Re: Photos/News about Broodmares

For a country with 2 presidents, you think they could control stuff like that. Oh wait, that is democratic socialism at its finest. All the Bernie supporters should look to see what kind of future they have to look forward to should he win. Yup, "take the political stuff elsewhere". Sure thing. But ...

Re: Stallion News

I think this country will live to regret selling him off.

Our loss will be Japan's gain, yet again.

Re: Stallion News

There are ways to get things from Japan, a little complicated but it can be done, as my sons do it all the time for their collectibles they purchase from there. It’s like going to somebody in Japan who purchased items then resells try hem to you. This is one place: https://www.whiterabbitexpress.com/

Re: Old Photos QUESTION

You can also reach out to the Keeneland Library and they will help you identify the horses in the photos. I purchased several at a local flea market and they found out about all the photos free of charge.

Re: Dot proposes rule to ban service mini horses from flights

Good, now let’s hope they enforce this in grocery stores , Costco, Lowe’s, etc. Some moron brought their cat into Costco today, had it dressed in a bunny suit and was trying to hold it. The poor thing was freaking out and clawing the crap out of the owners. I love my critters but they stay home. The...

Re: Stallion News

How very sad that the beautiful Empire Maker is gone. But he outlived many in his lineage. Dr. Fager, Fappiano, Unbridled, Pioneerof the Nile, Royal Delta , etc., all died fairly young. Rest In Peace you big, beautiful boy. 😢

Re: Stallion News

Empire Maker was a very good stallion, sold to Japan, pretty much a bust there and thankfully brought back. When he sold there many people were quite surprised as he was not struggling as a sire. Many of the European horses imported had a lot to do with a few world wars and their owners preferring t...

Re: Stallion News

Is it any wonder these stallions produce less than stellar results when many of our stellar bloodstock goes to other countries? Keep sending off our top tier horses, mares, stallions, yearlings. When you’re using 2nd rate bloodstock, expect 2nd rate results. Pretty simple. Sure we have some good hor...

Re: Stallion News

Thanks for the update Ridan. My heart breaks to know our champion is gone to another country. It’s been a rough year and following Chrome has been a bright spot in it. Just wish he was appreciated in his home country.

Re: Stallion temperament or personality

From my experience not only genetics, but how horses are treated when they are foals. Some farms handle foals from day one, and treat them with kindness, but set guidelines. These guys usually grow into sensible adults. Other farms are rough, or just total are devoid of human contact. These foals gr...

Re: California Chrome to Japan

His 1/2 brother by Tapit seems to be doing quite well as. 2 year old and is entered in a stakes race Saturday. Funny for those who poo-poo his family, or lack thereof, his little 1/2 brother impressed Coolmore enough to go to 1.1 million to purchase him and now he is having quite a nice 2 year old s...

Re: California Chrome to Japan

Why is this so hard to understand? How would Japanese fans act if every year a foreign country came and purchased a portion of their national champions, classics winners, and fan favorites? How about one of our rich farms go purchase Almond Eye, Orfevre (who has had less breeder interest), Kitasan B...

Re: California Chrome to Japan

Thank you for the links Ridan. Wonderful article which I makes me feel that not everyone in this industry is so cold and uncaring. Many on this site are so dismissive and demeaning of those of us who are upset Chrome and so many of our other champions, male and female, are sold to Japan. We’re told ...

Re: Homozygous grey stallions

Parseghian has a 2/10 temperament according to his stallion listing. What does that mean, that he’s laid back or a fire breather?
