I figured this was coming since Kronfeld died. She hasn't been given much of a chance to race, so hopefully whoever buys her will still race her.

Wishful thinking, I know.

Well, okay, that caught me off guard for some reason. I hope it works out.

Her value is as a broodmare. This makes perfect sense. The only other thing they could have done is breed her and sell her in foal.

Odds are that she will be sent to the shed, but I wish she could have a chance to redeem herself on the track. Her last out was such a debacle, with her freakout and injuries in the gate pretty much taking her out of that race.
But, you know some deep-pocket breeder is going to put down a lot of money for her, and there's no way a Coolmore, Darley or Shadai is going to risk her on the track. She's too valuable as a broodmare.

Well, surprised, but not surprised. Would love to see her get back on the track after the sale, but her breeding is worth a lot more, and racing hasn't exactly gone 100% for her. I'd be more surprised to see her back in racing than just retired to be a mom. Maybe Mr. Leon will buy her. He probably spent enough in 2011. ha

Better a broodmare than to be a "racehorse" that can only race twice a year.

She's definitely going to Japan. She's too good of a broodmare prospect to stay in this country.

I don't think it is a done deal that she is going overseas. There are some deep pocketed Americans who are willing to shell out the bucks for a high profile filly. Mandy Pope immediately comes to mind.

When and if she does, the Zetards will lose their ever-loving minds...
