Re: 2019 Foals

you're right, my apologies.

though now i'm wondering, were they AI'ing him or am i mixing him up with another stud? he doesn't really need to spread his genes, but the in a perfect world, sentimental part of me likes thinking abt his babies.

Re: 2019 Foals

Trying to luck into the next Raise a Native or Malibu Moon, I suppose. Valiant Minister was a $680,000 OBS juvenile, then won his only start for Baffert, six furlongs in 1.08.82. Second dam is Lunar Spook. How many mares did TGM get his first year? :roll: TGM is no longer with us and had been strug...

Re: Accelerate vs Justify HOTY

so if we get a TC winner, what the racing world is telling me is that the rest of the year is completely invalid outside of divisional honours. sounds good, means everyone can have an easy year.

i hope the HoF manager was serious when he said he didn't think justify would qualify.

Re: Great read - food for thought: Blame the Breeder

however, without claiming races, the stories of "we claimed the horse to save it" might go away, and more horses may be at risk - what horse was it that was recently claimed and retired, but the owner refused to sell and wanted to keep racing? now give them the option to keep running in low tier ra...

Re: Great read - food for thought: Blame the Breeder

friends who aren't horse racing fans have asked me, when i do get them to talk abt it, "what if your horse is good at that lower rank and hits the board often, but you don't want to sell it?" good question. however, without claiming races, the stories of "we claimed the horse to save it" might go aw...

Re: Accelerate vs Justify HOTY

There is no good argument for Accelerate. He will be forgotten as soon as his career ends. Only horse racing could be dense enough to pretend this is any type of debate at all. It reminds me of football fans who ignore the big picture and change opinion of every player and team every week. I rememb...

Re: The VENT Thread

does anyone else hate the holidays so much that if they had to choose between Keeping Up With the Kardashians and Justin Bieber, and celebrating the holidays, that they'd be able to tell you the girls' different fashion preferences and the musical direction changes in JB's albums, or is that just me?

Re: Accelerate vs Justify HOTY

all that argument gives him is 3 yr old hoty, which he deserves since really, this crop had no exceptional standout (hard to beat a TC). hoty is open to all ages. since he didn't put on a hoty performance (stayed in restricted races and vanished after four months, 6 races, and 2 "wow we don't like t...
