I was trying to find something on Smooth Roller too, and can't find anything. It's been almost 1.5 years since he last raced.

Anyone?

Re: Waiting for news on ...

Bronze Age , the favorite in the Sunland Derby, stumbled badly at the start. He recovered and got up to contend for the lead but, then on the backstretch, slowed suddenly and backed up through the field. Was far behind the field when he went off camera, and I don't think he crossed the wire. :( The...

Once in awhile Posse is the sire of a very good G1 horse. Not often, but it happens. Caleb's Posse, Kodiak Kowboy and now Mind Your Biscuits. Here's an article about Posse. Seems he shuttled to Uruguay last year and didn't return to the US for the 2017 season due to a disagreement between his owners...

Re: Dubai World Cup

I'm glad that Long River won. The seven-year-old has a beautiful pedigree (A.P. Indy x Round Pond ), so I hope that he's headed for a good farm when he retires...which I hope is soon? I wouldn't be surprised if he stays in training for another year or two. Look at Reynaldothewizard, Krypton Factor,...

Yes, I remember Pyro. He's standing at stud at Darley in Japan. I hope he gets some good runners. He's by Pulpit.
