The late Lucky Pulpit did very well today.

Fashionably Fast won the California Cup Sprint.

Ward 'n Jerry and Cono finished second and third in the Unusual Heat Turf Classic.

Sacred Rider was third in the California Cup Derby.
Lucky Pulpit is underrated.

Re: New Conformation Photos

There's nothing perfect in this world, not even snowflakes despite what we were told as kids. So I'm always loathe to criticize a horse. I'm super glad TCI is back in Kentucky where he will have his chance at better mares. Overall he's a handsome stallion in a plain brown wrapper. That said, he appe...

Re: Stallions and Mares Stolen in Attack on Al Shaab Stud

am i really that bad at explaining my thought process?? You were crystal clear. Your own words, "i wasn't attacking Chrome fans, specifically. i was attacking the crazy horse fans in general..." What do ANY fans have to do with those horrible incidents? The fact that you linked what, in your opinio...

Re: Why chrome was sold

I have always wondered about the whole idea of the better studs should have a homogeneous look to their offspring. I sometimes wonder if it is a more modern take on things when it seems most Euro stallions have several strains of Northern Dancer and most American stallions have several strains of M...

partly because of... THOSE racing "fans"... the "they're going to turn Chrome into a burger!" ones... i wonder how much strain these 2 attacks will put on selling/loaning/shuttling overseas. it was brought up after the first, but this is 2 in quick succession. What the heck do Chrome's fans have to...

Re: Stallion News

Thanks for the update Ridan. My heart breaks to know our champion is gone to another country. It’s been a rough year and following Chrome has been a bright spot in it. Just wish he was appreciated in his home country. :cry: You're welcome, PT. I'm very sad that he was sold, but am optimistic about ...

Re: Stallion News

The plane carrying California Chrome and his buddy, Alan Sherman, landed safely in Sapporo, Japan a little while ago. He now faces another 30 days of quarantine before going to his new home.

Great to see he's handling the winter well.
He's really showing his age now, but he still looks terrific.

Three-Year Tax Depreciation (all racehorses) Extension Signed Into Law

I wonder how this affects decisions about breeding, giving stallions more time to prove themselves, yearling sales, and so on.

Re: Favorite Horses of the Decade (2009/10 - 2019/20)

California Chrome, in many ways a hard-knock horse who overcame a lot.
All the horses who survived laminitis and colic to run and win again.
