Re: Black Thoroughbreds

Independence Hall (Constitution) broke his maiden September 21. Like his half-brother Black Onyx , he's as close you can get to black while being registered as dark bay. http://www.winstarfarm.com/Domains/www.winstarfarm.com/CMSFiles/Images/NewsFeatureImages/constitution_09-21-19_P_02_IndependenceH...

She sold, unreserved, for $14,000.
Is that a decent price?

I watched. They had to adjust the camera.

Re: Racing in Japan

I think I can understand why the farms may be reacting so strongly. It was just a bit of mane this time but, if a someone was able to commit that vandalism, it also means that they got close enough to the horse to actually HURT him if they chose to. :( People are weird...and too often can be really...

Re: 2019 Keeneland September

You never know what gems are hiding in those thousand dollar babies. Lots of pedigree variety, would make a nice broodmare band probably. Weird knowing that I can go to keeneland right now and be able to afford one of these guys. What would I do with him afterwards though? My thoughts exactly. :lol:

Re: 2019 Keeneland September

Hip # 2146 .. a Colt (Summer Front-On the Menu), sold for one thousand. Was that the low price of the session?

Re: 2019 Keeneland September

I admit that I do not get why some horses sell at the prices they do. The hip # 1302 Candy Ride colt sold for 4k...did they not like his looks, breeding, presentation?

Also, is there a way of looking up a horse once it's racing to see the original sale price?

Logician, who just won the St. Leger, is registered as roan. But isn’t it impossible for Tbreds to be roan? Or is it just a registry thing and he’s not actually a true roan?
Looks gray to me.

Re: horses with unique coloring/facial markings

Thoroughbred race horse owners and trainers care nothing about color. They want speed and toughness.

But I still like seeing a successful, colorful race horse, like the white race horses in Japan.

Does anyone remember Jack Van Berg's Tri Chrome?
A bit more context might help. Great-looking animal, and I feel like I SHOULD remember.

Re: Uh, Wrona was just fired

I'd read that Wrona was going to call at Kentucky Downs, although that's only a five-day boutique meet. But IIRC he also was slated to call at Oaklawn Park starting with their next meet. Will he be able to work there AND be a full-time caller at Los Al? :? LosAl is pretty much a year-round operatio...

Very seldom are behavior issues a horse problem (PARTICULARLY if they've escalated to "violent"), they are almost always people created. There are plenty of people that have horses that are beyond their skill level. Plenty of people.

And now back to racing.
Amen.
