Re: Stallion News

I was wondering if Korean racing, like China, doesn't like horse names with any reference to war or violence. I've seen quite a few horses bought for Hong Kong racing that had their names changed because their original moniker had words like War, Battle, Revolt or Rebellion. IIRC, the War Front col...

Re: New Stallions of 2020

I would guess his sire and the female family is what made him a stallion once he got a GSW. Personally loved him, and would absolutely breed to him at $7500 versus some of he higher dollar new sires.

Re: Horse Racing Is Its Own Worst Enemy

It is illegal for animals to be rendered if certain drugs were used within the withdrawal period. You can look up milk,meat, etc withdrawal periods for any drug, and it is why certain drugs can't be used for "food animals".

Re: Santa Anita Autumn Meet

Just saw the article where Steve Knapp was fined for Emtech's blood coming back with an excessive amount of Bute in his last race at Del Mar. Surely, there is a faster way of getting these blood test results back, and if there is a positive on the first sample maybe the horse should not be allowed t...

Re: Matings 2019

No kidding. It's hard out there for middle distance stallions who aren't by Galileo and/or standing at Coolmore's main division. I'm surprised that Poet's Word got so so few. Just my opinion, but I don't think Shadwell is the best stallion operation. With all of the money and group/graded winners t...

Re: American Pharoah's Children

I understand that inbreeding in animals is a little different than humans (because survival of species, or whatever), but I don't understand what would possess someone to send a daughter to her father or a mother to her son. Somebody sent one of Mr. Prospector's daughters, Wincloc's Millie, to him,...

Sharmadal is not flopping at stud. He's the sire of Lope de Vega, who's turning into a very good sire himself. He's the sire of 23 Group 1 winners including Blue Point, Speedy Boarding, Pakistan Star and Casamento He's had three Grade one winning two-year-olds in Europe this year; Pinatubo, Earthli...

Re: Baltimore vs. Stronach Group

Love the plans. I think it is the best of the compromises. I also think it is useless sentimentality to bemoan the turn of the track. Old Hilltop lost it hill decades ago. I doubt many people or horses who had raced on the track in its infancy and youth would recognize it currently anyway.

Re: Stallion News

Exactly. Constantly breeding to horses that clearly had physical issues that curtailed racing is just going to keep adding more frailty into the DNA. And then everyone blames the tracks. This is why break down stats should have been kept all along. The Santa Anita track back in the early 80s was a f...

Re: Stallion News

With the caveat that things are still quite early, it is interesting to look at the CI versus the AEI for two year olds for the top 15 freshman sires as well as a couple of others. Also put down the CI versus lifetime two year old AEI of top two year old sires, and also Bodemeister out of curiosity ...

Re: Keeneland November 2019

Well a similar cross from that female family of Ocean Colors produced Perfect Alibi and that female family does seem to do well with Nasrullah sirelines. I would be more worried by a bit of a spotty produce record and the lack of talent in the named foals. She is also coming in barren apparently, so...

Re: Keeneland November 2019

It is strange to me that they still list mares with a covering sire when they are believed to not be pregnant. Honestly, by this time, it is pretty obvious whether or not they are pregnant if vets are checking with ultrasound or labwork. It would just make more sense to leave covering sire blank wou...

Re: Stallion News

Apparently it is the National Hunt sires that have those crazy high numbers, but at least I think those breeders will breed through the summer and into the fall since they aren't all that concerned about early development on the flat so aren't a slave to the January 1 birth date.

On a completely different tangent, I am wondering if it was ever publicized why Minardi, the stallion, died while at stud in New Zealand at the age of 14? Anyone know?

Re: Heartbreak...another horse dies during Santa Anita race

If he was racing that often, then he wasn't likely working. And if he had raced at Los Al and not worked at Santa Anita, then unfortunately, that is why he would not have been watched by the new committee at Santa Anita at more than a trot or walk.

Re: Photos/News about Broodmares

Based on the way they usually collect embryos at this time, it would be hard to just get the "extra" one and not the other.
