Re: 'Stamping his get'

A lot of MDOs offspring have a certain look. I was looking at the picks of Zenyatta's MDO filly and saw very little of the dam in her.

A Thoroughbred wiki?

Does anyone find it surprising that there isn't a wiki for Thoroughbreds? I mean, it seems like a great resource for fans and people in the business.

Re: Matings 2016

I had the opposite problem, I kept forgetting that Samantha Nicole was a racehorse and was expecting to see her bred. She has more value as a broodmare.

I get why they're sending her to Bernardini, with RV and all, but I can think of other stallions I'd like to see her go to first.

Re: Liam Neeson defends NYC Carriage Horse industry

The real stink of the deal was that the stables to be built in the park hadn't been approved yet, so the industry would have been blindly believing that they'd be taken care of in that regard, and that the city wouldn't turn right around and tell them to get out once the original stables were sold. ...

Re: Would you eat your own horse?

I don't think I could. If I were starving and had no choice, obviously, but otherwise no. We can't bury our horses on our property because of limestone and the water table being too high, and there isn't anywhere nearby that does cremation (either a private cremation where you get the ashes back, or...

Re: California Chrome

Some of the fans are just so creepy, like the people who "talk" to Zenyatta on her site and call themselves her foals "aunts." The fans who constantly cry over the horrible decisions owners make, all motivated by greed of course. CC has those in abundance, the people who say he needs to retire becau...
