Re: PETA Accuses Two Trainers of Cruelty to Horses

All the comments Blasi should get banned…he is under the DIRECT SUPERVISION of Asmussen. It is Asmussen's stable and he is, ultimately, responsible for any actions against horses in his stable. They should both be banned with the emphasis on Asmussen..

Re: PETA Accuses Two Trainers of Cruelty to Horses

The lack of acceptance I am reading of the behavior shown is APPALLING. Are you people serious? How can you be ok with one single part of that video? Every aspect including Stevens and Lukas who are HOF members is simply disgusting. Just in case you think I am some PETA yahoo….I am an owner and bree...

Re: PETA Accuses Two Trainers of Cruelty to Horses

The Thunder Gulch incident was 25 years ago. I do hope Stevens isn't doing today what was probably commonplace a quarter of a century ago. Lying, being immoral, unethical, and lacking any integrity is never an excuse in any day and age. Period. I don't care who is doing what and when. An ethical pe...

Re: PETA Accuses Two Trainers of Cruelty to Horses

I am disgusted at the video. Some key points: - Asmussen and Assistant are unethical pigs - Gary Stevens who I thought was a class act..admitting to using an electric shock in race -Lukas admitting to the use of electric shock and laughing about it For all that attack Zayat…please know that as owner...

Re: 5 crosses to Northern dancer?

Ok, Tbird!!! I will take that bet and we'll see what their books look like……:-) You proved my point completely..all your fillies are Northern Dancer/MP bred. So, that is exactly my point. That most mares will be Northern Dancer Bred like yours when they go to stallions that have triple northern Danc...

Re: 5 crosses to Northern dancer?

Tbird…I said commercial mares which is what those young stallions will see…..guessing you breed to race with your mare band? I, too, had a similar mare base but I didn't breed to sell! ;) If you wanted to take a bet with me on the majority…say 90%…of mares Oxbow and Paynter see will be Northern Danc...

Re: 5 crosses to Northern dancer?

Yeah, I am looking at Paynter and Oxbow among others…. 3 crosses to Northern Dancer within 5 generations with a Mr Prospector. So, potentially, their foals will have 4 or 5 or possibly 6 crosses to Northern Dancer. Of course, outcross would be best but I would venture the majority of mares are North...

5 crosses to Northern dancer?

I was looking at the peds of some top promising young stallions. I am seeing they are bred triple Northern Dancer. It will be hard to find a lot of Northern Dancer free mares. Most mares have at least one or two crosses to Northern Dancer. I am curious if people have seen up to 5 crosses to Northern...

Re: U.S. And Foreign Racing: Similarities And Differences

Baroque…..I think foreign horses have much better manners ON THE WHOLE!!! From what I have seen, they are taught to be well mannered and obedient and not given excuses simply because they are racehorses. Here in US, when I am at a track, I have to BEG trainers to discipline my horses as they just sh...

Re: OBS Juvenile Sale

Halo..I have news for you..go back and look at all the babies they say that about and how many actually pan out…not many. Look at the partnership formed by Lukas, Zito, and was it Baffert? They spend like 17 million and got one graded stakes horse out of a crapload of expensive babies. But, I guess ...

Re: OBS Juvenile Sale

It looks like the market is definitely on the upswing. The pin hook flip resulted in some HUGE monster profits. I get a kick reading the consignor and buyer comments…."will definitely be a classic horse"…."will be early"…."will go two turns"! LOL I laugh my head off every time as anyone who has bred...
