Re: Dancing Brave is back!

It’s just been a lousy week hasn’t it? I loved his mother, Goodbye Halo was such a wonderful filly when she raced, and Dancing Brave was such a gorgeous hunk.

King Halo looked so much like his sire. Saddened to read of his passing today.

Re: Stallion News

Kinda similar to the death of Sebring in Australia just a few weeks ago at the age of 13. Sometimes these things happen, but it’s still heartbreaking and sad.

Re: 2019 Foals

Yes he seems to have thrown pretty nice foals considering how his looks have been critiqued by some Granted he isn’t the typical pretty pony but he sure could run. And his foals so far are very nice.

Re: Sad state of breeding

Very true, but everything in life seems to based on instant gratification in the social media age. Patience is no longer a virtue.

Like many things, longevity doesn’t factor into the equation.

I miss the days of my younger years when things moved at a slower pace.

It was a long shot from the beginning...under 300 days gestation just isn't long enough...DoDad was too premature.

Re: Stallion News

I saw a pick of Nodouble (USA) today on twitter. I knew that he was the sire of Mairzy Doates (USA), the winner of the inaugural runnning of the Japan Cup in 1981. She is one of my all-time favorites. But this is the first time I come acorss a pick of her sire Nodouble. https://pbs.twimg.com/media/...

Re: 2019 Three-Year-Olds

He'd maybe have run through the end of 2018 unless he came from an amazing female family. There is no way he would be running in 2019. In my lifetime I've seen a 2yo season essentially become pointless and the spacing in between starts increase. Catholic Boy is getting a long break. From what? His ...
