Re: 2019 Two-Year-Olds

Sort of an odd "first" - Liraz (filly out of Jemima's Pearl) may become American Pharoah's first offspring to be claimed . She's up for a $25,000 tag next Thursday at Gulfstream : http://www.equibase.com/static/entry/GP082219USA-EQB.html#RACE6 . Liraz went for only $33,000 in Keeneland's January Al...

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

Fort McHenry (Tapit/Love the Chase), a 1/2 brother to California Chrome, and Market Impact (Carpe Diem/Caressing), a 1/2 brother to West Coast, debut in Race 1 at SAR on Saturday. Edit: they're both entered MTO Absolutely shocking to me that Chad Brown of all people entered a MTO horse. Based on th...

Re: In Memoriam 2019

Wow, I am also surprised not even a mention for Composure as she was one I followed back in the day and has been a good producer as well. Warbling has a 2018 filly by Chrome.

Re: Horrible Names For Horses

Coolmore also gives some good one word names to their mares sometimes. Up, Was, Twirl, Minding, Winter, Tapestry, Soon, etc. Godolphin Australia has the best one word names. If you don't mind going down a bit of a rabbit hole, their website has all of their horses in training listed, and whoever is...

Re: R.I.P. King Kamehameha

It really is past- time for stud managers to start re-evaluating the super books they set out for these stallions. Even if it were not already a growing problem in terms of genetic diversity, it is obviously showing out as more data comes in over the years that many of these overworked stallions pay...

Re: First Winners

While things can change very quickly with first crop sires, I would have to think Lane's End is starting to get a bit concerned that none of their first year sires who all had a good group of mares behind them have been showing out as of yet. And while Khozan has been getting rightful buzz for his s...

Re: Stallion News

I get the economics involved, but it is odd to me not one mention has been made of just leaving Roaring Lion in New Zealand for at least a year if not permanently rather than risking another long trip when he is always going to be at a higher risk for colic going forward. Colicking could also certai...

Re: Stallion News

No doubt there is correlation, though a horse can colic anywhere. However the stress of shipping and quarantine certainly compounds the risk as some might not drink as well and suddenly being stall bound for a few days also changes their routine. This horse had handled transatlantic flights fine, bu...

Re: Jockey/Trainer News - 2019

This is likely what Del Mar wanted. If JH wins the legal battle, he gets to run at Del Mar, but if any of his break down, DM gets to say well we tried to keep him out, so they save face PR-wise. I would love to think someone in this sport actually is thinking and planning for the good of it, but rea...

Re: 2017 Names

So are the original name certificates mailed to the breeder or the current owner? I found it interesting the original certificate was mailed to SF for Chrome's brother.
I would be shocked, shocked to find out a supposed purchase at a sale was mere smoke and mirrors. 😂

Re: Matings 2019

Had to look up Ocean Colors as a daughter of Winning Colors, and I think it is safe to say that someone is a big fan of combining Nasrullah sirelines.

Re: Matings 2019

Elarose was apparently to go to California Chrome, at least that is what the buyer mentioned when he bought her last November. Wonder what happened there? On another note, it is just me or have early stallion career sensations like Uncle Mo, Super Saver, and even Pioneerof the Nile to some extent ta...

What is interesting is this is the second time I have seen his fertility mentioned. The first was by the vet in Chile in an offhand comment when she mentioned that his fertility was good the second year there which makes me think that it was a bit of an issue the first year. More Than Ready is a gre...

Re: Stallion News

Pretty sure I remember the contract was for two years with an option for a third. It is pretty expensive to ship and to insure a stallion, and I am sure they factored that into a return if the interest wasn't overwhelming. Chrome was always going to have to prove himself with results on the track wh...

Re: Chad Brown has been ordered to pay more than $1 million ....

Even after reading it I sincerely doubt Chad himself is doing payroll. Does the president of your company do it? Someone he hired likely did it for him. Nowhere did I say it was an ooops. Someone was clearly negligent. How backstretch workers are treated in my opinion is looooow. Had to offset the ...

Re: Chad Brown has been ordered to pay more than $1 million ....

My guess is that Mr. Brown knows horses and turf, and someone else in the business end of his organization is supposed to be paying a little closer attention to these details - or at least that is how it will be played out. How in the world could you possibly believe that you could get away with an...
