Re: The Saudi cup

I wonder what their “ permitted frequency” is? It says. The Frequency list is a mis-use level scale, like 1 - is a scale 1, 2 is a scale 2, 3 is a scale 3. A scale 1 misuse results in a minimum 1 day suspension, scale 2 is minimum 2 days, scale 3 is minimum 3 days. Below that is the actual list of ...

Re: The VENT Thread

I slipped over on rubber matting at the yard (it was non-slip, the irony :roll: ) and basically landed sat down on concentrate over 2 weeks ago now. I have constant back and hip pain - seen doctors twice and they won’t x-ray it due to location & chances of missing a fracture. So I’m in quite a lot o...

Re: In Memoriam 2019

The wonderful, tough and consistent campaigner Houblon Des Obeaux (FR) collapsed fatally from an internal bleed at Sandown yesterday. As with a lot of British racing fans, I’ve followed him for years and jump racing won’t be the same without him. It’s Jennifer (FR) was also lost at Aintree, her firs...

She was found distressed in her stall at Saratoga, sent to a vet clinic but died there of acute blood loss (per NYS reports) :( :( Accuse blood loss? WTH? Someone didn’t pay attention. Poor...

Was Sir Winston's dam La Gran Bailadora bred this year? To Awesome Again, I hope.
Just looked and it doesn’t look like she was bred this year.

Re: In Memoriam 2019

@DRFMcGee Per @keenelandracing stewards, Amandine suffered injuries during R8 on the turf course here yesterday that necessitated her euthanization. Extremely unfortunate. Stakes-winning British-bred 4yo filly was G1-placed.

R.I.P :(

Re: Waiting for news on ...

Amandine went wrong, vanned off in race 8 at Keeneland today. I’ve not been able to find an update on her. Any news? I was THERE and I couldn't get any news. The outriders have a code of silence and refuse to say anything about injured horses. Just seen this :( @DRFMcGee Per @keenelandracing stewar...

Re: Across the pond

Does anyone know what racing in Scotland is like? I know they have a Grand National, but what else and do they breed or just import from England and Ireland? They have 5 racecourses; Ayr, Hamilton, Perth, Kelso and Musselburgh, which hold a mix of flat and jumps. Trainers tend to send their horses ...

Re: Racing in UK cancelled due to equine influenza

It is all across the news here in the UK. We live near Newmarket and Huntingdon. I think it would be wise, for all people who had contact to infected horses, to stay away from any other equine facility. My gosh it‘s foaling season. The roads are full of trailer with mares who are on their way to th...
