Re: Top Ten Lists 2020 Kentucky Derby

Having watched my favourites two years in a row get mugged due to that auxiliary gate I'm traumatised and will welcome the lack of PTSD this year :lol:

Re: Stallion News

How very sad that the beautiful Empire Maker is gone. But he outlived many in his lineage. Dr. Fager, Fappiano, Unbridled, Pioneerof the Nile, Royal Delta , etc., all died fairly young. Rest In Peace you big, beautiful boy. 😢 19 is still fairly young. But I was just thinking about that. It should b...

Re: The Jockey Club & AI

Allowing AI would likely give way to cloning (which even if the JC tries to fight, there's precedent set when the AQHA was taken to court and forced to register clones).

Re: Is American Pharoah a turf sire

The no winners doesn't paint the whole picture given he has several graded (and even G1) placed runners on dirt, he's knocking on the door, and as some have pointed out, some of his best bred offspring haven't started yet.

Re: Stallions and Mares Stolen in Attack on Al Shaab Stud

They've been asking for help to get the horses out for months but I just don't think it was ever possible. Its sad. Where there is a will, there is a way. Unfortunately, it doesn't sound like the international community who could've helped, had the will. Just really sad. I am not sure the horses wi...

His neck is....bleh. Maybe it will shape up with time and breeding mares.
I thought the same. Initially I was wondering if he was a little ewe-necked but looking at his crest I think it's just a lack of muscling.

I also learned that Mauritius exists.
Same to both. :lol:

Re: Stormy Liberal gets trainer switch

I hate the overuse of the term rescue - it's a feel good marketing term that has branched out into its own market. Unless the horse was in mortal danger or an abusive/neglectful situation it is not a rescue. You just bought an OTTB, or perhaps rehomed it. An owner/trainer donating their horse to an ...

Re: Stormy Liberal gets trainer switch

Humans also have personal circumstances that factor in to caring for the elderly in a way horses do not. There are also a lot less racehorses in the USA than there are elderly folks.

Re: Interesting Horses for Adoption

Not sure if he qualifies as "interesting" in the eyes of most, but certainly I find him interesting. Mido , a freshly gelded 2yo, unraced son of Cairo Prince, out of a Freud mare. No known injuries. https://www.pedigreequery.com/mido https://scontent-yyz1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/79004397_33410058559...
