Re: Fillies and Mares - 2018

Mike didn't even touch her with the whip, just let her cross the wire at a gallop in 5th. I hope she's OK. The...

Re: Waiting for news on ...

So happy he made it home safely after such an ordeal. Can he be used for breeding in the future once fully recovered? Doesn't sound like that have any plans to do so unless they have breeding facilities at their farm. They said he is at his forever home. Buff has mentioned breeding plans in a coupl...

Alpha Centauri bags another G1, this time in the Jacques Le Marois at Deauville.
I so wanted to watch this race live but could find no coverage anywhere. Looking for replay.

Instagrand's win was impressive and he is a really nice looking colt. His full 3yo sister won at Laurel 30 minutes prior to his win.

I read somewhere a couple of weeks ago - Baffert saying fans should come out to Belmont, they were going to see something special.

Re: Lady Eli

In a recent trip to Hill n' Dale the subject of Lady Eli came up as we were close to her barn. I got the impression that she has not mellowed and that allowing visits isn't something they would do with her. They did mention that she has been bred to War Front.

So glad for this recent update that things look to be on the upswing. Good people around this horse from th...
