Re: Zenyatta News

Finally, a Storm Cat line stallion for her. Nothing against Bernardini or Tapit or War Front or MDO, but this mare needs some serious speed infused into her. Still holding out hope for Uncle Mo. what does she match up to City Zip with? Maybe even Speightstown. As much as it would make me fangirl sq...

Re: Arrogate

Could it be that Arrogate is a very carefully -- one might even say delicately -- managed horse who was able to put together a short winning streak strung out over about eight months, and is not the "monster" people touted him to be? Just askin... Go back and watch those races. Ordinary horses "car...

Re: Ben's Cat

Two horses that make me sick to think about, simply due to their unfair fates - Lost In The Fog and Star Over The Bay.
Still makes my stomach turn.

RIP Ben's Cat. How awful he was only able to enjoy retirement for a month. My thoughts are with his connections, current and former.

Re: 11 year old after 6-1/2 year layoff

that owner's story was not posted online when I posted this. And there's no torch involved. Abuse that happens to horses in racing should always be brought to the attention of all. I have no problem re-posting when I see it. Things can always be improved, and that doesn't happen unless everyone sta...

Re: 11 year old after 6-1/2 year layoff

If your horse wins stakes races for you, and you can't provide him a home on your farm afterward, then don't own horses. Get a fake plant or something. . Really? So some of the biggest stables in racing should just quit and buy a bunch of plants because they don't have a farm for all their Stakes w...

The notion that this abscess is genetic related is hilarious. Horses abscess all the time. It's likely from the unresolved issue he had in April that kept him from the Derby.

Great day of racing and it sure felt crowded. Too bad I overheard people in my section talking about never returning, in light of the whole obstructed view thing.

Thanks to Fox Hill Farm's generosity, I won two tickets to sit with Victoria in box seats! I'll also be able to be in the paddock for Songbird's race, and the Winners Circle should she win!!! Unbelievable!!! I just landed in Toronto and in tears.
