Re: Foals of 2020

@ Northview Stallion Station First foal for Hoppertunity is a filly out of stakes winner Rhythm In Shoes (Rhythm). The filly is a half-sister to 7 winners. The dam's broodmare sire is Fred Astaire , a name I don't see in a lot of pedigrees. https://www.paulickreport.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/01/u...

OK has anyone seen a Justify without a blaze yet?
Most of the mares have had white markings too, though. I don't see it as that unusual??

Re: New Conformation Photos

Don't see anything wrong in the hind, but boy is he upright through the fore pasterns . He's always was. I saw him last Sunday and he seemed to be walking fine. Hasn't there been rumor/speculation about him being lame since before he returned to the US from Korea? :roll: You'd think they'd be put t...

That's teeny tiny pocket rocket racemare Melody Lane (Orfevre) in the foreground, saddle cloth #1 and one of the favorites, Red Genial (King Kamehameha) saddle cloth #2. Melody Lane was 9th (too long for her, I think) and Red Genial finished 7th. vid clip of the G2 Nikkei Shinshun Hai at Kyoto (turf...

Re: Bramlage's Mongolian Groom report

I think the biggest a-ha for me, being a layperson essentially even though I have a lot of riding & horse experience - I wasn't very knowledgeable about bilateral lameness and its effects, which seems like it might be a lot more prevalent than one might suspect but stays hidden by its nature. I alwa...

Re: Bramlage's Mongolian Groom report

When I fractured ribs from my horse flipping over on me, nothing showed on the xrays. The healed fractures showed up on the xrays I needed 6 months later when I had another xray taken. And my x-ray (I broke a rib coughing once when I had pneumonia) was read clean at the time, only for me to get a p...

Re: Bramlage's Mongolian Groom report

I had to stop after the radiographs and description of how the injury unfolded; it made me sick to my stomach. On the one hand, it's totally understandable how MG "slipped through the cracks" - because he exhibited no other signs of anything wrong aside from stiffness. (But now I wonder about all th...
