Re: Jim "Mattress Mack" McIngvale

I knew he's a philanthropist and admired the community help he provides..I just disagreed with the decisions he made regarding his horses( no way would I have kept Runhappy in the incapable hands of Laura Wohlers nor would I have used Maria borrell as a trainer)... I feel the same way about the West...

The opposite of social distancing

I live in New Hampshire. Like many other states we have a shelter in place order in effect. However our governor has been encouraging people to practice social distancing by going hiking on trails that are local to their towns...the problem we are running into is that our biggest and busiest mountai...

Re: Foals of 2020

The Player had another foal recently, a filly, whose mother was apparently "not so motherly" and they had to get a foster mare for her. Looks like things are going well! So far all of the Angus babies I've seen have been chestnut. https://scontent-ort2-2.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/90861538_2318129175154...

Racing resume question

If you are evaluating a stallion for a mare and you are placing some emphasis on the stallions race record. Would you rather breed to a stallion who won the Travers? Or a stallion who lost the derby and Preakness and won the Belmont? Which race do you consider more "prestigious" to list as a win on ...

Re: Gulfstream threatens legal action if forced to shut down racing

The Florida Derby has traditionally been a pretty major derby prep...if they can run it behind closed doors then why not? As others have stated...the horses still need to be cared for and ridden and as my friend states(she'd rather get sick for a couple weeks then get injured and be off her horse fo...

Re: 2020 Matings

I would have skipped the breeding based on the results of the MDO/Leslie's Lady mating. They still haven't named the colt and he is 3. They did send Beholder to top stallions the first 3 years, so I guess it makes sense to support a young farm stallion but I would have picked someone else like Omah...

Other than minor bruising and grade 1 of 5 lameness in all four legs no serious issues were found...I guess the question is do people think he will race again? Yes or no?
