Re: 2018 names

Question -- how long do owners have to change a name? They can change it up until a horse races. In extremely rare cases, a horse's name is changed after racing. For example, the 2YO now known as Scabbard was originally named Noose. After his first 2 starts, I guess someone pointed out the bad conn...

Re: Stallion News

The buyer of D'Wildcat and Closing Argument is actually Gerald Averett Jr. (they have his name misspelled in the sales results on one of the stallions). He owns Averett Farm in Louisiana and stands stallions. They have a Facebook page. Those horses need all the prayers we can give them. The horses ...

Re: 2019 BC Juvenile Turf

Quite a bit of War Front sire influence in this race this year. Fort Myers is by War Front himself. Peace Achieved, Decorated Invader, and War Beast are all by Declaration of War. Andesite is by The Factor. Both of those stallions are now in Japan, so... whoops. Isn't The Factor back this year? I t...

Re: Tragedy hits Santa Anita again

Anyone wanting and trying to prevent these occurrences should be lauded not derided. I will however say that one should be careful blanketing all inactivity at two. Marjorie E, the favorite in the final race on Saturday, didn’t run at two, nor did just about anyone on the bottom side of her pedigre...

War Front only covered 82 in 2018 but he has never covered big books. I think 110-ish is the max he has ever covered.
Yes - War Front's book has always been limited.

My list has only 73 of his 81 mares, so I guess I have some more digging to do. :lol:

Snaafi Dancer cost around 13,000,000 guineas back in the day and in the words of John Dunlop, couldn't beat the yard dog in a race. Spending ridiculous amounts of money doesn't equate to success.

I just made my second sale on Etsy ever, and last week, someone bought a painting privately.

I'm just so tickled that people actually will pay REAL MONEY for my art.

It's kind of hilarious and telling of the North American industry when the top 3 third year stallions are Take Charge Indy (exported to Korea), Declaration of War (exported to Japan), and Shanghai Bobby (Exported to Japan).
