Re: Random News about Breeding and Breeders

It’s dumb advertising to say “the only two living TC winners”... because the last winner before those two was born in ‘75. LOL, no sillier than how they'd been advertising American Pharoah early on as the "only Grand Slam of racing winner in history". No mention that there was no Breeders Cup back ...

Re: Racing in Japan

The biggest surprise was that the colt, Grosser Bar, is by Harbinger (GB) and *not* Gold Ship. :lol: I'm guessing he'll have two handlers the next time out... finished 8th this time. He'd have an apt. lined up for tomorrow to be minus two things if I owned that dangerous little sh*t.... From what I...

Re: horses with unique coloring/facial markings

^^ She's chestnut, going grey. Called that when she was born, she was highly hyperpigmented. Good to see her growing up. Colerful Chrome is registered as a chestnut. Can that be changed later if she does begin to gray out? I'm assuming they can update that. Happens sometimes when they register befo...

Little more info in the Blood Horse article: Yes, it was a 3 year term. "The economy in Chile is not as strong as it was during those first two years, there has been a management change at the farm, and the horse has just bred five seasons back to back," California Chrome bred 145 mares his first se...

Re: Stallion News

That post really says nothing.
More Than Ready has been shuttling every single season, to Australia, for like 17 or 18 years in a row now.
Can't see a young stallion needing a rest this early. Curious.

Re: Stallion News

It's been 2 SH seasons for him. I also heard that he may not have attracted as many mares there as hoped. Well then you heard wrong. Unlike the U.S., where something upwards of 20k Thoroughbred foals are born each year, Chile produces less than 5000. Chrome was received like a rock star there both ...
