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

Snap Decision (Hard Spun-Salute-Unbridled) won over the fences at the Spa today by 38 1/2 lengths. ( I think he's found his true calling.) Half to Mr. Speaker; Personal Ensign is the second dam.

Re: 2019 Two-Year-Olds

Gozilla (Flatter-Atlantic Dream-Stormy Atlantic) looked fantastic today in a maiden race at Saratoga. Myrtlewood shows up way, way back in the pedigree.

Re: 2019 Keeneland September

I've spent all morning looking through my dresser drawers and under the couch cushions trying to scrounge up enough change to buy hip 498. ;)

Re: Saratoga 2019

Tom's d'Etat was just the easiest kind of winner today in the Alydar. Second dam is a full sister to Candy Ride. I was sort of hoping for a better showing for Backyard Heaven; about a year ago I thought he was going to have a top class career.

Re: Stallion News

Such distressing news for certain. I wonder if the stress of travel and quarantine is too much, will he just remain in New Zealand permanently. I know Ribot ended up in the US permanently because of issues flying him home. Ribot was pretty much nuts, right? An argument was advanced that Ribot's beh...

Re: Suburban at Belmont

Tried to watch on NYRA but have to open wagering account which I prefer not to do. Catholic Boy better on the turf I think. Preservationist very impressive, happy for Jimmy Jerkens a really good trainer who cares a lot about his horses. I don't have a wagering account at NYRA, but then I joined man...

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

Nobrag Justfact (The Factor/Jostle) won the Mystic Lake Mile S. at Canterbury tonight. The Factor is turning out to be a good stallion. He ranks in the company of a lot of more expensive sires when ranked by high Beyer performers: https://www.drf.com/breeding/sire-list-beyer/category/all/1/year/201...

There's almost no speed in this race, so I'm trying to convince myself that Joevia can pull off a Da Tara. :lol:

Need to rename the track FAST Sandy. :P We could easily see a new stakes record in the Belmont.
This is a nice enough field, but I'd really hate to see one of these horses replace the big guy in the record book.

Re: Belmont Stakes Race Day Card

Midnight Bisou wins the Ogden Phipps over Come Dancing and Mopotism. I couldn't watch the entire race (because the very second I tune into Belmont I'm needed at work) but it looked like she stalked in third/second for most of the way. Come Dancing ran the half in 45+ and looked like she was just lo...
