Re: Breeders Cup Discussion?

Is Express Train going to the Juvenile? I've seen some articles about moving forward on the derby trail, but nothing about the Breeders Cup.

Re: 2020 Stud Fees

My dumb question: Why are some fees listed as 'private?' Is it because they don't want to scare breeders away by listing some exorbitant sum? That's one reason. It's also possible that a stallion's fee turned out to be overshot, but the connections wanted to save face rather than lower the fee... I...

Hollendorfer banned from Breeders Cup this year. Good riddance.
Because Hollendorfer is the only trainer to have had a horse breakdown this year (or ever)? Seemed more like a scapegoat to me.

Re: Breeders Cup Discussion?

Two weeks out, expect major works this weekend for most runners. On cue, Dennis's Moment, goes 5f in 58.60, best of 65, and a full second faster than the next fastest work at the distance. Look forward to any video on XBTV, but he's gotta be one of the keys to multi-race plays, doesn't he? I would ...

Re: Stallion News

So sad. I wonder if Coolmore will try to bring in one of his sons or a similarly bred young stallion to try to help take over his book. Like they did when George Washington was infertile. You know SD's book was huge. The more I think about it, the more I think this would be difficult to do. Holy Ro...

Re: 2019 Fasig-Tipton November Sale

I'm still mad she decided to breed Songbird to Arrogate after initially looking at Pioneerof the Nile, and now we will never get to see that mating happen :( I get genuinely bummed whenever I think about the mares that were never bred to PotN -- and never will be.

Re: 2019 Fasig-Tipton November Sale

I wondered the same thing! I thought she made a comment, something like she had to dip into her broodmare fund to purchase her. She said she spent all the money she had set aside for the fall broodmare auctions. Somehow I think if she really wants a mare, she'll find the money. Have any of her pric...

I really like the move for Animal Kingdom. I think he will cross well with a large swath of the mare population there.
Agreed. I hope he’ll be a hot commodity there; I wasn’t very present in horse racing when he first went to stud, but from what I’ve gathered, breeders didn’t go crazy for him.

Re: Stallion News

Yes thank you lol! As an aside, Cairo Prince is actually several spots lower than Bodemeister on the National sires list but he is #3 second crop sire. And about American Pharoah - his yearling average is more than twice his initial stud fee, he was #1 for a while on the First Year stallions list, ...

I’m happy about the Tacitus news. He deserves the chance to grow into himself more and show what he’s really made of in 2020. I suspect he might be another Gun Runner/Accelerate in the making.
For sure! He's already proved he has talent and of course he has those bloodlines.

Power Move won her debut at Belmont! Her second dam is Distaff winner Pleasant Home, and her dam is a half to Magical World. Lovely family!
