Re: New Conformation Photos

I'm far from an expert but his shoulder angle looks very nice. I've always understood that the shoulder governs the forearm stride (happy to be instructed). You're right. He does have a nice shoulder. Rule of thumb: In your mind's eye, draw an imaginary line from the top of the withers straight dow...

Hopper is a great-looking horse and a real hard-knocker of a racer. I like him a lot.

Re: 2018 foals

@SSilence86, thanks for posting the news and link to Chrome's latest colt. The foal is quite lovely. Many of the Chrome foals we've seen here in North America are impressive and look a lot like him.

Phantom is quite spectacular. If he can run some, he will acquire tons of fans.

Re: Stallion News

Taylor Made Stallions has reported that California Chrome covered 133 mares in 2018. He will cover an estimated 100 mares in Chile. So far in his young stud career, Chrome's foals are representing him very well. Here's one of Taylor Made's latest featured foals. https://scontent-iad3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/...

Re: Siblings (and offspring) of well-known horses

California Chrome's Brother Faversham Breaks Maiden Put in a call to trainer Art Sherman and you still hear the longing, although more than a year has passed. "It's been kind of quiet since Chrome left," Sherman said. "I still miss him." June 21 brought relief for the octogenarian who conditioned t...

This is the first California Chrome foal bred by Haras Sumaya at their Kentucky farm. The colt is out of Brushwork by Discreet Cat.

Re: Stallion News

The videos of Forty Niner are so heartwarming. He looks amazing for his age, and looks content.

I wish more farms would exercise their stallions under tack like they are doing with Creator.

Re: The rise of Sunday Silence

Yoshida is interesting from several points of view. One is that physically he appears to be more of a Northern Dancer type even though ND is only 5x5 in his pedigree. Another is that Tony Bin, the sire of his paternal granddam, had Hyperion in his third generation. This is because Tony Bin's dam was...

Re: The rise of Sunday Silence

Well, when all is said and done, I will always love and respect Sunday Silence, both for what he did on the racetrack and at stud. And I will always be deeply disappointed that such a great horse has never been respected in the home of his birth. Sometimes the elite know-it-alls really don't know an...

Re: The rise of Sunday Silence

Ok, then compare only Sunday's first crop to the get of Easy Goer and you will find no contest. Compare Easy Goer to, say, Scat Daddy. Both died young and had only a short time at stud. You're being obtuse and needlessly defensive of SS. If you say so, but it cuts both ways. Sunday Silence was born...

Re: The rise of Sunday Silence

Ok, then compare only Sunday's first crop to the get of Easy Goer and you will find no contest. Sunday was a smash hit right from his first crop. As a Californian, I well recall the disdain the eastern racing establishment had for Sunday Silence (indeed for most horses based or bred in California un...

There is no question whatsoever that Sunday Silence was one of the greatest breed-shaping Thoroughbred sires of the last half century anywher...
