Hmm...this article describe Forest Mouse as a "horse." Is this nine-year-old still intact?
If so, I hope that he'll be headed off to the shed soon. After earning over $855,000, he's earned a cushy farm job. :P ;)
Yes, he's intact. My understanding is that he will be headed to regional stallion duty upon completion of his racing career - but they just might be looking at that ever so close million dollar mark - so a 10yo season may not be out of the question, unless, of course, he has a stellar 2017. Just a nice, hard trying blue collar horse. Hope he stays safe.

Shaman Ghost came out well of the Pegasus. No set plans yet for his next start.

They make it sound like he is on the brink of going lame at any second. Which I know is the case for any horse, but they really make it sound like soundness could keep him from making it through the year. Odd phrasing.

Hoppertunity Seeks San Antonio Repeat (Mor Spirit is entered too)

Go Hops! I would love to see one of my favorite guys repeat the score... For betting purposes I'd probably take either Accelerate or Dalmore to upset.
Go Hopper!

I'm assuming he's laid up again, because he was supposed to be aiming for the mile race at GP on Saturday. And he hasn't worked since December. On the bright side, his 3YO 1/2 sister has started breezing.

Bal a Bali Training Toward Kilroe Mile
Fox Hill Farms and Siena Farm's Bal a Bali is currently listed on the Calumet Farm online stallion roster, but if all goes as planned, he won't be visiting any mares this year.

Still in training with Hall of Famer Richard Mandella in Southern California, the 2014 Brazilian Triple Crown winner is working toward a start in the March 11 Frank E. Kilroe Mile (G1T) and logged a six-furlong drill Feb. 10 in 1:13 3/5 at Santa Anita Park.

"I gave him some time off, and they thought, if he didn't train well, he could go to stud," Mandella said. "But he's training too good to go to stud."

Ah, well.... the year is still young. ;) Thanks; I had a feeling you would be the one who would know.

He's always had issues of some sort, but they never specified exactly what plagues him. If he's like his mother,it might be feet.

Bolo looked well-beaten in the Arcadia...and then he kicked in the afterburners to overtake the front runners just before the wire. THAT is a turn-of-foot. The gorgeous son of Temple City wins the Arcadia two years in a row.

Amazing what being able to breathe properly can do for a racehorse. Good to see him winning again.

Bolo Repeats in Arcadia Stakes
After some strangely bad performances in 2016, Golden Pegasus Racing and Earle Mack's Bolo needed throat surgery to repair a breathing issue.

During the stretch run of the $200,000 Arcadia Stakes (G2T) Feb. 11 at Santa Anita Park, it sure seemed like his lungs were full of air. Watch Video

He bombed in his first start for Baffert, but evidently something went wrong. We could use some depth in the older ranks, that's for sure.
I ran marathons. I saw the Taj Mahal by Moonlight. I drove Highway 1 in a convertible. I petted Zenyatta.

When is Connect supposed to be starting up his year? I think he's worked a few times.
