Re: The Saudi cup

Do threats from missiles and armed UAVs from both Iran and their Houthi proxies in Yemen count as politics? Google ARAMCO attacks. The Iranians are more pissed off now because of Soleimani and they will get payback. An high-profile event with many Americans is a tempting target, not to mention the ...

Re: McHorseRaceCall in NYRA

I wonder if Larry has a better offer waiting for him elsewhere. NBC doesn't do nearly enough racing for him to be there full time.

Re: The WAR HORSE Chronicles

I wonder what's up with that claim of 11-y-o Jonny's Choice. Owner/trainer Beverly J. Hamilton put in the claim at Turf Paradise about a week ago, yet Equibase shows her last sending out a starter in 2018 at Portland Meadows. Strange that she'd be claiming such a horse to restart her racing career. ...

Re: The Saudi cup

The well known jockeys publicly stating that the track and footing is perfect in every way made me lol. Because if anyone will tolerate a dissenting opinion, it's the royal family of Saudi Arabia. Baffert said its to deep a track for a horse to run in the Saudi Cup and then make it to the Dubai WC ...

Re: Foals of 2020

@ Northview Stallion Station First foal for Hoppertunity is a filly out of stakes winner Rhythm In Shoes (Rhythm). The filly is a half-sister to 7 winners. The dam's broodmare sire is Fred Astaire , a name I don't see in a lot of pedigrees. https://www.paulickreport.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/01/u...

Re: Horrible Names For Horses

Perhaps there's a reason for it, like maybe she got out of the paddock as a youngster and got into something slimy and sticky? The name also ruins a superb naming history on Slimey's dam side. It started with Oratorio (bred to Verbatim, no less) five generations back and continued through Right Wor...

Re: The WAR HORSE Chronicles

Nice to see Khan of Khans retired. He hasn't raced since 2018 and I was fearing that he'd meet the same fate as his old Suffolk/Finger Lakes buddy Grady did -- breaking down in one of those Mass-bred races Finger Lakes runs. Khan went out a winner in his last race at Suffolk in the summer of 2018, a...

I have to speak up about the whole "Cartel" name and pass on some wisdom received from a certain QH expert (MountainMajesty) from another forum.

Re: The greatness of a nation and its moral progress

It kind of makes you wonder what you'd have to do to get a lifetime ban. :?

I've never liked the name Hoof Hearted. I've always wondered how that name was ever accepted by the Jockey Club. Remember, that's the bunch who also let Honor An Offer, Cunning Stunt, Bodacious Tatas, Isitingood and Black Beaver go. Besides, if you pronounce "hoof" as I always have, with a short "o...
