Re: Zenyatta News

If only she traveled safely, Sea the Stars would be a priority breeding to consider. Talented and proven.

This horse had so much ability. And he is transmitting it to his off-spring. Watch his Arc again.

Re: Cathryn Sophia

Maybe a Next Generation fan shirt? :) It is yet another creation of Street Cry and MDO, especially when you add Rachel's Valentina in as a possibility.

As arm-chair race horse breeders, our skin in the game is our heart and if a bettor, your money--and life resources. But as an arm-chair breeder, we are allowed to see the outcome of various matings. With an extraordinary mare like Zenyatta , we are beginning to taste the pudding when her sons race....

Re: Ziconic

I am excited to see the red horse run and hope the light goes on and his beautiful pedigree is brought forward again. Despite the doubts about Cozmic One, I feel he will not disappoint. When all that testosterone is targeted forward, not in circles, he will be a warrior, like his dam. Stories told s...

Another earlier story, interview with Borell.

What do you think we need to do as an industry to create more Maria Borells and, on a basic level,...

That eye shape and expression is rather like the hooded eye of the Akhal Teke.

Here's hoping RunHappy comes out of his next race alive and Mr. Hess understands the responsibility he has to racing. Understands that medicating the horse with painkillers increases the risk to his career and once more, "a thousand eyes" are on the horse. And the people around him. There was a reas...

Re: RunHappy

I wonder about RunHappy too. If jogging the next day hurt him or not... It seems that if he was okay, we'd hear about it but not a peep. Or not that I've read. Yet now it is so long after the race we couldn't trust any information. Maybe the owners didn't want the horse to win? This is a worrisome s...
