Re: Clever Names for horses

I found a few when looking at the pedigrees of the Triple Crown nominees. In the pedigree for Kid Mercury: Chandelier (1987) by Majestic Light out of Gala Evening (Ire) Majestic Light (1873) by Majestic Prince out of Irradiate Gala Evening (1980) by Try My Best out of Paint the Town Nominees: Life O...

Re: Bramlage's Mongolian Groom report

Speaking as a member of the 'general public', i.e. I am not an expert horseman, have never owned a horse (but wish I could), I appreciate this report. It explains, to me, why it was so difficult to spot any lameness, why the horse kept being checked, and why X-rays wouldn't have helped (I know from ...

Re: horses with unique coloring/facial markings

I could be wrong, but this dude Coast of Roan (James Street) looks like he may have some "roaning" on him. You can see a white spot on his rump. His (very skinny) mama was also a lightly colored chestnut with tiny white spots. https://scontent-atl3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/72102951_2697653050255079_...

Re: 2019 Foals

Maybe I'm old school. Or just old. I just don't recall seeing this much white on TB of the past, and the seeming transformation into paints is kind of weird. Don't know how far back you go, but the whole "OMG white on them means bad blood and bad racehorse", IMO, probably has a lot to do with not s...

Re: Belmont Saturday Watchalong thread

With all the facts and figures being thrown about, I'm surprised no one mentioned that Justify is only the 3rd Triple Crown winner that was not a home-bred. The other 2 - Sir Barton (1919) and Seattle Slew (1977). So both undefeated Triple Crown winners were purchased at auction. (Sir Barton was pur...

Re: horses with unique coloring/facial markings

Regarding Milkie, if I remember correctly, the Jockey Club didn't want to register him, but his sire, Deer Lodge had a differently shaped front hoof that he passed along to all his offspring, and Milkie had the same same shaped front hoof, which proved his paternity.

Re: Derby Point Races 2018

Thought I'd add some data regarding month born. I went back through my info and found the birth months for all the NOMINEES to the Triple Crown races for 2014-2018. I don't have info at hand for earlier years, but thought this might be of interest. 2018: 360 early, 10 late, 370 total nominations. ea...

Re: DSLD: a hereditary disease

DSLD/EPSA affects a horse systemically, i.e. throughout the body, and affects the aorta and coronary arteries, per article at https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1459153/.

Could this be a cause of the 'heart attacks' that cause young horses to suddenly collapse and die?

Just a thought.

Re: horses with unique coloring/facial markings

I just watched a couple of the dam's race replays on Twinspires. She is dark bay/brown with a average size blaze and maybe some socks. Its pretty hard to tell with the quality but didn't see anything unusual and I was able to see both sides of her. Since both parents were solid, it seems that she's...

PAINTING THE SKY sure has a pretty head and those photos are wonderful. So good to see a Thoroughbred going on to a second career. The leader of the U.S. polo team visited Chrome toward the end of his racing career, so I wouldn't be surprised if some of Chrome's foals wind up as polo ponies. For th...

I know it was in 1981, 22 horses entered, 21 ran; Pleasant Colony won. Not sure what the circumstances were, though.

This was posted in the 'In Memoriam 2018' thread' - Dreaming of Anna, champion 2-year-old filly of 2006, died January 9 of a ruptured aorta. She was only 14.

It was originally reported in the DRF.
