You said they can make a load of $$ off this horse.....winstar could make a lot more $$ keeping him to breed themselves...so this still doesn't make sense to me.

You really think this? Anthropromorphizing. Do you have any idea how hard it is on a horse to shuttle between hemispheres 2x a year and that it's a grueling schedule?

I have often wished that above all, I am never reincarnated as a race horse. For so many many reasons.

Yeah, but they get the money all at once by selling.

MSD: You really think this? Anthropromorphizing.

Well, I was being a bit tongue-in-cheek. That's why I added the :P , and the remark about poor War Emblem.
I do think that a stallion gets a certain satisfaction from breeding, even if it is just Nature's way to encourage him to perpetuate his species.
However, shuttling is a whole different topic. Shipping a horse long distances can come with risks, and maybe not every stallion has the mind or the constitution for shuttling.
The next two weeks should be rather interesting, as we wait to see who actually gets the rights to Justify. And whether Winstar, CHC, etc. wait until the Belmont to see if they're selling a dual-classic winner...or the 13th Triple Crown champion. How much money over the rumored $60 million is that crown worth? :?

There is such a thing as too much of a good thing. With the volume of mares that studs see in a season these days, many of them are exhausted by the end of it. Obviously you can force a stallion to breed if he doesn't want to, but I do think it can be gruelling.

I'm totally cool with Audible not being entered in the Belmont. Stupid if the owners lost a $25M bonus by beating their own horse with their own horse. Audible wasn't a mortal lock to win the Belmont anyway looking at his predigree.

I do like Justify's chances to win the Triple Crown a little more though. I wouldn't say he's a mortal lock either knowing he could be exhausted from this compressed schedule. I'm still not betting the Belmont. I don't want to jinx Justify. Just kick back and enjoy.

covered with framed photos of American Pharoah---

Barbara Livingston's wonderful photo has also been released in print. She said on her FB she'll be releasing more prints, just didn't want to do too many at 1st and not have them all sell. She's also donating $10 from each print to the Race Track Chaplaincy of America.
