Re: Sadler's Well

I agree that burying anything is weird AF. Burying the dead has advantages. For one thing, it's a more efficient way to return nutrients to the earth. Plus you don't want to leave stuff above ground to attract all sorts of scavengers. Ever seen 6 vultures on one roadkill squirrel in the middle of a...

I didn't realize until today what an interesting blaze Kingly has. It reminds me of a piece of jigsaw puzzle.

Re: The rise of Sunday Silence

Another bonus about Karak is that she defeated colts, which I enjoy seeing. Not that it should be a big deal, but people in the U.S. still have irrational hang-ups about putting fillies in open races.

I wonder if the new Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf Sprint will be a goal for Karak?

Re: The rise of Sunday Silence

To Tachyon, lurkey mclurker and everyone who loved Deep Impact, I am so heartbroken at his untimely loss. There never are adequate words at a time like this, so I will just make a symbolic offering in tribute to both Deep Impact and his sire, Sunday Silence: https://i.pinimg.com/originals/3e/ae/ea/...

Whoa. Sad day. He was too young.
Coincidentally, Deep Impact was 16, the same age as Sunday Silence when he passed.

This article is a couple weeks old but I think it's cool because it discusses the history of Bashford Manor.

Here's Sweet Return (Elmaamul x Sweet Revival, by Claude Monet), a chestnut British-bred with rabicano markings. He won the 2003 G1 Hollywood Derby and several other graded stakes. He entered stud at Ocala and later moved to Indiana. https://184cda7661b9609f94b0-f196c43f59505ef65734afae659eea38.ssl...

I noticed Have At It in yesterday's Dixie Stakes at Pimlico is a fine specimen of liver chestnut.

From a bettor's perspective that's why it's so difficult to make a future wager on some trainers, "he's acting like he's going to be sick" is a new one!
I don't know how many people here have seen "Mean Girls" but Mott's phrasing makes me think of that one chick's tiny little fake cough. :lol:
