I've been dreading this day. Lanes' End just announced that AP Indy has passed away.

Re: Clever Names for horses

Nice Guys Finish, half to champion Jaywalk and stakes winner Danzatrice. I imagine this was so that, depending on how he finished, the announcer would call "Nice Guys Finish second/third/last," etc. :D

Also, Annulment (out of After Thought).

Re: Taraz...

Agree with everything that's been said here. While I appreciate how much work goes into Oaklawn's track (I didn't know they took such great care of it, and so often, too), Taraz is still dead and that's all that matters to some folk. She was at the top of my list this year. Such a talented filly who...

Re: Stallion News

Regardless of the drama I thought CH was a nice horse on the improve who ran a really great race at those odds in the Derby. I thought he'd get better with maturity like another Lookin At Lucky did a couple years ago. Agreed. I noticed a stud deal hasn't been announced... I wonder how much interest...

Re: Report: Zayat Sued for $23 Million, Sold Shares in American Pharoah

A lot of the real smart, technical talk is going over my head, so I need it plain and simple: is Coolmore going to be forced to surrender/sell AP?

Eh. Not a fan but Alejandro is Spanish for Alexander, so I assume that was the connection. It’s creative I suppose.

Unique Bella had her foal by MdO this morning (or last night). I'm at school so can't post photo and I can't speak Spanish so I don't know the gender (saw it on Instagram).
It's a filly!

Tracking Progeny in other Countries

What is the best way to track a stallion's progeny in other countries?

I usually use the stallion registry on Bloodhorse.com and Equibase/virtual stable, but they're only great for following American-based offspring, and Twitter/Instagram can only do so much...

Thanks in advance!

Random question, but did anyone ever figure out that mess with Take Charge Lady's death? According to Twitter she is alive... and dead. Someone mentioned they could have confused her with her daughter, Lady Take Charge, but she was bred to Quality Road in 2020 according to members.breederscup.com. A...

Re: Is Omaha Beach worth 45k his first season at stud?

If you want War Front, The Factor has a very similar race record and he is available for $17,500. There is a lot of quality out there in the $40K to $50K range: Constitution, Liams Map, Hard Spun, Frosted, Distorted Humor, Tiznow. You can get The Factor for a bit less than his advertised fee too.
