Majestic Harbor is a G1W by Rockport Harbor and 1/2 to another G1W and he only got 18 mares in IN in 2018. But I obviously don't know if there were other factors at play.
Might not be a ton of mares in Indiana to breed to.

I thought euthanized animals can’t go for meat. Administering drugs that kill you... doesn’t seem suitable for meat.

Re: Retirements 2019

G1-winner Force the Pass is retired and will stand in Maryland at Anchor & Hope Farm for a reasonable $4000 fee. Totally think this horse is a steal at that price, given his pedigree, conformation and ability. He was a “force” at 3, and may not have been as brilliant later on, but I won’t forget his...

Even though the party appears to be over, Catalina Cruiser edged Giant Expectations in a thrilling stretch duel to repeat in the Pat O'Brien.
That was a good run by Catalina Cruiser - the pace was hot, he was wide, looked like GE was going to get by and Cruiser found an extra gear.

Re: Travers 2019

I’ve certainly never had any thoughts of malice towards the horse. I just have come to the conclusion that he doesn’t have a discernible turn of foot. Does he need that to win a G1? No but it does mean tinkering needs to be done. I trust Mott if he thought that bad luck was the root cause of Tacitu...

Midnight Bisou has just been outstanding as she has matured. Too bad for Elate, she really deserved that win. Two incredible mares!

The race was impacted by heavy rain, but Dunbar Road was still best. :D

Tone Broke makes it 2/3 in the Canadian Crown by taking the Breeders' Stakes!
I really like him, he ran impressively.

Although he didn’t win any of them, I think Ivan Dalos’ colt - Avie’s Flatter - ran really courageously in each race.

Re: The 'Runs Like a Girl' thread

I’m looking forward to the Alabama - Dunbar Road was my longshot pick in the Oaks but she didn’t make it in. I think her and Guarana are the two top fillies in this division (sorry Serengeti Empress).

I can’t see either of those horses being around next year so I’m just going to pretend like they are already retired.

Gozilla (Flatter-Atlantic Dream-Stormy Atlantic) looked fantastic today in a maiden race at Saratoga. Myrtlewood shows up way, way back in the pedigree.
I love his pedigree. Stormy Atlantic and Flatter both very underrated horses.

Re: The Arlington Million

B & M, imo, is the leading candidate for HOY... and I know lots of people will disagree... but 4 dominating G1 wins, and I would say it’s going to take a damn good horse to beat him (if he gets beat) in the BC Turf. The horse reminds me of his sire - tough, talented and competitive.

Bricks and Mortar is off to Shadai after the Breeders' Cup.

I was hoping he'd stay in training for Ascot next year.
Bummer. He’s stunning and a helluva racehorse.

Re: 2019 Two-Year-Olds

I just cannot get behind a horse who comes from a sire line of big, slower maturers and with a grandsire with zig-zag legs... who runs THAT fast. How long is he going to be around???
