Re: 2019 Pegasus

I know it's kind of weird to say in an industry known as the "Sport of Kings" dominated by aristocrats, sheikhs and celebrities, but does anybody else feel something's off about purses that are that high? Just realizing how much money $9 million and $7 million is vs how little the grooms and other b...

Those are wonderful pics, Miss Woodford. I don't see Lion Heart ? I'll have to browse through this account when I get the time and try to find some of my boy.

Re: horses with unique coloring/facial markings

Sway Away was another swayback. Who is at stud for some reason!? Apparently didn't get much interest in CA so is now in NM breeding Quarter Horse mares for $500. But who would send any mare to a young stallion with a back like this? It's not like he was a particularly special racehorse either https...

Re: Hoppertunity

I will say the Marathon Turf races are run differently from marathon Dirt races so that could be an obstacle for his running style, but I'd really like to see him give it a go. (Either that or Baff can use his powers for good and get someone somewhere to card a potential G1 12f race... :lol: ) He d...

Re: Justify

Unrelated subject.....but I'm surprised Hoppertunity has no stallion agreement already. He's won multiple G1s, so even if his pedigree is weak it should still be more than enough to at least secure a good regional place at stud..... Hoppertunity may actually be making more money as a racehorse than...

Can’t say I’m surprised. Unfortunate that he wil never get to show everyone what’s he’s made of against older horses. I wonder if this can be used as a cautionary tale of pushing a young horse with no foundation (and injuring or souring them) or that is unrelated and it’s all about money? Consider ...

Re: Justify

IMHO, Justify is going to present a problem ( hopefully one that doesn't repeat ) for racing historians. How do you judge a horse whose career spanned only a few months and merely six races...but he managed to win the Triple Crown? He never raced at two and will never face older horses. He was impr...

Re: Jockey/Trainer News - 2018

It's totally irrelevant, but I'm surprised every time I read one of these articles and they only mention Victor as being AP's jockey. I personally associate him much more with Chrome. AP is obviously the TC champion, but I thought Chrome was much more high profile, perhaps it was the crazies! And w...

Re: Where is the Classic division?

Should add Hoppertunity to that list, he's the rare example of a legitimate 10F horse (really a 12f horse but they sadly just don't card enough races at that distance for him) and him and Accelerate are the only older males with multiple graded stakes wins over one mile on dirt this year.

Re: Mexican Triple Crown 2018

Portugal doesn't have horse racing (does it?). It does! They have races for TBs, Arabians and trotters. They had 14 days of racing last year and will have 19 this year. I don't think there's much history as the racing governing body was established in 1997 and racing with betting was only legalized...

Too late I already saw those comments all over. If he retires now, will he be the only TC winner not to face olders? I don't think Count Fleet ever ran again after the Belmont.
