Re: Older Horses - 2018

From DRF..... $500,000 earner Point Piper, 2016 Longacres Mile winner, claimed for $10,000 by Wong, to be retired Good luck to the new owners. PP's dam, Imagine, won the Oaks in 2001 and traces back to Marguerite. GC can arguably be considered a sire of sires. I've seen a lot of horses with much le...

Re: 2019 Stallion Fees

Get Stormy gets a bump from 5K to 6.5K. He's been getting some nice horses, so it's deserved, IMO.

Re: Stallion News

According to his stallion register page, Gemologist has been moved to Arcadiana Equine at Copper Crowne, Opelousas, Louisiana. https://www.bloodhorse.com/stallion-register/stallions/165750/gemologist I remember seeing him at the Derby and thinking that he was easily the best-looking horse in the po...

Re: 2018 Two-year-olds

Gutsy win by Mucho Gusto (Mucho Macho Man-Itsagiantscauseway) in the Bob Hope (Gr. 3) at Del Mar. First stakes winner for sire, I think.

Keep that sire line alive!

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

Tapping Colors (Tapit half to Eskimo Kisses) broke her maiden at Belmont at age 5. Her Latest Film (War Front-Film Maker) was a decent second.

Re: 2018 Keeneland September Yearling Sale

509, a colt by War Front out of Tiffany's Honor, who is a half to great broodmare Better Than Honor, was our first 7-figure sale today. Went for $1,100,000. I got a good look at him on TVG as they showed him being led outside the sales pavilion, toward the camera and then a good side view as he wal...

Re: Mendelssohn

I really, really like what O'Brien is doing with him. Fingers crossed everything will go well! Same. I'm never going to be in a position to second guess AOB. I hope, however, that a successful plan doesn't include hustling him from the winners circle at the BC to a stallion barn. It would be hard t...

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

Chocolate Kisses (Candy Ride x Brownie Points), a half-sister to MGSW Synchrony, finished 3rd in the P.G. Johnson Stakes at Saratoga. The winner, Dogtag (War Front/Diamond Necklace) is o/o a half sister to Shamardal. The 2nd dam is a full sister to Street Cry. Dang, that's a heck of a pedigree. Fur...

Re: Travers 2018

Whitmore is super cool. Will have to rewatch, but it looked like City of Light got a brutal ride. He was just insanely wide the whole way around. I can't remember the last time a Ribot line horse won a Gr. 1 in the US---or anywhere, for that matter. Was it Pleasantly Perfect? not sure honestly but ...
