Re: Breeders' Cup Watchalong Thread

I'm pretty sour how they conduct themselves over pretty darn everything. I still personally believe they pulled Audible from the Belmont in order to maximize changes for Justify. They wouldn't have had 6 months between his races if there wasn't something wrong. If he had been back immediately compe...

Re: Breeders' Cup Watchalong Thread

Honestly, as long as a non Winster/China horse racing horse wins I'm pretty good. Rooting for Mendelsohn, Catholic boy Basically this was me the whole time. I hate to root against a horse because of connections but I just can't...want them to win. I know that's petty but I can't help it. I've had a...

Re: 2018 Fasig-Tipton November

Re: Love the Chase-not surprised. The full siblings to California Chrome haven't done much. It doesn't bode well for Chrome's stallion career.

Re: Justify

The most valuable thing about Justify is that he is a Classic-winning, Dirt-running son of the late super sire Scat Daddy, and who won the Triple Crown. That he won another G1 besides the TC also adds to that. That he is undefeated doesn't add anything in this case. It'd be far more meaningful if h...

Re: When choosing a mare...TrueNicks or conformation?

I had heard that it wasn't as common any more. It's a nice trend, surprising in light of how the sales emphasize perfect conformation etc. Anyway, in your own opinion/experience-would you describe any current kentucky stallions as having "perfect" or maybe "almost perfect" conformation? The most "p...

Re: When choosing a mare...TrueNicks or conformation?

It's rare to see a perfect stallion. So most breeders are looking either for faults they can live with, or faults that don't double up on what their mares might have that needs correcting. Looking at a horse, you often can't tell what has caused the crookedness--for the most part either genetic or ...

Re: When choosing a mare...TrueNicks or conformation?

So, now that the fireworks have calmed down a bit... Genuine question here. How would a breeder/prospective breeder judge whether a horse has genetically crooked legs(like Curlin and his mother) or somatic crooked legs(Chrome in the womb? Haven’t see his mother) I also hear a lot of foals have corre...

Re: When choosing a mare...TrueNicks or conformation?

For what little it's worth, I'd like to second Flanders. My reasoning is more from the sport horse world though. A foal with decent conformation will yield a foal which, even if they can't run, will be easier to re-home from an aftercare perspective. From another perspective: take all TrueNicks with...

Imgur.com works really well with less ads and less annoyances.

Anyway, between F-T November and the Keeneland November books, I'm expecting some real fireworks! (IF you can, throw in more photos of the Honor Code filly? ;) )
