Re: 2019 BC Classic

You have to wonder (or maybe just I do :mrgreen: ) whether or not phasing out the roads & tracks portion of the cross-country has been beneficial - in not taxing horses too severely before the demanding over fences portion - or if it in fact has had the opposite effect, by allowing horses who are pe...

Re: Stallion News

Have y'all heard about Green Gratto? Buckle in. This will be long. It's from DRF. So G1 winner Green Gratto (Here's Zealous) retired to Total Bloodstock Farm in NY to commence stud duties in 2019. He was apparently not able to impregnate mares. Efforts were made to combat his infertility, as is cus...

Re: The rise of Sunday Silence

Hopefully the 55 mares he did get this year will produce good runners/sales foals... but Shadai can afford to be patient with him, too, so there's that. 8-)

Re: Tragedy hits Santa Anita again

I kinda shudder to bring this thread back up, but... some interesting news about bisphosphonates in the horse show world. Tangentially relevant as one does find OTTBs in the HJ arena, though typically older than four. The USHJA is proposing a rule change that specifically targets bisphosphonate usag...

Re: 2019 BC Classic

I'm wondering if they're going after Cross Country Events too and other sports actually, never saw anyone complain about that. I know it's a bit of "what aboutism" what I'm saying now, but if they would want to protect horses they shouldn't just focus on a single sport. PETA is nuts anyway, most pe...

Mare - Tamale Molly?

Can someone with access see if this CA-bred mare is still around? https://www.pedigreequery.com/tamale+molly She caught my attention because my dog's name was Molly (loved her so much, had her for 17 years) and we called her Molly Tamale as one of her nicknames. I heard the mare's name one day years...
