Re: 2017 Names

Gizele was submitted for the MDO - Zenyatta filly but it was rejected for being to similar to Giselle. Maybe she will be named sometime..

Re: Stallion News

Not accusatory by any means (cause I know it probably sounds that way) but how did they ruin Mor Spirit in the Met Mile? Or more specifically, how did winning impressively ruin him? I was told that Mor Spirit was a head case that they just couldn’t do anything with, which is why he started racing l...

Re: Stallion News

When you say 'cooked,' are you suggesting that the effort in the race somehow harmed him physically? Has he been dealing with a lingering injury for the past 10 months, and he just couldn't recover 100% from that? Or were you thinking that the effort affected him mentally and turned him into a 'I d...

Re: Across the pond

This isn't across a "pond" but I don't know where else to ask. Does Canada have a Gr.I dirt race? No. They only have 5 G1 races and all are on the turf (Woodbine Mile, Northern Dancer S., Natalma S., Canadian International and E.P. Taylor S.). So many of their stakes races are restricted to Canadia...

Oh I am so sorry to hear about the death of With Anticipation: He was so magnificent looking and I always looked
forward to him racing. do you know the cause of death??? was he a gelding?
He was 23, it could have been old age. But there was no article about it.

Re: Across the pond

Too Darn Hot won the Champagne S.(G2), he is a full brother to Lah Ti Dar. Interesting this story says he was injured when he was very young and they thought he wouldn't make the track. Their advisors told them not to even try to sell him at auction, like the Lloyd-Webers do with all their male foa...

This year's four-day average of $363,780 was a 26% improvement over the $288,759 figure a year ago, and the median rose 50% to $300,000 from $200,000. The 229 yearlings not sold represented an RNA rate of 27.8%. https://www.bloodhorse.com/horse-racing/articles/229566/strong-session-closes-out-book-1...

Re: 2018 Keeneland September Yearling Sale

Saw some more pics of the Leslie's Lady colt. This might be the first MDO I have seen that is just unfortunate looking. Hopefully he can grow out of it. His off side back leg really drew my attention but I think it may be because he has it turned out. But it still looks weird in the other picture th...

Re: 2018 Keeneland September Yearling Sale

I don't think its much different from 2017, considering there are still 2 days left of Book 1 and they have great pedigrees in them as well. There are always yearlings with strong pedigrees and great pages that don't bring as much as we think they should. It can be for a variety of reasons, from may...

Re: 2018 Keeneland September Yearling Sale

Why not just scratch the colt at that point.. unless it was too late. Just weird, even if he was real quiet bad, you'd think he'd still bring more money. They can pull a horse whenever. There were horses withdrawn in the past 24 hours that were due to sell today. Doesn't really make sense that they...

If he wasn't getting support in KY at 3500$ as a Derby winner, the move makes sense. He was standing in Kentucky for $7,500. I feel like a lot of Calumet's stallions are overpriced though. Because they are. They've gotten more reasonable with each passing year, but still don't really reflect the ma...
