Re: Stallion News

I don't care what time of the year that upper photo was taken; that horse is in poor condition. And if that happened during quarantine, what the hell are their quarantine conditions like? A horse that is being cared for properly shouldn't end up looking like a refugee from Camerero after the hurric...

What happened to Go Big Or Go Home? IIRC, I saw him in the post parade of a race at Saratoga last weekend, and noticed his nice pedigree. :(
Broke down Weds in the 8th and later euthanized.

I wish they would get Take Charge Indy out of So. Korea. After seeing pictures of them breeding mares with a huge bandage on his hind leg, I have worried about him.

Tachyon: Deepest condolences to you and to all racing fans in Japan (and indeed, racing fans everywhere). To lose Deep Impact and now King Kamehameha in such a short period of time is heartbreaking and a huge loss for the sport. They will both be greatly missed. Thank you. It's a very sad day. Both...

Re: Waiting for news on ...

"Collapsed" and "failed to fully revive" sounds like either some sort of cardiac event or extreme reaction to the very warm day. I saw a lot of horses being vigorously hosed down as soon as their saddles came off, so I wonder if heat and/or humidity were factors. :( I saw a tweet quoting the vet th...

Re: Horse is SUING abusive owner

I read about this and am upset over it. If this becomes a regular practice. No one will own horses or sell them . Everyone has a different definition on the word abuse or neglect. Its opening a can of worms that i believe will harm horses in the long run. Im trying to look at the big picture. This ...

She was found distressed in her stall at Saratoga, sent to a vet clinic but died there of acute blood loss (per NYS reports) :( :( Accuse blood loss? WTH? Someone didn’t pay attention. Poor...
