Re: Stallion News

This Fiber Sonde seems like he’s doing ok in WV for $1,000. Unbridleds Song x Silken Cat (so he’s a half to Speightstown). He never ran a race. Beau Ridge Farm supported him with their own mares and once his foals started winning stakes races people took notice and he's been getting 50+ mares a sea...

Re: World Records?

Long ago back when Thoroughbred Champions was a "real" website and not just this forum it used to have a list of world records. It's archived here https://web.archive.org/web/20100612193015/http://thoroughbredchampions.com/library/worldrec.htm but was last updated in like 2002 (that 7-Oct-12 date by...

Re: 2018 Vox Populi Award

I wrote in Hopper. I'm still a tiny bit sad he won't be running next year. Foiled Again is a great idea too. Some words about Foiled Again from Moira Fanning of the Hambletonian Society: To me, Foiled Again epitomizes harness racing. He wasn’t a flashy 2- or 3-year-old but he kept going out on the ...

Re: 2018 Vox Populi Award

Since none of the candidates listed are particularly suitable for the award I propose giving it to a Standardbred this year, Foiled Again . At age 14 and facing mandatory retirement at the end of the year, the richest harness horse in history won his 100th race and then some and made a farewell tour...

Anybody remember Comfort?

Per their website, Comfort began his career as a stallion at Double Tree Farm in New Mexico this year. Got 27 mares.

I presume he's also being bred to QH mares.

So why was Japan sold? Anyone know?
Lack of interest maybe? 16 mares in 2018.

He sold for $50K to...Santa Escolastica, agt. for Tupacireta SRLAG.

So I'm assuming a stud farm in South America.
Tupacireta is associated with Haras Santa Maria de Araras.

Re: Accelerate vs Justify HOTY

Call me a tinfoil hatter, but Justify's win will always be a little tainted for me with the Audible situation and it bugs me that it fell out of people's minds so quickly. Maybe not enough to put an asterisk by his name in the list of Triple Crown winners, but combined with his drastically condensed...

His stud fee is $5,000 live foal, with shares and lifetime breeding rights being offered.

He's an absolute steal at that price.

Re: New Conformation Photos

Call me crazy, but I don't think Orb looks that fat. His neck is huge, but that's not uncommon. He looks a lot like Malibu Moon and the A.P. Indy tribe tend to get swaybacked, often at a fairly young age. They also tend to let down quickly and carry a lot of flesh. "Carry a lot of flesh" = fat. Sta...
