Re: Stallion temperament or personality

I’ve heard that my baby, A.P. Indy, is a sweetheart...and that another son of Slew, Slew o’Gold, was so friendly and easygoing that kids could be put on his back. I haven’t heard anything indicating that Tapit has any meanness in him; he no doubt gets his feistiness from his own sire, Pulpit - who w...

Re: 2019 Eclipse Awards-Predictions?

British Idiom will win, and while I'm not saying she's undeserving, too many voters don't really pay attention and pretty much just look at the BC ( which is why Storm the Court is almost a certain winner...not that there are a boatload of super deserving candidates ). However, I could vote for Bas...

Re: 2019 Two-Year-Olds

Maybe someone can answer this for me because I'm confused. Unfortunately (at least for me, as I was dying of anticipation) Honor A.P. will not run in the Los Alamitos Futurity and will point to the Sham Stakes in January. I guess I'm confused because the colt is really sharp now - based on his works...

Re: 2019 Two-Year-Olds

Independence Hall (by Constitution) won the Remsen (G3) at Aqueduct today by 12 1/2 lengths. Nashua....the Remsen is on 12/7. This was easily the most impressive 2YO performance of the year, anywhere in North America, on any surface. It was freakishly good. You need to watch if you haven't seen thi...

Re: Honor Code ...

For comparison. Tonalist's fee was $15K this year, and for 2020 its the same. He's 12 on the First-Crop list. No stakes horses. Honor Code's was $40K this year, and $30K for 2020. He's 14 on the First-Crop list. No stakes horses. Liam's Map gets an increase from $20K to $35K for 2020. He's currentl...

Re: Honor Code ...

I’m not sure if this doesn’t belong in the Breeding forum now, but Lane’s End dropped HC’s stud fee to $30,000. I know he doesn’t have a stakes winner, but isn’t that discouraging ? Does that mean that HC is no longer in demand? Not surprised by that drop at all. I think this coming year will be a ...

Re: Honor Code ...

I don't think it is discouraging, it's realistic. He's had a good, not great, start, and they can't justify a fee increase or keeping it the same until he gets some stakes winners. If he was no longer in demand, he wouldn't be at Lane's End standing for $30,000. He covered 138 mares in 2019 so I wo...

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.

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....
