Re: 2018 Keeneland September Yearling Sale

I think that the physical on these youngsters may be as...or more...important to buyers than their pedigrees. As we could see from all those Joe Neville Twitter photos of yearlings, many of these babies still have baby bellies, big heads and high rumps. It's a gamble to buy one and hope that it wil...

Well, War Front in particular hasn't been overly reliable.

Re: The VENT Thread

Straws aren't the problem. People are. Creating laws, putting factories out of work for in-demand products, is not a solution. It's busy work for politicians. The UK has a 25 year plan for plastic polution, please wake me with an update in 2042, thanks. https://www.globalcitizen.org/en/content/uk-t...
