Re: Equibase chart notes

I've always wondered who the chart writers are, and how you get to become a chart writer. Does the same person do all the races on the card, or are there a couple working alternate races. I imagine they use the replay to focus on each horse. Definitely seems like a really interesting job if you love...

Equibase chart notes

Many charts give the barest bones of what transpired in a race, but once in a while, you come across a real gem that clearly reflects excellent writing and care. Today, I read the chart for Belmont's 6th race as I follow Gidu (a Frankel colt) and wanted to acknowledge the commitment of this anonymou...

Re: Turkish Horse Racing

The Turkish jockeys look longer-limbed than USA riders. Do they ride at the same weight as over here?

Re: Omaha Beach out!

Would the draw reins he has been in for some training sessions possibly have contributed to the entrapment?

Peace Rules - wow - that's a name from the past. Loved that horse - a real competitor. Am I remembering right that Bobby Frankel trained him?

Re: 2018 Keeneland November Sale

Finally found the Keeneland thread. Wonder why Pavini (hip 163), only sold for $200,000. She's by Dubawi, and her dam sire is Sadler's Wells. Additionally, she's in foal to American Pharoah. If her physical was not great, hard to think she'd have been approved to be bred by AP. If the mare's owners ...

La Verdad's Tapit filly, 116A, in the ring. With her blaze and four sox, she's pretty flashy.
$800,000.
Mandy Pope and Three Chimneys bought her.

Ditto.


Winning the Triple Crown is a brutally tough accomplishment. It happens so rarely that I believe it should be rewarded with HOTY.

Every time I watch WInx drive to front and then accelerate away, I'm amazed at how much faster than her foes her legs seem to be turning over . She has a turbo-gear no-one else seems to have. She does move her legs faster, her stride isn't as large as some horses. Every minute Winx is in full motio...
