I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

He's doing such a good job!

Wonder how old this is or where it was taken. If this was recent it must be a foal bred on southern hemisphere time for X reason.

It’s a few years old at least, I’ve seen it resurface around the start of the jump season a couple of times now.

I adore this recent photo of my boy Seeking the Soul, who looks like an Arabian, and also a little toy horse, in this photo.

The Aga Khan's Zarkava.........check out her "span".....this is why she was said to have wings.

She retired undefeated, and when she won the Arc, she was the first filly to win the Arc in 15 years (since Urban Sea in 1993.) Timeform gave her a 133, 1point less than Curlin, who was rated top horse of the world at that time....But "Many forget she was receiving a 3lb sex allowance, which if applied to our list, would bring her out as the same horse as Curlin [as the #1 rated horse in the world]"

Thank you! I wanted to watch this again.

Zarkava is one of my all time favs. In every way,

Not a photo but I like this video of Karakontie at Gainesway, when he rears and punches the air like he's Rocky training. He does it at 0:39.

Omigosh, that was so cute. :D Thanks for sharing.

I also like the Seeking the Soul photo myself -- I saw it on Twitter and also thought he looked Arabian.

Higher Power (Medaglia d'Oro) is really cute and I hope he continues to progress in 2020.

Danzing Candy (Twirling Candy) munches on a leaf at Rancho San Miguel. He was the busiest California stallion when he entered stud there in 2018.
