing . It was a judgement call. Going into the race I saw him as probably third best behind Max and Mucho Gusto, provided the latter runs after shipping. I didn’t bet the race so in t...

Re: Haskell Day

I thought maybe they didn't DQ Maximum Security because Monmouth already looked bad for not cancelling yesterday's card., but that blog post sure does make it look much worst than that.

i had asked about Jerseymooseisloose, who was pulled up in the last race at Monmouth on Sunday, in the "Waiting for Word on..." forum, but found out today that she was indeed euthanized after her injury.

Re: Waiting for news on ...

Anyone have any news on Nicodemus? Was pulled up after the Nerud on Saturday . Haven't been able to find any news since the news that he was pulled up. I read it was do to how he was reacting to the heat, not that he had been injured. To me it was ambiguous since it was "the jockey said he didn't f...

Re: Kentucky Derby : Do you agree with the stewards decision?

[] The Kennedy was not built to be the Audobahn. I thought it was the Tri-State that was the Autobahn. I mean, I was going 70 on it once and a state trooper blew by me like he was Arazi and I was Bertrando. But, to be sure that I'm on the actual topic: The stewards made the right call. The chain re...

Re: 2019 Kentucky Oaks

Not that there was any evidence to the contrary, I know on twitter there was some concern so here's this.

According to Ken McPeek, Restless Rider is fine; said she broke awkwardly and never really found her rhythm.

Wow, that was fast! I looked in on her a couple of hours ago and she was all muddy & dozy, tail unwrapped, just like every other day this week. :lol:
Same. I went to a birthday party. Checked in when I got home and the feed was down and the announcement was on the foal patrol site.

Re: 2019 Foals

Lassofthemohicans delivered a filly. The live feed is down, but according to the foal patrol page, they will be back up after they " ensure the foal is receiving adequate antibodies to stay healthy. We will share the birth video and photo updates soon. "

Re: Sad state of breeding

I've been lurking for a while after taking a (several year) hiatus from posting, but this is a subject near and dear to my heart. I totally concur with the original assessment. I feel like we are seeing the effect of bad breeding practices. The American thoroughbred industry needs to enact some stan...

Re: Matings 2015

Anyone know what mares Americain got over in Ireland? Given the fact the deal wasn't announced by Irish National Stud until the third week of January, I can't imagine he did very well. Calumet Farm has been sending Irish trainer Delmot Weld a increasing number of two year olds...so the farm seems i...
