Re: Day 2

Late to the thread, but here goes: My mood/attitude seems to vacillate between, "I'm okay; I will get through this" and "I can't handle this/The world is ending." I'm fortunate enough to at least have a job where I can work from home but it gets lonely not being in the company of another person (th...

Re: In memoriam 2020

[If you are referring to the pretty white $125,000 filly, she refused to leave her box. Aw gee. This is a heart breaker, She was paralyzed with fear. Eck eck eck. I can barely read the word "fire" and not have a visceral reaction since Australia. I would imagine it's like that for all of us. How ca...

Re: In memoriam 2020

Clovis Crane Thoroughbreds in Pennsylvania lost 15 horses in a barn fire. They saved 7. Crane bought the white Lucky Pulpit x Pashionforfashion colt (his last foal) so I hope she's one of the 7 or was in another barn. :( If you are referring to the pretty white $125,000 filly, she refused to leave ...

Re: The Saudi cup

If there were Olympic athletes involved, then that may be why the FBI started looking in to the compounding pharmacy to begin with. An excellent point. MediVet appears to have been quite integrated across a number of high-level disciplines. Phelps Media Group, which labels itself as an "internation...

Re: The Saudi cup

All of this is obfuscated by the fact that like 95% of regenerative "medicine" is complete nonsense that does more harm than good. So I am very curious to find out what the substance actually is and how it improved performance. Based on the dex connection, I'm guessing it was a potent anti-inflamma...

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...

Re: Taraz...

Exactly. Not a friend of PETA, but training accidents still need to get counted (finally) and not just get swept under the rug with the magic "get out of jail free" card of being "just" a training accident. The word "just" wasn't used anywhere in my post. Nor was there anything about "sweeping stuf...

Re: Pedigree game

Yes, sort of. Meaning I will have to plug in these data and try to replicate the steps you outlined. I did, in some of my attempts get all the way to Fairy Bridge, Northern Dancer, and Sadler's Wells on the male side of the pedigree, but then was unable to make the next leap. Between this, that, or ...

New one up. Is this to hard? Would you prefer I did a closer generation? I just feel going to generation 3 or 4 makes it super super easy.
I concede defeat. Not sure if I am going about this the wrong way, or what.

Re: Taraz...

So so terribly sad. 4 breakdowns since Sat at Oaklawn is very concerning. First of all, training accidents are not the same as racing breakdowns. As for track safety, few people know that EVERY YEAR, Oaklawn digs out its entire racing surface of dirt, sand and silt to the base, and replaces portion...

El Areeb

He got knocked off the Derby trail by injury, then tried to come back in April 2018, but after a good beginning was "tired, steadied, eased" finishing in last place. No further mention after that.

Re: FT Winter Mixed

Yeah, apparently a California Chrome filly was born at FT and entered the ring before she has had a chance to enter a pasture, and all the pics are celebrating it as though it is some great thing. I am happy that she seemed to be born with no complications, but seriously, the mare's last cover date...

I'm interested, I just have no idea. :lol: I recognize lots of names in the 5th gen tho so I'm not completely useless? Maybe?
Well, no luck here either. I guess I will just have to wait until you (or somebody else) comes up with the right answer or until Flanders gives us a hint.

Re: Pedigree game

Also interested, but likewise, no luck yet. But, not quite ready yet to give up. My guess is that - with luck - the answer can be found from certain very common sires NOT being represented.
