Re: horses with unique coloring/facial markings

Thanks for digging up all of these photos of Ambiguity and her immediate family, everyone. I just assumed she was a genetic anomaly but it's been quite incredible to see all the white and blue eyes on the dam, the half-sister, offspring, etc. :) There was a NYRA runner with a big blaze and one blue...

Re: Siblings (and offspring) of well-known horses

Doesn't the "Comparable Index" (CI) try to show what the mares have produced with other stallions? Theoretically a great stallion should have a higher AEI than CI (if I'm understanding correctly) but of course this calculation can also be skewed if a stallion is bred to mares who have already produ...

Re: G2 Risen Star(s) 1 1-8th Saturday @ Fairgrounds

I think, at this point, it is fair to wait a few weeks before saying anything about FG winners as more than a few will likely end up DQed.

Filly Ray Cyrus , f. (Exagerrator - Onebadkitty, by Street Cry) :lol: :lol: It is funny but I think its a horrible name. Given the sire and dam's names, I think they could have come up with something really clever. It makes me envision a cat who growls and acts mean but really wants petted. The fir...

At last, definitive information about Chrome's illness thanks to the Paulick Report...https://www.paulickreport.com/news/bloodstock/california-chrome-has-minor-bout-of-enteritis-in-japan/ Is anyone here familiar with enteritis in horses, its causes and prognosis?

Re: FT Winter Mixed

Yeah, apparently a California Chrome filly was born at FT and entered the ring before she has had a chance to enter a pasture, and all the pics are celebrating it as though it is some great thing. I am happy that she seemed to be born with no complications, but seriously, the mare's last cover date ...

Re: G2 San Vicente 7F Sunday @ SantaAnita

Well if anyone can get a natural miler to stretch out, it is Baffert. I have always found it interesting that Baffert's horses seem to rebreak and are usually pretty reluctant to give up when running on the lead. It is likely something about the way they are trained and maybe a mental make-up that h...

FT Winter Mixed

I have to say, I am not agreeing with this new media trend of highlighting the new foals on the grounds. Honestly, I don't think mares within 1 month ( or really 2 months) of their due date should be allowed to be catalogued at the sales. It is just not good husbandry to put a mare in late pregnancy...

Re: G3 Sam Davis 1 1-16th Today @ Tampa

Who is Biancone and what does he have to do with legless reptiles? Vials of Cobra venom, something that can be used as a potent nerve block, were found in the fridge of his barn several years ago. I believe he claimed he did not know what they were and that his vet had asked him if he could store i...

Re: The rise of Sunday Silence

If Shadai wants a horse, they certainly don't sit back and wait... And if they can't buy what they want, they work to breed it themselves instead. 8-) Considering how well Deep Impact did with Storm Cat mares, it was a no brainer for them to go out and get a Storm Cat line sire to service the Deep ...

Re: G3 Sam Davis 1 1-16th Today @ Tampa

8/1 seems like a fair price for Solo Volante to negotiate two turns. Hope you bet him. , Yep thanks. Was 7/1 for most of the warmup, but I guess "they" waited til the last minute to bet and hammer him down to 5/1 paying $13.60. A winner is a winner. It's not like fishing where you can throw 'em bac...

Re: South america stallions

The main countries have studbooks. It helps to read Spanish and I guess Portuguese for Brazil, but you can usually get the gist even without knowing the language.

Re: Stallion News

Chrome certainly appears to have found his moment of zen in the Far East. As for the halter- pretty sure you can just open a jar Mrs. Pasture's cookies by the stall door, and the halter can be placed within a few seconds.

Re: 2020 Three-Year-Olds

Thousand Words (Pioneerof the Nile) won the G3 Robert B. Lewis...but there was some bumper cars so I think there'll be an inquiry. High Velocity almost took it gate-to-wire and I think it was Royal Act who made a huge run at the end on the outside. EDIT: Nope! Royal Act was second and High Velocity...

Midcourt (Midnight Lute) won the G2 San Pasqual over Two Thirty Five and Combatant.

It's nice seeing Espinoza being successful again after seeing him physically "decay" after the accident.
What an odd choice of words.

'Chrome never seems to take a bad photo. His reliably-proud posture and alert expression are a photographer's dream. :D The stallion manager at TM really didn't like how high Chrome holds his head and, while he always looks proud and alert, it makes for a less-than-ideal conformation shot.

Re: The Saudi cup

Make no mistake, the invites are likely as much about the big owners in racing as any handicapping on dirt. They aren't giving away that much money just to have the less well known of American dirt racing show up. They want to turn this into a fete to attract the jetsetters like Dubai did.
