Re: horses with unique coloring/facial markings

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? He's grey, not roan. Dam is grey, dam sire is grey, etc etc etc. Believed roan exists in one single mutated line with only a ...

Let's see what happens when Democratic Values debuts on Friday back at Belmont Park. Klaravitch/Brown/Castellano teaming up with a colt with a string of works on the main track at Saratoga that suggest he as some talent. Watch him work on xbtv.com in advance and tell me he's a one paced grinder. I ...

Re: Honor Code ...

. It's pretty sad that you can't deal with people who disagree with you except to say we're defensive; no, we're correcting your incorrect belief that Honor Code was a grinding, slow, plodder. AP Indy generally raced mid-pack; so, while a closer in the sense that he was no front runner, he didn't h...

Re: Honor Code ...

Well, let's just say Lane's End apparently wasn't making sure that people and mares known to get early two year olds were breeding to him. If I recall correctly, Wesley Ward bred 9 mares to AP, and I am guessing he wasn't paying full price. That was a calculated move by Coolmore to get AP off the b...

Re: Honor Code ...

^^ Agree to disagree. He had one run in him , and frequently had to be got into by the jock to prompt that drive. Wasn't uncommon to see him getting the stick to start him moving. Didn't answer my question about run from last types as sires though. Surprised to see the stallion no one wanted, Tonali...

Re: Honor Code ...

Not shocked by this early lack of success, but you'd think they'd have bred him to enough speedy 2 yr old sprinting types to get him off the mark a little better. Realistically, he had ZERO early speed and was, IMO, a one paced grinder who ran from last. Have there been any successful stallions of n...

Re: horses with unique coloring/facial markings

That is his dam. What an odd statement. Allanglos, I'm not sure why that qualifies as "an odd statement." Here in the States, if you see a TB foal with a chunky buckskin mare, that mare is usually a nurse mare. Most TB breeders here don't breed for color like that. It is an odd statement, given it'...

Re: Random News about Breeding and Breeders

It’s dumb advertising to say “the only two living TC winners”... because the last winner before those two was born in ‘75. LOL, no sillier than how they'd been advertising American Pharoah early on as the "only Grand Slam of racing winner in history". No mention that there was no Breeders Cup back ...
