Re: Honor Code ...

^^ Agree to disagree. He had one run in him , and frequently had to be got into by the jock to prompt that drive. Wasn't uncommon to see him getting the stick to start him moving. Didn't answer my question about run from last types as sires though. Surprised to see the stallion no one wanted, Tonali...

Re: Honor Code ...

Not shocked by this early lack of success, but you'd think they'd have bred him to enough speedy 2 yr old sprinting types to get him off the mark a little better. Realistically, he had ZERO early speed and was, IMO, a one paced grinder who ran from last. Have there been any successful stallions of n...

Re: horses with unique coloring/facial markings

That is his dam. What an odd statement. Allanglos, I'm not sure why that qualifies as "an odd statement." Here in the States, if you see a TB foal with a chunky buckskin mare, that mare is usually a nurse mare. Most TB breeders here don't breed for color like that. It is an odd statement, given it'...

Re: Random News about Breeding and Breeders

It’s dumb advertising to say “the only two living TC winners”... because the last winner before those two was born in ‘75. LOL, no sillier than how they'd been advertising American Pharoah early on as the "only Grand Slam of racing winner in history". No mention that there was no Breeders Cup back ...

He'd have an apt. lined up for tomorrow to be minus two things if I owned that dangerous little sh*t.... From what I...

^^ She's chestnut, going grey. Called that when she was born, she was highly hyperpigmented. Good to see her growing up. Colerful Chrome is registered as a chestnut. Can that be changed later if she does begin to gray out? I'm assuming they can update that. Happens sometimes when they register befo...

Re: Stallion News

That post really says nothing.
More Than Ready has been shuttling every single season, to Australia, for like 17 or 18 years in a row now.
Can't see a young stallion needing a rest this early. Curious.

Re: Stallion News

It's been 2 SH seasons for him. I also heard that he may not have attracted as many mares there as hoped. Well then you heard wrong. Unlike the U.S., where something upwards of 20k Thoroughbred foals are born each year, Chile produces less than 5000. Chrome was received like a rock star there both ...
