Re: Horrible Names For Horses

https://www.pedigreequery.com/slimey Daughter of Quality Road- she has been racing at Saratoga in the past few weeks: Why in the heck would anyone name their horse Slimey? (it is pronounced like it is usually spelled: Slimy)- I don't understand how owners can give a horse such a terrible name. I fe...

He's Not Grey 28 Jul 2019, 9th EMD: bumped at the start but didn't seem affected by it until about the second or third furlong where he threw his head up while at full extension and kind of rocked for another stride before his jockey got him under control and pulled him up.

Re: Frosted's Foals

He's probably still at side - don't breeders wait a while before doing more than a foaling report? There were a bunch of Frosted weanlings in that sale, too. Some will probably show up at this year's Yearling Sales. Sex and Dams: F- All In With Aces F - Kiss the Lady C - Wave Theory C - Androeah F -...

Re: Frosted's Foals

She had a colt that is BC nominated so assume it is still doing fine. Thank you! Where is Distinguishable at now? I only found out about her being bred to him via the Keeneland Breeding Stock sale last November; she ran at EMD for the Racing Club the year before before being claimed (at a nice prof...

Re: Waiting for news on ...

I saw a tweet quoting the vet that said it was a catastrophic breakdown behind. Shades of Barbaro. If true, the Equibase chart caller was only guessing based on what he saw through his binoculars. Sundae on Sunday was 10 years old and hadn't ventured away from Finger Lakes except for one long-ago r...

Frosted's Foals

Because I'd really like to know if Distinguishable had a healthy baby and what his/her details are! :D

Also because I'm surprised no one else has started this topic.

Re: Rockport Birdie and a few others

I tried finding some information on them as well, but came up empty. Will continue with the detective work though - maybe something will turn up. Thought for sure that old Trelawny was heading into retirement, and was surprised to see the workout posted. Best of luck to him - he's a popular and goo...

Re: 2019 derby prep races.

Anybody buy-in? I did the first and the sire pool. Missed this one, tho, darn it. Anybody else doing the WinStar Fantasy Derby?

Rockport Birdie and a few others

I'm wondering about some from my virtual stable, plus a couple that I'm relatively sure are dead (but oddly enough Horse Racing Wrongs seems to be mostly ignoring Portland Meadows this season for some reason). The two I think are dead: I'lbeamonkeysuncle (pretty sure he died of a heart attack during...

Re: Rally Cap Rudy & Toody Muldoon

Maybe they are giving him a break? Turf Paradise only races October to May. He does not have a death listed on the Jockey Club, though honestly that means little. The owner/trainer have recently started horses in what I guess is the fair circuit, or maybe even rodeo circuit. I never heard of these ...
