I'm afraid you'll have to speak English. ;)
Yup, they said, you'll have to post to another site and link to here. Unfortunately the file storage for the boards costs $$ and it probably filled up pretty quickly.

Coming Thru, the Dynaformer half-brother to Eight Belles, is recently retired and for sale in KY if anyone wants a lovely 17.1h boy :D

Looks like he started out with Baffert (in Spud Spivens' maiden breaker) back in 2011 and was moved to the KY circuit, where he slipped down the ranks.

Yeah, it may just be precautionary.

Report from NBC this morning on BTN - he is comfortable. Next few days are crucial. Hoping for no complications.

So discouraging when three days ago Graham was at New Bolton taking BTN out to graze, and he was feeling so good he "required back up" to get him back to the barn.

Fingers & toes & everything crossed that BTN can come back from this too.

I just hope that his tendency to act up didn't rip his incision. :(
