That's a lovely tribute to THE most important sire of the 20th Century, bar none. It's stating the obvious, of course, but doesn't hurt to say anyway that Thoroughbreds would not be what they are today without the truly great Nearco. Thank you for posting this tribute. LOL, according to a poster on...
Colic took a special horse 7 years ago. I will never feel that way about another. Boy, I wish they could eradicate colic and laminitis. Or at least, reduce the fatality %. So sad. RIP, SB.

Unbridled was supposed to be a kind horse as well. Toussaud was apparently quite a tough mare to deal with, if I recall correctly. I've never seen any mention of Empire Maker being bad ass. I think he's a nice boy. I remember when Unbridled died how highly he was spoken of by Claiborne. That he had...

Where do you rank AP among the greatest thoroughbreds all time?
This may have been posted already but, just in case, I'm tucking it safely away in his thread for TBC posterity. From the Racing Post: Pharoah's performance tipped title beyond doubt Ratings expert Sam Walker is in awe of American Pharoah after a Breeders' Cup performance that made him the highest-...
They really did try to test him a bit with Effinex, but he just couldn't keep up. There was no shame in that. I feel like Pharoah is a piece of magic that we have been given for a brief time. As he ran by me down the stretch, I started to cry. I couldn't believe what I was seeing. I honestly haven'...
I will say I did immediately think of Mr Magnier kissing his new cashcow vs stallion. Sigh. He will be well cared for and loved and they do have stallion showcase days. I thought Coolmore was an assembly like farm? I'm happy to hear he will be well cared for. Coolmore has big books and sometimes du...

9-8-1-0 Record for G1s alone, 10-9-1-0 for G-rated races . Just wow. hehe, auto correct? that made me chuckle :) i'm glad he won the bcc the way he did. he needed to, to close any doubts abt him, if there were any. i told someone i hoped for a sub 2min race. he could have easily done so if he'd bee...
I choked up watching AP barreling down the stretch like he owned the world. It was a classic moment. Truly an all time great horse. It's hard to say goodbye, and I hate where he's going to stand at stud. How many exactas, trifectas, superfectas did Effinex's running 2nd screw up?!~ I like this hors...

We used to go a couple of times a year. I have not been back since John's memorial. We were planning to go see Cigar when he died. I can't go back -- no Cathy, no John, no Cigar -- it will never be the same. I'll go to Lex when War Emblem is out of quarantine and I can see him at Old Friend's.
The Cal-bred Ralis just blew by Magna Light to take the Hopeful going away. A Reddam home-bred son of Square Eddie...and it seems like the offspring of Square Eddie have been doing pretty well. Paul Reddam is supporting his son of Smart Strike, perhaps a bit like Ramsey did with Kitten's Joy, to pr...
From a betting perspective, I love it. I'm still peeved Toast of New York couldn't get past Bayern in the Classic (can I PLEASE buy a DQ...), but he and Declaration of War have rekindled my enjoyment of betting top Euros in that race, often at overlaid prices. Toast of New York had proven synth for...
So, we had Coburn with Chrome and now Zayat with Pharoah. I'm not sure who is the more boorish owner. The twitter stuff from Zayat is ridiculous. He's all over the place. Saying he wants Saratoga. Then saying it's up to Baffert. Then losing and saying he's inclined to retire the horse. Then saying ...
