Re: Racing in Japan

I think I can understand why the farms may be reacting so strongly. It was just a bit of mane this time but, if a someone was able to commit that vandalism, it also means that they got close enough to the horse to actually HURT him if they chose to. :( People are weird...and too often can be really ...

Gorgeous. I suspect this son of Blixen is not likely to be gelded like his half-bro. ;)

Oh no. :cry: I was a huge fan when she was racing, and stated ( on another forum ) that IMHO she deserved to be served by the finest Kentucky blue blood stallions when she retired. And she was.

Re: Older Horses - 2019

Thunder Snow will not be running in the BC Classic this fall, unfortunately. Sounds like his connections are going to let him rest and then gear up for a go at a third World Cup victory. If he happens to successfully prep in that $20 million Saudi Cup, his lifetime earnings are going to be ridiculo...

Re: The Pennsylvania Derby Saturday

I was wondering...HOW do you get the colon/spleen un-entrapped? It didn't sound like he had surgery, so does the vet manipulate the intestines from outside the body? :shock: :?

Re: Matings 2019

He's 20, so is it possible he was pensioned?
The foals from Deep Impact's last 24 breedings are sure to be prized by buyers.
I see that Orfevre had a drop from 136 to 52. Does that indicate some disappointment in his foals? :?

On paper, it looks like it should be a good race, AND it's being shown on network NBC. That's a good thing for those fans (like me) who are cable/satellite-challenged. :mrgreen:

Re: Article in New York Times states Justify failed a drug test before the Derby

I'm not saying that what has happened with the Justify positive is OK, but if the racing industry can ignore a Saudi royal condoning ( if not outright ordering ) the murder and dismemberment of an American-based reporter, what makes you believe that it's going to be up in arms over a Baffert drug ov...

Re: Racing in Dubai Sale - September 2019

I saw a few familiar names there ( like Special Fighter, Faulkner, Romansh, Layl ), but I wonder what will happen to some of those older formerly high-class horses. I saw quite a few "Horse not to be used for breeding purposes in the UAE" notes for many of the intact horses. I wonder why those parti...

I couldn't read the NYT article either, so I'm wondering if it included the drug overage in its information. Was it very small, which might have been caused by ( as the above linked info suggests ) environmental contamination? If it was, could that have been the reason the CHRB decided to drop the c...

Re: 2019 Keeneland September

The only 'flaw' (if you want to call it that) I can find is that he doesn't look like a yearling. :?:
I've seen 3yos without that much muscle.
Is this an example of a youngster who has been over-prepared, just to look great in the sales ring? :?
