Re: 2019 Two-Year-Olds

I read an article posted a couple of hours ago that describes Honor AP's stride as choppy.... I agree with the writer that he does have a high knee action, but I don't think it's choppy; granted, I'm no stride expert, but he looks pretty smooth to me. This writer says he'll have a hard time stretchi...

Re: 2019 Two-Year-Olds

Honor A.P. looked amazing - he’s a gorgeous, hunk of a horse who won as he pleased. I love that he’s got speed, but obviously can come from behind as well... Really liked this guy in his first start glad to see he came back a strong winner. A plus for his sire too- I know there is were some here wh...

Re: Siblings (and offspring) of well-known horses

Honor A.P., a gorgeous son of Honor Code and Hollywood Story, broke his maiden by about 5 lengths - easy. He won on the lead, unlike his debut when he closed from 20 lengths out of it 2-turns, right? It was a mile race at Santa Anita, so yes...It’s interesting that he showed so much speed - he brok...

Re: 2019 Two-Year-Olds

Maxfield very impressive in winning the Breeders Futurity by about 6 lengths. He's by Street Sense out of a Bernardini mare, so more distance should be no problem. Bernardini is a turning out to be a fantastic broodmare sire..l Yes he is. Didnt we have this discussion a couple years ago? I’m not su...

Re: 2019 Two-Year-Olds

Tapit is turning into a sire of sires. As a huge fan of Pulpit - still, I think, maybe AP Indy’s most talented son, I’m happy about that. Pulpit died too young, but he’s helping carry on the Slew line, and that’s a good thing.

Re: Jockey Club Gold Cup

That was a great race - I hate to see this in a big race, but the multiple bumps were significant, so I feel the DQ was justified. I wasn’t a fan of the colt before, but I am now a fan of Code of Honor; he’s such a good colt. I don’t know who this guy on TVG is, but 24 and 47 are not fast fractions....

Re: Honor Code ...

Let's see what happens when Democratic Values debuts on Friday back at Belmont Park. Klaravitch/Brown/Castellano teaming up with a colt with a string of works on the main track at Saratoga that suggest he as some talent. Watch him work on xbtv.com in advance and tell me he's a one paced grinder. I ...

Re: 2019 Keeneland September

I'm especially looking forward to Cavorting's Curlin filly. Cavorting has been forgotten because she was injured and missed the Breeder's Cup, but she was a fantastic filly........ She's an out. So is Rachel's Valentina's Curlin colt. Oh, what? Darn............but, maybe the owners just decided to ...

Re: Honor Code ...

I'm talking about the father, not the son, remember? I never said HC never had talent, he very obviously did. But, there's no denying he had one run in him per race, from dead last usually. And he either made up the distance, or he didn't . I never cared for the fact the jock usually had at least o...

Re: Honor Code ...

Pleasant Colony did okay......really it’s all about turn of foot not so much when it’s used. Honor Code had turn of foot and he was special from 7-8f. He could get 9, but I liked him best at 7-8f around one turn. He actually ran pretty well in the BC Classic....and yes, he had a brilliant turn of f...

Re: Honor Code ...

^^ Agree to disagree. He had one run in him , and frequently had to be got into by the jock to prompt that drive. Wasn't uncommon to see him getting the stick to start him moving. Didn't answer my question about run from last types as sires though. Surprised to see the stallion no one wanted, Tonal...

Re: Honor Code ...

Not shocked by this early lack of success, but you'd think they'd have bred him to enough speedy 2 yr old sprinting types to get him off the mark a little better. Realistically, he had ZERO early speed and was, IMO, a one paced grinder who ran from last. Have there been any successful stallions of ...
