Re: Nearco tribute

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...

Re: Shared Belief

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.

Re: Empire Maker(USA) to Gainesway

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...

Re: 2015 BC Classic

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'...

Re: 2015 BC Classic

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...

Re: Kentucky Horse Park to Unveil Cigar Statue

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.

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 ...
