Re: Clever Names for horses

Well, he's not the best horse around, but I like his name. Marylou Whitney Stables bred, American Sparrow (Birdstone - Gulch Legacy, by Gulch) won his first race of the year at Mahoning Valley yesterday.

Re: 2019 Fillies + Mares

I hope that there are more folks around here watching this fine filly. Late Night Pow Wow won her 9th in a row yesterday, and would be 12 for 12 if she had not just missed in a race last April. Really fun to watch. www.bloodhorse.com/horse-racing/articles/232129/late-night-pow-wow-digs-in-to-win-bar...

Re: The WAR HORSE Chronicles

WarBiscuit, I saw your post on Princesa Dorada, and saw her results last night. She beat one other horse. She was 78 lengths back when she finished, the horse she beat was 79 lengths back. Hopefully her connections decide to have some mercy on her and not put her through that again. Wonder if Carib...

Along with Hogy , another old millionaire running this weekend is 11yo Slim Shadey , seeing if he can "right the ship" at Gulfstream in a claiming race. His last few races haven't been the best and I'm just guessing that if he does not have a rejuvenation of the sap pretty quick, he can start planni...

Re: The WAR HORSE Chronicles

I'm never particularly unhappy to see older horses continue to ply their trade - as long as they are healthy and sound, well taken care of, and still able to compete. Every once in a while, I'll see an entry that seems a little suspect. This coming Thursday at Camarero (2/14) sees the return of 13yo...

Re: The WAR HORSE Chronicles

Thanks so much Sparrow Castle, for the report on Straight Thunder ! We've sure followed him for a long time in this thread, and he was one that I was worried about - with all of that mileage. Sounds like he was about worn out and I'm grateful that he is safe now. Hopefully they get him back in compl...

Re: Jockey/Trainer News - 2018

Perusing the Laurel Park entries, I noticed that King Leatherbury has been missing for a spell. A little quick research finds that he is taking some time off - along with his horses - and will be back later in the season.

Re: Waiting for news on ...

I'd like to look at the fact that injured horses are vanned back to their barns from a more hopeful side. They get exams and various diagnostic scans done by their own vets. There are advancements in treatments for some injuries, so getting the horse back to their stall gives it a chance to be thor...
