Re: Breeders Cup Discussion?

You grow tired of watching someone or something not care about itself. You should not care about something that does not care about itself. That is a healthy boundary. I think this is very important; thank you for saying it. Looking around at Paulick, Twitter etc. is incredibly distressing because ...

He pulled up (looked like Barbaros pull up, injury looks about the same too). Don't know if he fell, if he did, he was already way slowed down...

Soooo, they aren't saying anything? Seriously?
They finally just acknowledged it.

Looked like bad injury to his left hind unfortunately.

Back left. Looked really bad. I had heard from a friend at the track that he didn't look great in the morning, but didn't want to say it. Hoping against hope that he's somehow okay.

They aren't talking about it...

Ya, not a single word.....

Sigh. All is right in the world. Was a little worried there.
No, Mongolian Groom is hurt.
Nooo. Really? I missed that... that's terrible.

I was so hyperfocsed on VR.

Re: Breeders Cup Discussion?

Only way BaM comes back is if 1. Those 1 year leases become popular and Shadai sends him off the year his babies hit the track. 2. He bombs in Japan. 3. 1 year lease anyway because having international runners do well looks superb. Can't see it. They had a lot of success with that HOTY they bought ...

Re: Breeders Cup Discussion?

Wooooooooooo!! Makes me that much more sad he'll be off to Japan and never stand here. For now. Until the right sum is offered. It's a bit off but I can see turf racing taking of dirt here no problem. The fields are fuller, more competitive and the betting is better. He was sold to Shadai. There wi...

That stretch run looked like it was run through molasses. Still, nice efforts by the top two.

At this rate my pick-5 isn't even going to pay for itself...
Did it ever. They all looked like they were struggling and out of steam.

Re: Honor Code ...

I’m not sure if this doesn’t belong in the Breeding forum now, but Lane’s End dropped HC’s stud fee to $30,000. I know he doesn’t have a stakes winner, but isn’t that discouraging ? Does that mean that HC is no longer in demand? Not surprised by that drop at all. I think this coming year will be a ...

Re: 2019 List of Mares Bred

Per Joe Nevills: "Here is a look at the stallions that went over the 140-mare mark in the @jockeyclub's 2019 Report of Mares Bred. If the 140-mare cap were in place, that would have created 1,397 "free agent" mares." https://pbs.twimg.com/media/EHqIZgjWoAECft7?format=jpg&name=900x900 https://twitter...

Re: New Stallions of 2020

It's not unheard of for the less-accomplished full brothers of great racehorses to turn out to be decent sires. Giant's Causeway's sibling, Freud, did pretty well for himself. Going further back, Vice Regent (Northern Dancer) was the leading sire in Canada 13 times. He won 2 races, and $6200 His fu...
