Re: In Memoriam 2019

is 2019 trying to meet some secret quota? this is the exact opposite of what we want, especially during a time that's supposed to be happy.

i hope the fond memories will help the connections still enjoy their holidays.

Re: 2020 Stud Fees

Horsebagger - i know you're a breeder, so i have a (serious, no sarcasm) question.

if Freud's stats are so similar to the other stallions listed that command so much more money, why isn't he commanding the same? what makes him less desirable?

i'm not a breeder, but i do want to learn!

After his racing career was over, Dr Pleasure was gelded and given to Donna Ward.
that actually made me very happy to read, and i'd be willing to bet he's still there :)
thank you so much!

Wish Vino would race on one more year- just coming into his own. With all of those big money races next year he could have a Gun Runner- type campaign and go for HOY.

Re: Breeders Cup Discussion?

there was a whole thing in the breeding section about x-rays and radiographs being fudged at sales. the articles cited may have been over stating it, to be fair, but it read as a widespread issue that gets buried as a dirty secret. not being a buyer, i don't know how over stated it was *shrug emoji...
