Re: 2019 Preakness Stakes

Kudos to Bill Mott for putting his horse first. I'd rather a trainer care about his horse's health than run them when they are not at 100%. I swear that every time I read twitter comments I wonder if they really only care about the horse's safety/health right after they die. Bill Mott is one of the...

Re: American Pharoah's Children

Congrats to American Pharoah and his human team on his first (of many) runner/winners! I'm sure his entire camp is breathing a sigh of relief right now.

Re: Sad state of breeding

Where are they going to stand? If they don't explode all over the sales ring the stallions end up in Turkey, Korea, Argentina, Saudi Arabia or South Africa by their 4th year at stud. In fairness I think that's the point the original post was making. If a stallion doesn't yield an immediate return o...

Re: Dubai World Cup

So even with a 93ft (what is that, around 16 lengths?) head start they couldn't beat him. Absolute lunacy. Cheers to Arrogate and all his connections and here's hoping he returns home safely and stays healthy for the BC!

They get to be horses by being outside 24/7, although certain ones do come in for the evening. There was no way Charismatic was going to be saved e...
