Re: California Chrome to Japan

Idk about you all, but I'm tired of the American thoroughbred model. I'm thinking I need to just focus on European, Australian and Japanese racing. At least their horses are bred for longevity and run for more than 6 races. Not the Europeans who also retire their top 3yos every year like clockwork ...

Apparently Msawish is sold and no longer at Taylor Made according to a person on FB. Anyone verify?
That would take them from 5 stallions to 3 in less than a week. Yikes.

Re: New Conformation Photos

Harry Angel looks like he's been a stallion for 10 years already, but of all those new photos, I think him and Mind Your Biscuits look the best. Cracksman is a carbon copy of Frankel!

Re: Matings 2019

They’ve really gone off War Front, perhaps partly because several mares failed to get in foal to him last year. From a high of 30-35 Coolmore-associated mares going to War Front a couple of years ago, only half a dozen went to him this year, including only 2 lesser-light Galileo mares. Contrast tha...

Re: California Chrome to Japan

I'd be more hopeful about him being a big hit in Japan if Shadai was buying him, not Arrow Stud. I am sure he will get quality mares, but the best mares and the stallions with the best chances are own by Shadai/Northern Farm/Oiwake Farm. I foresee the usual American non-Shadai career for Chrome. 20...

Re: California Chrome to Japan

The "Bring Chrome Home" fanatics are going to lose their minds with this one. Though, honestly, this really is a bummer to see them sell him so soon. He won't even have progeny on the track for another 6-8 months. And after all of the hullabaloo about the Taylors buying into him while he was still r...

Re: Keeneland November 2019

Really surprised Take Charge Brandi only went for $3.2 million when she sold in 2015 for $6 million. Also being that she is a 1/2 to Omaha Beach, she is only 7, her first foal is only 2 and her female family(being a grand daughter of Take Charge Lady). In 2015 and 2019, Hill n Dale is listed as the...

Announced a lil while ago,..Yoshida to Winstar
While he is an interesting stallion, I think they were a bit ambitious on the stud fee.
They have to get as much $$$ as they can before they sell him to the JBBA in three years.

Re: The Melbourne Cup (G1)

10 of the 24 entries either are trained or were originally trained by Joseph or Aidan O'Brien.

I don't know what to do with this information but there you go.
