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

Seems they've FINALLY officially pulled the plug on Ziconic.
No word on whether he was gelded or what their plans are.

Re: Photos/News about Broodmares

I know horses generally do OK in cold weather, but doesn't a 21-year-old champion deserve a bit more shelter than an open shed? :oops: I can assure you that Sam-Son has a very nice facility in Milton and their retirees (both racehorses and jumpers) are well taken care of. I knew they were in Ontari...

Re: Photos/News about Broodmares

I just saw that above post on FB.

Does anyone know when or how Coolmore ended up with On Parade?? *Edit - I guess at Keeneland Nov 2015...
Surprised to see her in the retired field at 20 too.

Re: Derby Day Undercard

Another poor showing by Instagrand.

Makes you wonder if they should have kept him in training last year when he was hot, and aimed for the 2 yr old championship. At least he'd have a stud deal by now if they had...

Re: Korea Breeding

Not a very flattering expose out of Korea. If you were wondering where several imported horses ended up..... including 2 yr old sales purchases... Among his Ocala class, now four years old, Ace King wasn’t alone. Of the 50 bought at that auction that were sent to Korea—one stayed in the States to ra...

Oh wow. This is as big a defection as I can remember. Definitely bigger than I Want Revenge.

The cynic in me imagines he won't race again but they kept bringing Normandy Invasion back.
Well, they did just announce his stud deal already this week.... ;)

Re: 2019 Foals

@ Taylor Made Stallions Filly by Midnight Storm out of Terri's Pass (War Pass). Terri's Pass was the first foal on the ground for her sire, who we lost far too soon. It will be interesting to see what color this filly turns, since Midnight Storm is a nearly black horse, and the dam is gray. Several...

Re: Santa Anita 2019

Found this on Twitter....... someone made a chart of all the horses who've broken down with info on last races, works, racing surfaces, etc. I think all it really shows is how random this is. https://twitter.com/ukHolloway91/status/1106231139960795138 https://pbs.twimg.com/media/D1ofWzIX0AAARSz.jpg:...

Re: Sad state of breeding

I've been lurking for a while after taking a (several year) hiatus from posting, but this is a subject near and dear to my heart. I totally concur with the original assessment. I feel like we are seeing the effect of bad breeding practices. The American thoroughbred industry needs to enact some sta...

Re: horses with unique coloring/facial markings

Hey Ridan, My genetics may be several years out of date, but from what I have read it seems that in addition to dominant white, TBs have been genetically identified as carrying genes for both overo and sabino (and possibly splash too?), which are also spotting patterns. Sabino can be responsible fo...

Re: Stallion News

I have a question about coat color genetics and I'm posting it here because it pertains to stallions. Long River is a chestnut, but his sire is dark bay/brown and his dam is bay. Both of Mucho Macho Man's parents are gray, but he's bay, and I thought that gray was dominant? What is at play here? Lo...

Re: 2019 Foals

No kidding there are a LOT of fillies this year so far. :o Not really surprising, and I think you'll find it evens out as foaling season progresses. There have been a few studies done on gestational length, and they've found that colts tend to gestate longer. Thus, more fillies are born earlier :)
