Re: 2019 Pegasus World Cup

The headline is puzzling. Jimmy doesn't look too excited to me, but this boy has been training pretty well although mostly on dirt. Yeah, likely Stronach's call. I hadn't even noticed that. Pretty funny. The layoff line is 45 days. How many Stakes horses frequently run back that quickly? Any horse ...

Re: The WAR HORSE Chronicles

Foiled Again finished 5th in a tough field to cap off his incredible career last night. He then received a send-off ceremony worthy of his stature. His front shoes were pulled on the track, signifying his retirement, and the crowd sang "For He's A Jolly Good Fellow". Final record: 331-109-70-46, $7...

Re: The WAR HORSE Chronicles

Standardbred war horse Foiled Again , whom I am running out of superlatives for, won the penultimate race of his career Saturday night at Mohawk Park. That's his 11th win of the year, 109th overall. http://ustrottingnews.com/foiled-again-wins-in-canadian-farewell/ Replay here (6th race on the 22nd):...

Kukulkan won easily. He’s now 14 for 14.
I wonder where Kukulkan will go next? He's got nothing left to prove in Mexico and he'd earn more money running in the lowest-level stakes races here than in G1 races down there.

Re: The WAR HORSE Chronicles

On the subject of warhorses, I saw this little article today. Diving into the durability of a Standardbred It is without question, that when comparing the standardbred breed to others like thoroughbreds, standardbreds are the most durable breed in the world. In addition, standardbreds are able to tr...

Re: Stallion News

This Fiber Sonde seems like he’s doing ok in WV for $1,000. Unbridleds Song x Silken Cat (so he’s a half to Speightstown). He never ran a race. Beau Ridge Farm supported him with their own mares and once his foals started winning stakes races people took notice and he's been getting 50+ mares a sea...

Re: 2018 Vox Populi Award

I wrote in Hopper. I'm still a tiny bit sad he won't be running next year. Foiled Again is a great idea too. Some words about Foiled Again from Moira Fanning of the Hambletonian Society: To me, Foiled Again epitomizes harness racing. He wasn’t a flashy 2- or 3-year-old but he kept going out on the ...

Re: 2018 Vox Populi Award

Since none of the candidates listed are particularly suitable for the award I propose giving it to a Standardbred this year, Foiled Again . At age 14 and facing mandatory retirement at the end of the year, the richest harness horse in history won his 100th race and then some and made a farewell tour...

Anybody remember Comfort?

Per their website, Comfort began his career as a stallion at Double Tree Farm in New Mexico this year. Got 27 mares.

I presume he's also being bred to QH mares.

So why was Japan sold? Anyone know?
Lack of interest maybe? 16 mares in 2018.

He sold for $50K to...Santa Escolastica, agt. for Tupacireta SRLAG.

So I'm assuming a stud farm in South America.
Tupacireta is associated with Haras Santa Maria de Araras.

Re: Accelerate vs Justify HOTY

Call me a tinfoil hatter, but Justify's win will always be a little tainted for me with the Audible situation and it bugs me that it fell out of people's minds so quickly. Maybe not enough to put an asterisk by his name in the list of Triple Crown winners, but combined with his drastically condensed...
