Re: Stallion News

Honestly if I have to pick who to believe between Vice President Conversion Therapy or a horse... I'd go with the horse.

Do you... like... want Belinda's number or something? You seem... really into her.

Re: Racing in Dubai Sale - September 2019

I am curious as to what makes these guys "unsuitable for breeding in the UAE." What breeding is there in the UAE anyway? Also I was under the impression Godolphin had a generally good retraining/rehoming program. I saw an article last year about how some of their runners have gone on to be horses f...

Re: Racing in Dubai Sale - September 2019

I know Godolphin usually uses UAE horses in training sales as one of their outlet to sell younger (ie. 5 and under) horses who aren't making the grade, with plenty going on to have success at Meydan and other local UAE tracks. However, it is really disappointing to see horses 7+ years old and/or not...

Re: Across the pond

I was lucky to tune in to the livestream right as the charity race was being run. It was really wonderful and emotional watching everyone come together for such a good cause, and to see such legendary jockeys back in the saddle. I even got in on the action myself and bought Sea the Stars' saddleclot...

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 ...

I hope the track will be sealed for them to run! When our... vertically challenged dogs run around in our arena after we ride, a deep hoofprint in the sand can cause quite the pile up! :lol:

Re: Racing in Japan

She ran a great race. I am a big fan of Oisin Murphy, but he held her up for an awfully long time behind a wall of horses, by the time he pulled her out and got rolling, it was too late. Not sure she could have beat Magical in a fight, but she could have been 2nd.

Hopefully Champion Stakes is next?

Re: Across the pond

Yeah, I feel like if you have a 3 year old colt who likes like he could be a nice stayer, you would try for the English Leger instead. Unless you're Aidan O'Brien and you have two really nice staying 3 year old colts and the year is 2018. So you win the Irish with Flag of Honour and the English with...

Re: Coolmore Fundraiser

The showjumping community has rallied for Kevin Babington in an incredible way, with the fundraiser for his medical costs raising almost $700,000. Though he is Irish, Kevin has been based in the US for over 20 years, so to see Coolmore support "one of their own" in such a way is really touching. If ...

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.
Especially in Europe. They've proven that they can hold their own anywhere.

Crystal Ocean has been retired after suffering a severe injury on the gallops today. I can't access racingpost.com at work, which I'm sure is more in depth, but it appears he fractured a cannon bone and required two screws and surgery. They are optimistic that he'll recover and become a stallion. h...

Re: Across the pond

That's exciting! I was bummed to see his form tail off after Royal Ascot last year, but hopefully he will be competitive in some North American graded stakes. Seems kind of ambitious that their current plan is already prep race then Breeder's Cup, but if anyone knows how to do it, it's Chad Brown.

Re: 2019 Keeneland September

The vendor of the Leslie's Lady filly said that it was the nicest looking foal that she's ever produced. Quite a contrast considering her foal (a colt?) last year went for less than $500,000, no? Though that one wasn't quite as good looking, and probably had lots of vetting issues. Just looked into...
