Re: Keeneland January

Curious to see how much #44 She's Grumpy from the great WV-bred dynasty of Roberta Grump will go for. I followed her dam and half-brother (and her aunts, and her cousins...). Thanks Wow, gotta give props to owners of Tizso, selling her at age 25..... :evil: Really? That is cold-blooded. I guess they...

Re: Stallion News

Both Old Topper and Sea of Secrets are senior stallions, so that's no surprise...but I'm really sorry to see Coil on that list. :( I'd so hoped he would be that successful sire son that Point Given hasn't had. I wonder if they've completely given up on him and he'll be gelded, or if they'll wait an...

Kind of old news, he was bought along with Bodemeister last month. Myboycharlie was bought before those two.

Irish War Cry

His conformation is lovely but I don't get why some farms photograph their stallions in their winter woollies. Hoppertunity has his on too but he seems to grow a thinner coat whereas Irish War Cry looks quite fuzzy.

Re: Caribe races this past weekend

According to the Blood Horse, this is the third year that the Caribe Classico (I just know I butchered that name! :oops: ) was held at Gulfstream. A 45-1 shot from Venezuela won the classic. For me, two of the most enjoyable series of the year this past week at Gulfstream - the Caribe, and the Clai...

Re: Stallion News

Wow, props to them for working on building their breeding program. They’ve purchased some nice, proven stallions. I don’t know much about Turkish breeding/racing though. Has Turkey produced anything of note recently? They send a few to Dubai every year and have placed a few times, most recently wit...

They also recently bought Hemsworth , a G2 winning son of Bernardini whose second dam is half to Vindication. Last week.

Re: New Conformation Photos

I hadn't heard of either Beaumec de Houelle or Tunis, but they both are handsome and appealing. And Skipshot is absolutely the darkest liver chestnut I've ever seen. Both of them are hurdlers, and with their nice balanced frames they sure look the part. France is unusual in that they don't automati...

Re: California Chrome to Japan

Idk about you all, but I'm tired of the American thoroughbred model. I'm thinking I need to just focus on European, Australian and Japanese racing. At least their horses are bred for longevity and run for more than 6 races. Not the Europeans who also retire their top 3yos every year like clockwork ...

I hope he pulls a Take Charge Indy and his first few crops do so well he's brought back. Not because I'm a "Chromie". I want to keep our classic winners available to American breeders.

Re: 2019 Eclipse Awards-Predictions?

Champion Steeplechase Horse should be Winston C with his Saratoga G1 sweep but the voters (the few who actually bother to vote in this category) will pick the Grand National winner (Brain Power) as usual.

I just heard them say he pulled up...hoping he's ok the sport does NOT need a fatality
Wicklow Brave's death a few weeks ago kind of broke me, I only watched the BC Classic today and of course another horse goes down. I hate this sport right now.
