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

Sottsass , a Siyouni half-brother to Sistercharlie , just won the Prix du Jockey Club. Sottsass won the Prix Niel (G2) today, the Longchamp Arc prep for 3yos A majorly pinheaded ride from Cristian Demuro almost lost it. It was so epically bad that it was pretty much all the announcer on the ATR fee...

Re: 2019 Keeneland September

I admit that I do not get why some horses sell at the prices they do. The hip # 1302 Candy Ride colt sold for 4k...did they not like his looks, breeding, presentation? Also, is there a way of looking up a horse once it's racing to see the original sale price? You can see their auction price(s) in t...

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

Mogul (IRE) (Galileo/Shastye), a full brother to Japan, etc., broke his maiden in the first race on the card at the Curragh today. Mogul just won the Juvenile S (G2) at Leopardstown. He looks really talented. I wonder what path Coolmore will take with him. The race was a WAYI for the BC, but there ...

Re: Stallion News

The article is inaccurate, though. He only stood one season at Buck Pond, not two.

Re: 2019 Keeneland September

I think there's a not-insignificant number of top end yearlings (particularly colts) brought to the sale because the owners are looking for partners more than to actually sell them.

How are the California Chrome yearlings looking? Are they selling well?
The filly out of Warbling went for $260K earlier, to what I believe are Japanese connections.

Re: 2019 Keeneland September

Don’t know if there was anything wrong with her, but I do know Dixiana bought her back since she was a foal share. I’m assuming they’ll sell her as a two yr old next year Thanks for the info! You’re welcome! Unless they go for decent prices I think quite a bit of the Kitten’s Joys Dixiana is sellin...

Re: 2019 Keeneland September

I would love to see more Kittens running abroad. I had to check the results. They actually wound up with 4 KJs, the full to Bobby's Kitten, the $700K colt, another one for $325K who's from the family of Forestry and Cash Run, plus a filly for $100K, who was the cheapest horse Shadwell bought from B...

Re: Stallion News

If that's the big announcement from Spendthrift, color me underwhelmed. If they're looking to build an empire via the Into Mischief line, I'd be more interested in Mr. Money than Maximus Mischief, personally. Maybe they think a son of Into Mischief is an easier sell than a son of Goldencents, but Mr...

The $700K Kitten's Joy colt who sold today went to Shadwell. I think they've bought 2 or 3 by him. I would love to see more Kittens running abroad. I had to check the results.

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

Alfie Solomons (full to World of Trouble) just debuted at Ky Downs in Race 4. As a Wesley Ward trainee, it is not surprising that he rocketed to the lead and managed to hold off 2 closing foes to secure the victory.

Here we go...

Hip 498 American Pharoah x Leslie’s Lady (half to Beholder, Into Mischief and Mendelssohn) goes for $8.2 million
That crazy Mandy Pope got her.
The Twitterverse is saying Godolphin was underbidder. They rarely lose a bidding war.

Would you say Spendthrift is teasing a new stallion announcement in this ad?
I checked their facebook. They are showing stall doors with old nameplates on them, Seattle Slew and Nashua, and keep saying 9/13/19.
Yeah, their posts are similar on other social media platforms.

Re: 2019 Keeneland September

I'm aware of this. Call it wishful thinking but, as someone who isn't privy to vet reports, I would have loved to see him bring more. I certainly haven't seen vet reports, either. But when I see a horse with a great page sell for what seems like a low price, I just chalk it up to unseen issues. It'...

Re: 2019 Keeneland September

Again, I thought this one would go for more. I'm biased when it comes to Union Rags and his offspring, but a full to Paradise Woods? And, from what I could see on my live stream, he looked like a handsome individual. *sighs* Again, if you haven't seen the vet reports, you don't know what issue(s) h...
