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.

Today I learned there's racing in Mauritius.

I also learned that Mauritius exists.
Same to both. :lol:
A friend of mine is from Mauritius and owns an OTTB... her grandfather regularly imports South African race horses to the island to run :)

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. Not sure how that is comparable, tbh. I will say one of the biggest hurdles I can see with such a project is the fact...

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.

Re: Stormy Liberal gets trainer switch

Did I dream it or isn't there at least one country that has such a program for horses? I.e. a retirement fund for each individual horse. I feel like it would be a great aftercare initiative, and there's multiple potentially viable ways I could see it being done. A percentage could be collected from ...

Re: Matings 2019

will be interesting to see how many of the last Deep Impacts will be sold at auction vs kept by their dam's owners.

Also find that Durmente seems to be standing in. Surprised Heart's Cry isn't getting more love.

Re: California Chrome to Japan

Top horses with successful siblings exist but nice horses like Chrome rarely ever have siblings that even begin to accomplish shat they did, so I fail to see how Faversham and Hope's Love's success or lack thereof affects him a lot. While on topic, it's even weirder how breeders rejected SS because...

Re: California Chrome to Japan

Racing in the U.S. desperately needs people to engage with the sport/industry at all levels. It needs fans. It needs people to fall in love with the horses. It needs people to dream about maybe buying into a horse. It needs people to fill the stands to see their favorites run. This beautiful, shiny...

Re: Stallion News

a single breeding can yield anywhere from 15 to 320 straws if I'm not mistaken (depending on quality, concentration and size of the straw) and a single dose can be anywhere from 1 to 8 straws. So depending on how they choose to go about it, it may not put more strain on a stallion. Ground collection...

Mikki Punch is stunning. Question for the color gurus here. Is he a Palomino? If not, what causes such very blonde mane and tail on a chestnut?
I think it has to do with a flaxen gene?
That is correct.

She also nicks A with Pharoah. But I agree, you've got Tapit and Medaglia d'Oro, and as we saw with Pioneerof the Nile recently, there's no guarantee they'll still be here 2 years from now.
