I've spent all morning looking through my dresser drawers and under the couch cushions trying to scrounge up enough change to buy hip 498. ;)

Re: Stallion News

Bricks and Mortar is off to Shadai after the Breeders' Cup. I was hoping he'd stay in training for Ascot next year. I haven’t looked too hard, but I imagine the Japanese Breeders’ are investing in that the Giants Causeway is going to mix in well with the massive amount of Sunday Silence. Storm Cat ...

If anyone would like to own their very own cleverly named horse, here he is - and he’s a beefcake!!

Hollywood Girl (Giant's Causeway/Hollywood Story) broke her maiden today at SA.
Without doing the deep dive research, I have to imagine Hollywood Story is about as fine a broodmare after being a top tier racemare as you could ask for. I think I remember she went to Curlin last year.

Mares and value

Question for those in the biz...

When you have a mare with value as breeding stock - is it better to never have raced her than to try her and have her be a low quality racer?

Re: Gary West makes an interesting challenge...

Maybe it's just me, but I actually really like what he's done here. I wish he'd withdraw his lawsuit and move on there... but I like this sort of "my horses vs your horse, 1:1" attitude. Horse racing is built on the shoulders of stupidly wealthy individuals betting each other their horse is faster a...

Re: Jeremy Balan

All gleaned from twitter, but it seems after he posted about the 2YOs colliding (none injured, tweet has been deleted) on the training track after the main track was shut down (last week I think it was on the 6th?), he has been silenced. By Bloodhorse? By Santa Anita? Not sure. The Ritvo quotes seem...

Re: horses with unique coloring/facial markings

Very sad news. Latte Macchiato, Yukichan's 2YO filly, was put down in Japan due to training accident on Tuesday, per the netkeiba.com twitter account. I believe she was by Novellist.

Speaking of Union Rags.... His now 3YO half brother by Tapit (o/o Serena's Cat) ran last Saturday in a MSW at Fair Grounds. Race 3, if you want to go looking for the replay. Finished next to last and didn't seem to do much. Serena's Cat is the dam of Honor Code. Honor Code... Union Rags... I mean.....

Re: Baffert's Most Talented Trainee

AOB can’t be mentioned without Giants Causeway as one of his best. Honestly, I think he, like many others, are hampered by their best stock being retired to the shed before they can give their all. Yeats is a horse who proves out what AOB can do when allowed to properly compete through a career. Baf...

Now this is cool... can’t wait to see how it plays out. Also, I’d like to assume after the first years we will just call them the Chad Brown Crowns.

Haven't had a chance to keep up with anything lately, but Hidden Scroll just catapulted onto many Derby lists. Incredible debut for a Mott, albeit one who was working lights out before today.
That was a pretty nice performance for the Hard Spun colt. Geared down and ears up.
