Re: horses with unique coloring/facial markings

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/...

My mistake, I thought DI was foaled in 2003.

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:

Re: Kentucky Derby Selections

There comes a time when one must realize that overanalysis is counterproductive and only results in more confusion. I've liked Tax since last year's Remsen. I've liked Win Win Win since January. So I'm going with these two. Then I'll throw in War of Will, Game Winner, and Plus Que Parfait for some e...
