Re: Baltimore vs. Stronach Group

It's been a pretty uneventful reign for Belinda Stronach as monarch over family empire thus far. She's gotta be bored.

Sioux Nation will be shuttling to Australia and standing at Swettenham Stud. Americain will be moving from Swettenham to Daisy Hill.

Now this is cool... can’t wait to see how it plays out.

Re: 2019 derby prep races.

It was discontinued effective last year. Its always interesting to see how races fall in and out of favor. If that race wasn’t run on what is essentially a bullring, it would probably still be around. When CDI restructured the points a couple of years ago, the race was doomed. Most top trainers jus...

Re: Hoppertunity

TBH Hoppertunity is the only stallion worthy of breeding 250 mares. Dortmund got 25 mares his this year his first season standing in Maryland. In comparison, Valiant Minister (and his one-race career) received 78 mares in Florida. So regional markets are fairly unpredictable. And then, Army Mule st...

Re: 2018 Keeneland September Yearling Sale

IMHO, Americain needs to move to Australia. A Melbourne Cup-winning son of Dynaformer might be appreciated there. Americain was Leading Second Season Sire in Victoria this past season. He's stood at Swettingham Stud since retirement. He's had fairly large books in Australia and his first class is t...

Re: In memoriam 2018

Afleet Again, winner of the 2011 Breeders Cup Marathon, died in Korea. He had become a pretty serviceable stallion over there.

Re: Old Friends

I do find it interesting that Blowen appears to have two standards: one for the superstars and one for the commoners. It's funny that he underestimated Mulhall and Blues as well. Blowen kind of skeeves me out when we get the "saint" pose with Silver Charm, Game On Dude, or the others. I can't forge...

Re: Breeders' Cup Derby?

Pretty much every reaction on the web or in print could be characterized as a gagging sound.........
Which means there's at least a 50-50 shot the Breeders Cup will do it.

Re: In memoriam 2018

Losing Russell Road is like a punch in stomach for me. I've probably seen him run (and win) 10+ times. Everybody at Charles Town loved that horse. The loudest cheer I ever heard at that track was his defeat of Lucy's Bob Boy at the 2015 Confucius Say Stakes on CT Classic Day. When he lead the post p...
