Re: 2019 Two-Year-Olds

True. The $200k+ bids may not have been totally "live", but they still were under the reserve.


EDIT 22-Aug UPDATE - Liraz was scratched from the Maiden Claiming race when I checked at noon-ish today.
Update #2 - It was a veterinarian scratch, per the race notes

Re: American Pharoah's Children

Agreed. I suspect someone will pounce on her as a broodmare speculation if nothing else. A.P. hasn't been around long enough to have produced a lot of flops yet. IIRC Liraz is one of five 2017 foals produced off the American Pharoah/Distorted Humor cross, and the only runner from that cross. Basquie...

Re: 2019 Two-Year-Olds

Sort of an odd "first" - Liraz (filly out of Jemima's Pearl) may become American Pharoah's first offspring to be claimed . She's up for a $25,000 tag next Thursday at Gulfstream : http://www.equibase.com/static/entry/GP082219USA-EQB.html#RACE6 . Liraz went for only $33,000 in Keeneland's January All...

Re: American Pharoah's Children

Liraz must have some problem. That's a $25,000 claiming race. It's not even an optional claimer. Plunk down $25,000 and have a shot at getting her. I guess she never outgrew whatever it was that caused her to go for only $33,000 in January 2019 (Keeneland All-Ages sale) after being a $250,000 RNA a...

Do you think Hong Kong has physical issues or are they trying to find the right spot for him? I dunno for sure. Whether the cause is physical, mental-behavioral, or just "it's not perfect", he's certainly being Non-Runner'ed from far more races than seems typical even for an A O'Brien trainee. But ...
