Re: Jockey club exploring 140 mare cap per stallion

I think this is a great idea, it will put more value on the resulting foals, better quality mares for the stallion, and so often each year I hear these KY stallions are exhausted going to the breeding shed. I even think any stallion over 17 should have a limited book.

Re: The VENT Thread

I sure hope we don't have more heartbreak and disaster at the Camarero Race Track when Dorian hits landfall in Puerto Rico. Hopefully horses are being moved inland to higher ground. Praying for no deaths!

Interesting.
Yeah that’s what I thought, never heard of him. Had to look him up and he’s in Oklahoma for a 1,500 stud fee, geeze. She should have gone to KY or CA to get bred.

Can someone find out who Fourstar Crook is getting bred to? She was sold last year and I believe went to Japan. Thanks in advance!

Re: Battle of Midway

WTF is going on at Santa Anita, 3 horses dead in 24 hrs. I sure hope there will be questions asked because us racing fans need answers! Not that 1 horse is more important than another but these owners just lost their dreams and Battle of Midway is a high profile horse that will be no longer. He prov...

Goodbye Nick’s Honor, we will miss you. You’ve always been a gentle mare, and a great mother to your babies. Your 2019 Nyquist filly is happy with her nurse mare and she will carry on your legacy.

Re: The VENT Thread

I'm venting that I don't have a white Christmas this year! Simple as that. Blessed that I am healthy, and all the good that I've had this year. Experienced a parental loss this year that was the hardest thing to get through and accept.

I am so upset about the comments regarding the euthanasia of Soaring Empire on The Blood Horse article. I work on the farm and I saw this animal struggle with his blindness.

My dad does not have to struggle anymore with Alzheimer's. He lost his battle early this morning, 3 days before his 89th birthday.
Love you forever dad.
