Re: Foals of 2020

That was a rough foaling. Poor foal was stuck pretty good at the hips, but they managed to get it out. Smart idea to give the foal oxygen, and it’s alive Yes, that was a struggle. 3:30Am here and I was just begging her to go down earlier and get this over with. I think she almost made a 360 on the ...

Re: Foals of 2020

If anyone is watching, Magical World is foaling right now on foal patrol Yes, figured tonight was the night. Her body changed shape quite a bit from yesterday to today. Sunken in around her hips and that very V pointed belly you see right at the end. Curious why they got her up mid labour and were ...

Re: Siblings (and offspring) of well-known horses

Max Player , by Honor Code out of Fools In Love, won the G3 Withers. Max Player is half to G2 winner Seahenge , and the dam is half to millionaire International Star and full to 2 other stakes winners. About time he got a stakes winner on the board. I bet Lane's End are breathing a sigh of relief.

Re: New Conformation Photos

Candid shot of Take Charge Indy by Housatonic back in the states. Anybody see any issues with him? Obviously you can't tell from a photo but a user on here was claiming he was lame and did not need to be mounting mares and they would never breed to him. Not him, but I did see a video of More Than R...

Re: Foals of 2020

@ Sequel Stallions First foal for Destin is a colt out of Jurere (Take Charge Indy). In an interesting twist, the baby looks like grandpa (or at least he does for now, he could possibly gray out). The colt's third dam is Weekend Surprise . Colt was bred by Saratoga Glen Farm. Totally a grey baby :-)

Perhaps I missed it, but went back a few pages and did not see this news posted. Shackleford has been sold to stand in South Korea: https://www.bloodhorse.com/horse-racing/articles/237833/shackleford-sold-to-stand-at-stud-in-korea It was posted the day it was announced, in the Stallion News thread.

Re: Is Omaha Beach worth 45k his first season at stud?

If you want War Front, The Factor has a very similar race record and he is available for $17,500. There is a lot of quality out there in the $40K to $50K range: Constitution, Liams Map, Hard Spun, Frosted, Distorted Humor, Tiznow. You can get The Factor for a bit less than his advertised fee too.

Re: New Conformation Photos

Call me crazy, but I'm feeling more Storm Cat than Galileo when I look at The Ferryman. Maybe it's a bit of 'Cat fire. ;) Whichever great bay sire you think he resembles, IMHO that's a really handsome horse. I'm drawing a blank on his race record, and I'm too tired to head over to RacingPost to do ...

Re: horses with unique coloring/facial markings

I've mentioned this before in the black thoroughbreds thread but from what I've seen researching black horses Europe seems to want to register everything that isn't chestnut as bay. No dark bay/brown or even brown, absolutely no black. There definitely aren't many horses registered as black in Euro...
