Re: 2020 Fillies + Mares

Covfefe has been retired and will be bred to Constitution. I wish they would have raced her another year—what’s the rush? From the bloodhorse story....

Re: Taraz...

Racing horses at 2 isn't bad for them. I don't know which site it was but recently they published a report that showed that horses that raced at 2 breakdown LESS than horses who start later in their careers. Then again, some large frame horses (Zenyatta for one) have done quite well with being give...

For a country with 2 presidents, you think they could control stuff like that. Oh wait, that is democratic socialism at its finest.

Re: Report: Zayat Sued for $23 Million, Sold Shares in American Pharoah

Man, this guy has been on the brink of bankruptcy for 10 years. I get that 1% of the owners actually make money in this sport, but how can the owner of stallions like Pioneerof the Nile, American Pharoah, Bodemeister, etc. still be living in the red. Is he still active at any of the yearling sales?

Zarkava ---> Shamardal

Racing Post announced.
The stallions that the Aga Khan has chosen for Zarkava is to me, the standard for consistent and diverse top class pairings. Honestly, it's kind of surprising she has thrown only one group one winner.

Pedigree Query claims New Year's Day was bought by Shadai. When it was announced a Japanese buyer purchased him from Brazil, the buyer was kept confidential. If it was Shadai, why would they want to be confidential? Also he's not on their site (last I checked). It's been not so confidential that Sh...

Does War Front have special shoes on in the front? His hooves look strange to me for some reason.
It's hard to tell. Besides Algorithms, none of the Claiborne stallions pictured really seem to have heels, they look really flat footed in front.
