Re: You

I just watched the Test Stakes (and learned Carson Hollow died the following year) and it made me want to figure out where You ended up. Looking at Pedigree Query I see she last had a foal a few years ago but is she still alive? It’s difficult finding information about her just because of her name....

What a shame about Alpha Centauri and Saxon Warrior, two very talented horses. Hope they are successful in the breeding shed.

Three of his colts have gone for $700,000, $625,000 and the $450,000 above. One filly also went for $650,000 who is out of a mare that has thrown a lot of blacky type with this stallion. And 'Martin Anthony' is a D. Ingordo pseudonym , so the colt today could be going to anybody. Goodness, I didn't...

Re: 2018 Two-year-olds

I'm surely rooting for my friend Tom Amoss to have a top horse, but Cairo Cat went 0.12 seconds faster, which begs the question....what was behind Serengeti Empress? Don't get me wrong, she's obviously very good, and could turn out to be a top horse in her division, but big margins usually have a l...
