Along with Late Night Pow Wow that makes two graded-stakes winners for him so far this year, plus the top WV-bred 3yo Vic's Pick. With the nice purses on offer for WV-breds and how much...

After watching the races today nobody can say that they haven't made changed to the main track. When's the last time a SA Derby was won in 1:51? And an impressive 1:51.
Gormley won it in 1:51.16 in 2017. Admittedly a not very impressive one.

Re: Santa Anita 2019

Also, LosAl has no turf course, so maybe half the races Santa Anita cards would not be run. That means half the racing stock sitting in the barn...or shipping out of town. Hard times for all the backstretch workers and vendors. :( They could send the turf horses to GGF. Nothing is impossible. I see...

Re: Siblings (and offspring) of well-known horses

He is. It's funny that some of these very well bred horses end up in hunt country. Funny Cide's 1/2 brother was at Shawan years ago. There were several Tapit's yesterday. One of them won though I can't remember who it was. It's nice to see them turn up out there because it's a great place for photo...

Re: horses with unique coloring/facial markings

It's interesting that both his sire and dam are plain bays with just small stripes. Wonder where his color came from? Wasn't Southern Phantom like that? I mean, came from parents with relatively little white? I know Bodemeister has a stocking but still. Bodemeister has a big wide blaze as well. He ...

Re: The Rebel Parts I and II

I have a genuine question about the use of whips. I understand that a whip needs to be carried because you need it to control the horse if it begins putting itself, the rider and possibly the rest of the field in danger (e.g. coming across into the path of another horse). But does whipping a horse ...

It kills me that Einstein wasn't loved by breeders. He was a really good racehorse on any surface, raced through ( IIRC ) his seventh year and retired sound, handsome as heck and had a good temperament. Also provided an interesting outcross with his Spend a Buck bloodline. I think he's only 16 or 1...
