Re: Across the pond

Enable so brave kept fighting to the end- would not let Crystal Ocean get by. Great race by both horses. Her stiffest challenge yet and the great mare prevailed. I noticed Frankie kind of pushed CO over from the 3 path over to the rail. Perhaps this helped his momentum a bit? Race of the year so fa...

They ran 1-2 again: Enable holds off Magical to win the Coral-Eclipse.
That was a very exciting horse race--Enable is a beast- love her to pieces!

Re: Santa Anita 2019

I can't share details due to privacy policies, but I've worked with several of Hollendorfer's horses in a medical setting and I wasn't pleased with how they were handled. Some of them got very delayed and/or neglectful care. And it was Hollendorfer who believed that Songbird was fine until Mr Porte...

Re: Horrible Names For Horses

One Arab stud kicked his owner 15 feet through the stall, across to the wall of the barn and she hit about 7 feet up the wall opposite. Then he went back to scre...
