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 ...

Re: Sad state of breeding

True... but horses like Raise A Native and Danzig used to be the exception instead of the rule, and they still had to prove themselves with the quality of their offspring before they became popular influential sires. Nowadays it seems people START OFF by assuming that the less a stallion has raced,...

Re: Santa Anita 2019

How is he fired for this and Haskins remains employed for enabling that wacko rescue girl? I'd really like the other side to this, because the way it looks to be right now is that it looks weird AF. Didn't Haskin retire a few years ago and just does freelance work for them? I'm not 100%, although I...

Re: Sad state of breeding

If the stallion line survives somewhere in the world there is always the possibility it could make a comeback in the US. I mean look at the Halo line. His line is surviving in the US, because Southern Halo was reverse shuttled to the US for a few seasons and sired More Than Ready while he stood here...

Re: Honor Code 2 year olds

I'm really excited for this freshman crop of stallions. Some years the freshman crop just tend to be extra special and I'm hoping this is one.

Re: 2017 Names

I'll be waiting for this one to be named: 2017 TAPIT x WINTER MEMORIES colt ... was an OUT at the OBS 2YO sale after posting a 22.1 (which is considered slow for that sale). He is a full to the nice graded filly Winter Sunset. Oddly enough, this one's chestnut with a nice splash across the nose and...

I really like Elate. I'm happy they are giving her another year to prove herself since she got injured last year.

Re: Stallion News

It kills me that Einstein wasn't loved by breeders. He was a really good racehorse on any surface, raced through ( IIRC ) his seventh year and retired sound, handsome as heck and had a good temperament. Also provided an interesting outcross with his Spend a Buck bloodline. I think he's only 16 or 1...

Re: Sad state of breeding

I know the Jockey Club remains firmly against AI, but I'm beginning to think AI might be the only way to save some of these rare bloodlines. AI would make the situation worse. The vast majority of owners aren't going to send a mare to a stallion simply because he has outcross or rare lines. He need...
