Re: Stallion News

Both Old Topper and Sea of Secrets are senior stallions, so that's no surprise...but I'm really sorry to see Coil on that list. :( I'd so hoped he would be that successful sire son that Point Given hasn't had. I wonder if they've completely given up on him and he'll be gelded, or if they'll wait an...

Empire Maker died
Well to put it succinctly, yes. However, the fact he died of a rare immune disorder that the article did not really expand on is troubling to me in an industry where he was being bred to "improve the breed".

Re: 2020 Three-Year-Olds

I admit, the horse may be all that and then some. However, when owners take a colt by Blame out of Ascending Angel and name him....Nadal, I just can't root for that kind of laziness. Be better, owners, be better. :geek:

Re: New Conformation Photos

Upstart is handsome...and isn't he a full to the late Jump Start? I thought those two 'Indy sons were very underrated; IIRC, Jumpstart had some excellent filly runners. I hope his last couple of crops run lights out. No he isn't. It is funny. I see that trope of being underrated connected with Upst...

Re: New Conformation Photos

Don't see anything wrong in the hind, but boy is he upright through the fore pasterns . He's always was. I saw him last Sunday and he seemed to be walking fine. Oh, sorry for miscommunication. Didn't mean to imply he was lame, just noticed that conformation. His fetlock joints actually look ok give...

Re: Stallion News

So, after looking at tons of stallions photos popping up on twitter as the open houses are ongoing, I have to say that Justify must have crappy feet to still be shod in front. I am not sure I have seen another stallion with shoes on.

Re: Bramlage's Mongolian Groom report

Lots to think about there. I don't assume that Dr. Bramlage is writing in a truly impartial voice, but it seems obvious that detecting lameness--and the risk of false positives--is not a simple analysis. A proper lameness evaluation usually is an all day affair on a flat hard surface that can allow...

Bramlage's Mongolian Groom report

https://www.breederscup.com/sites/default/files/MongolianGroomEvaluation.pdf The report from Bramlage. Believe every track has a bit of dead space within the middle of both main and training tracks where rings and straightways for trotting for lameness evaluation could be set up. Also think, small g...

You can use Weatherbys for Europe. You can use Studbook de Chile for Chile.

Re: Racing in Japan

I don't see how that is accurate. Something that steep should be visualized easily, like the stretch at Epsom, and this looks steeper than that. https://www.city.funabashi.lg.jp/funabashistyle/en/003/p042854.html there is a picture of the stretch of Nayakama that does not appear anywhere close to th...

Re: Why chrome was sold

Of course I could say that "dippy", long back is a common trait of the Seattle Slew/ AP Indy line, but then that would mean Chrome actually might have stamped some foals.

Re: Stallion News

Have to say, I am not a big fan of the barrier at the front of that quarantine stall. First off, wood should never be used in a quarantine facility. It is incredibly difficult to truly disinfect it compared to concrete, metal, plastic, etc. Second, those bars look just wide enough apart to allow a h...

Re: Arrogate offspring confirmation

You know what would be sorta nice.

Re: Siblings (and offspring) of well-known horses

Especially since he is a ridgling anyway. I wonder if they ever went in to get the undescended testicle.
Watching a few videos of Fort McHenry train and race, he always seems pretty rank and so I think gelding is at least the first step to getting him into a better place on the racetrack.

Re: Stallion News

Those were optional so I don't think he was offered for a tag in those races.
