Hard Not To Love wins the Santa Monica easily over Mother Mother and Zusha.
That was a powerful finish. You've got to love the time they took with this mare.

Re: The Gelding Thread

Surprised to see the 9 year old gelding, Life in Shambles, in R6 at Adquduct today (he was 2nd). He's graded stakes placed over the course of his career and has kept some pretty good company sprinting. Hope he gets a good retirement soon.

Re: He may be able to save lives: the disease that claimed empire maker

Here is a summary of a paper that was published by this group of scientists from Cornell, they appear to be the leaders in this area: https://www.vet.cornell.edu/research-departments/labs/equine-immunology/our-current-research-cvid-horses And if that piqued your curiosity: http://europepmc.org/artic...

Re: Stallion News

Pernicious sickness also means deadly sickness (pernicious = deadly), it may have nothing to do with an equine version (has it been documented?) of pernicious anemia as described. Which isn't to say if there is some kind of autoimmune disorder involving platelet development in this line of horses (S...

Opps! That's embarrassing, although Japan is a bit closer :D . . . . . . . . . and he should get credit somewhere!

Re: Horrible Names For Horses

The name also ruins a superb naming history on Slimey's dam side. It started with Oratorio (bred to Verbatim, no less) five generations back and continued through Right Word, Words of War and Verbal to Slimey's dam, Argue. Has Argue had other female foals to race that have had names more in keeping...

Re: Bramlage's Mongolian Groom report

The Bloodhorse article failed to include the fact that Bramlage found a “pre-existing injury in MG ‘s left hind. There was a stress fracture in cannon bone. In fact, both cannon bones. ??????? The first paragraph of the BH article says (bolding mine): "Mongolian Groom, who suffered a fatal injury i...

Re: horses with unique coloring/facial markings

There are few things the equestrian community likes more than infighting about whether or not a horse is in pain due to X tack or discipline. Not infighting about equine biomechanics on a racehorse forum/Horses with unique coloring/facial markings, LOL, just an observation. And as noted above, I sa...

I have noted that you don't like my avatar, and it's ok. Now please come back to the topic. Thank you. Actually, I said I was in pain looking at it, LOL.

Re: horses with unique coloring/facial markings

Cisco - forgive me for this, but your avatar is painful to look at. That poor horse has his neck forced so short (he can't use it as a balancing rod properly) and his mouth is gaping because he's pulling against the bit trying to get his neck out. It is awful. I don't want to argue about this but p...

Re: 2019 Three-Year-Olds

I ain’t afraid of no long eared rodent. Rabbits are lagomorphs, not rodents. Thank you for the correction but literal correctness was not my goal. On our little farm we do battle, to various degrees, with various four-limbed creatures consisting of mice, rats, rabbits and squirrels. I refer to them...
