Re: 2019 Fasig-Tipton November Sale

Snaafi Dancer cost around 13,000,000 guineas back in the day and in the words of John Dunlop, couldn't beat the yard dog in a race. Spending ridiculous amounts of money doesn't equate to success. And for every Miesque, Mariah's Storm, and Serena's Song, we get dozens of G1 winning mares who don't p...

Re: Happiness

I just made my second sale on Etsy ever, and last week, someone bought a painting privately.

I'm just so tickled that people actually will pay REAL MONEY for my art.

Re: Why we don't do Politics here.

Shouldn't the title of the thread be "Why we don't do politics here anymore"? Because we once had a private politics board and it was quite ugly. :lol:

Re: Stallion News

It's kind of hilarious and telling of the North American industry when the top 3 third year stallions are Take Charge Indy (exported to Korea), Declaration of War (exported to Japan), and Shanghai Bobby (Exported to Japan). Yeah yeah yeah, Take Charge Indy is coming back, I know. Right? It makes me...

Re: Stallion News

I don't think in this case we went looking for politics, although it sometimes seeps into remarks in the threads and forums. But in this specific case, politics came into horse racing. It's "news" however relevant or irrelevant we might consider it individually, it was reported/posted on a fairly v...

Re: 2019 Keeneland September

This has to do with yearling sales in general, but the Fasig Tipton mid-Atlantic sale catalog just came out, and two of the more interesting (at least on paper) Chrome yearlings will be offered there, and both have some recent gleam to the pedigree. The Formalities Aside colt is from the immediate ...

Re: Standout Losing Efforts

The 2004 Woodward was a race that didn't deserve a loser. Poor Saint Liam ran into some buzzsaws in his career, and he got his recognition eventually, but I think this effort was his best of all, as he made Ghostzapper work for every inch: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q5Y1EDBJ4lk I was trying to...

Re: PETA

If you're interested in orca captivity and SeaWorld, check out John Hargrove's book, Beneath the Surface: Killer Whales, SeaWorld, and the Truth Beyond Blackfish. He was interviewed for Blackfish but I feel like the book was a bit more moderate - he wrote extensively about his experiences and relati...

I'm back among the living, sort of. Finally out of ICU. Been here since the last message. They stick me in another room some time this evening. Glad to hear you're out of the ICU.

Re: Standout Losing Efforts

No one has mentioned Real Quiet's Belmont, so I will. I read a conspiracy years ago that Real Quiet actually did win but the New York stewards didn't want a California guy (Baffert) to win the Triple Crown so they edited all the photos and footage. I don't necessarily subscribe to this but I will s...

I’m surprised they’re selling her because I thought they wanted to keep her to continue on the legacy. Hip 336 is out of Daisy Mason, who is out of Leslie's Lady. A colt by Nyquist. Maybe he'll be more affordable? :lol: Looove the name Daisy Mason, because it's a Downton Abbey name . I don't think ...
