Re: Ben's Cat

I am beyond heartbroken. I've seen almost every race he's run in the past seven years. Being a native Marylander, he was the epitome of a hard knocking gelding who may not be in a bunch of grade ones but dominated where he was best. Dirt, mud, grass it didn't matter. He tried everything and won on i...

Re: Songbird

Too pretty to leave only in photos. The second one now belongs to Mike Smith. He was very happy with it. I gave it to him at Delaware Park.

Re: Waiting for news on ...

Race 3 at Tampa Bay.
#10 My Girl's Success fell in the stretch causing #1 Run Indra Run to collide and fall as well. It looked horrible but the chart says they were both vanned off.

Re: Ben's Cat

I am actually surprised he wasn't being retired to Old Friends. Not a bad shocked but shocked since everybody and their brother (that isn't a broodmare or stallion) seems to retire there. Hope he has many happy years with the Welkers :) A horse like him might well get bored living at a "retirement ...

Re: Breeders' Cup alters distance of two turf races at Del M

Too bad it wasn't 5 furlongs when Ben's Cat was at the top of his game. He was great at that distance.

Hats off to the winner but I thought Classic Empire ran like a champ, would really like to see him win another big 3 year old race this year. As did I. He ran a great race. Certainly he is much better than his Derby performance. Though all the trouble he had in that race he ran his heart out in Bal...

I found last night's season ending to be okay with ending the series but hated the way they did the Clay / Shelby thing. I don't know if it will be back but I really do enjoy the show.
