Re: Honor Code ...

Let's see what happens when Democratic Values debuts on Friday back at Belmont Park. Klaravitch/Brown/Castellano teaming up with a colt with a string of works on the main track at Saratoga that suggest he as some talent. Watch him work on xbtv.com in advance and tell me he's a one paced grinder. I ...

Re: 2019 Keeneland September

I'm especially looking forward to Cavorting's Curlin filly. Cavorting has been forgotten because she was injured and missed the Breeder's Cup, but she was a fantastic filly........ She's an out. So is Rachel's Valentina's Curlin colt. Oh, what? Darn............but, maybe the owners just decided to ...

Re: Honor Code ...

I'm talking about the father, not the son, remember? I never said HC never had talent, he very obviously did. But, there's no denying he had one run in him per race, from dead last usually. And he either made up the distance, or he didn't . I never cared for the fact the jock usually had at least o...

Re: Honor Code ...

Pleasant Colony did okay......really it’s all about turn of foot not so much when it’s used. Honor Code had turn of foot and he was special from 7-8f. He could get 9, but I liked him best at 7-8f around one turn. He actually ran pretty well in the BC Classic....and yes, he had a brilliant turn of f...

Re: Honor Code ...

^^ Agree to disagree. He had one run in him , and frequently had to be got into by the jock to prompt that drive. Wasn't uncommon to see him getting the stick to start him moving. Didn't answer my question about run from last types as sires though. Surprised to see the stallion no one wanted, Tonal...

Re: Honor Code ...

Not shocked by this early lack of success, but you'd think they'd have bred him to enough speedy 2 yr old sprinting types to get him off the mark a little better. Realistically, he had ZERO early speed and was, IMO, a one paced grinder who ran from last. Have there been any successful stallions of ...

Re: Honor Code ...

Thanks, guys, for being so rational, lol. I tend to worry, so now I'm more relaxed...... Coronado's Quest, yep ......the only one I've seen who hasn't been a real closer is Bellavia. By the way, Honor Code really stamps his offspring; they all seem to be big, dark with gorgeous blazes down their fac...

Re: Honor Code ...

Ok, this thread took an unfortunate turn. I wasn’t concerned about Honor Code being sent anywhere, FYI.

As I typed this, he just had a colt named Thunder Code run extremely well at 5 1/2 furlongs - he was blocked the last part of the race, to boot.

Honor Code ...

Is it too early to be concerned about Honor Code? He’s got 2 winners from 16 starters and neither one of those look that good. I’m following all of his progeny, and the only one who has shown much is Bellavia, who finished a very good second to an Asmussen speedster. There’s one out in CA, Honor A.P...

Re: Imperative

Will not be headed to old friends yet. Ron paolucci has taken imperative out of retirement...the horse is nine...what more does he have left to prove? I didn't even know he was headed to Old Friends....but now I'm upset because he would have a good home there. The horse, of course, is showing that ...

Re: 2019 Two-Year-Olds

Honor A.P., a gorgeous, giant son of Honor Code and Hollywood Story, finished second in his sprint debut. He runs just like his sire and closed an amazing amount of ground. I think he’s very talented, but I hope he doesn’t need to be that far back going forward

Re: 2019 Two-Year-Olds

Gozilla (Flatter-Atlantic Dream-Stormy Atlantic) looked fantastic today in a maiden race at Saratoga. Myrtlewood shows up way, way back in the pedigree. I love his pedigree. Stormy Atlantic and Flatter both very underrated horses. Flatter has become a fantastic sire..... he was a really talented ho...

Re: First Winners

No article yet but I saw that Honor Code just got his first winner in the first at Laurel. It's Night Code , the colt out of Unenchantedevening . Yayyy! I know it’s only July, but I worry. He'd only had 2 or 3 starters, so while I was eager to see him get off the mark, I tried to remember this........
