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

Take Charge Lady has both of her hands in the cookie jar in the Rebel - dam of Take Charge Indy, the sire of the winner of Division 1, and 2nd dam of the winner of Division 2.
Not too shabby!

Re: Azeri (gr. II) feat. 4 G1W

Midnight Bisou is such a lovely mare, and it’s nice to see her strutting her stuff. I thought that was a nice showing by Elate off an injury and lay-off. Hope to see them in the Apple Blossom again!

Re: Honor Code 2 year olds

Love him, I’m more excited about him over any other new sires this year!
He really reminds me of a bigger, scopier Storm Cat. Just a beautiful horse!!!

Re: Older Horses - 2019

Remember this guy? Ramsey's International Star had his first race (AOC) yesterday since 5/5/2017 and finished last in a field of 9 at Gulfstream. He's a 2012 H MGSW. www.equibase.com/static/chart/pdf/GP031419USA9.pdf Saw that. Hope that was just a long-time-away-needed-a-start kind of race... Nice ...

Oh, excellent. I don’t recall getting any more works for her, so she mustn’t be far along???

Re: Fly So High

It’s really a shame she was injured, and I’m guessing she’s retired. Too nice of a broodmare prospect with that pedigree.

Re: Sad state of breeding

In what world do Ghostzappers not run long and mature slow....? I kind of get your argument but he's a pretty terrible example. He's kind of the definition of being unpopular at the sales and having late bloomers. His top progeny are Shaman Ghost (broke his maiden March of his 3 y/o year, won Grade...

Re: Fountain of Youth

It’s funny, I told myself before this race the top 2 are probably more turf-oriented based on their pedigrees, so I guess I was wrong. I like the top 4 moving forward, and TBH I am hoping a BB horse doesn’t win this year because I am sick of him.

The always hard-trying Holy Helena won The Very One for the 2nd time today. I am a huge fan of this mare, nice to see her win another graded stakes. https://www.bloodhorse.com/horse-racing ... e-very-one

Re: Fountain of Youth

I would love to see Mott proceed to the Derby with a nice colt, so my heart is cheering Hidden Scroll. I guess we’ll see if he’s the real deal.
I also like Vekoma, who like someone said, he’s flying under the radar.

My heart dropped reading this news. What a goddamn shame, my heart goes out to his connections. It never gets easier seeing horses injured to a point of no return, but this really sucks because I was a big fan of this horse and was so elated seeing him back on the track. Now this.

Galilean won the Cal Cup Derby easily. Graded stakes next I would think.
I’m rooting for him because of his female family.

Dang...that was impressive. He has a beautiful stride and quite a stretch kick.
I look forward to seeing what this Scat Daddy can do on dirt.
He’s run on the dirt once - 9th in a MSW in November. Undefeated in 3 starts at GG on the fake stuff.

Disappointed for this, but glad it’s non-life threatening. Hopefully he comes back.
