I know he isn't registered black, but does anyone have any other pictures of Long Range Toddy? https://www.remingtonpark.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/CleverTrevorDraw.jpg https://cdn-images.bloodhorse.com/i/bloodhorse-images/2019/03/08db895ab9d44b158003b03f201f6e57.jpg?preset=sh This is an incred...

Re: The Rebel Parts I and II

I have a genuine question about the use of whips. I understand that a whip needs to be carried because you need it to control the horse if it begins putting itself, the rider and possibly the rest of the field in danger (e.g. coming across into the path of another horse). But does whipping a horse ...

Re: Stallion News

It kills me that Einstein wasn't loved by breeders. He was a really good racehorse on any surface, raced through ( IIRC ) his seventh year and retired sound, handsome as heck and had a good temperament. Also provided an interesting outcross with his Spend a Buck bloodline. I think he's only 16 or 1...

Wonder where we can find recent pictures of Sea Hero. If there are any.

Is he still around?
He is still alive but was pensioned in 2015 so I don't think there are any recent photos of him online.

Re: horses with unique coloring/facial markings

It could also be that they just did not register the paint marked foals. Back in the "old days" horses with lots of white (particularly white legs, or with blue eyes) were considered to be less sound or less quality and so the horses that were perhaps minimally expressed frame overo or sabino didn'...

10yo h Vedelago (Red Clubs - Queen Shy, by Marju), 1st at Turfway Park (3/2/19). 50 - 13-5-6, $512,071.
How did an Irish-bred Italian G1 winner wind up in $5k claiming races at Turfway? And intact, no less.

Re: Battle of Midway

Qvale probably kept his horses in light training during the breeding season. It likely kept them easier to handle. A performance breed stallion is kept in training during breeding season. I can't see any reason a Tbred stallion should be any different other than the concept that Tbreds are holy. ;)...

Re: Battle of Midway

And here we almost had a positive story of a subfertile stallion returning to training and regaining his top form. RIP. Condolences to the connections. Has a horse ever successfully done this? I wonder how hormones play into it with bone density and stuff. This game is painful. Assault. He wasn't q...

Re: 2019 Foals

Were Texas Gem's ears always like that? What could possibly cause that? She wasn't born that way, but she had cysts removed from her ears as a yearling and they wound up floppy. It is also possible for lop ears to be hereditary. Lop ears are considered a fault in every horse breed so they have been...

Really. Is it just me who can't see Horsebagger's photo? Am I doing something wrong? I've tried using Edge as well as Chrome as my browser.

I'm happy to hear about successful foalings, but I just love looking at baby pictures (in case you haven't noticed how many I post).
I can't see it either.

Cool race but it's hard to get excited knowing the best horses in it won't race again. The older I get the more I appreciate the NX1 types.

Re: 2019 Pegasus World Cup

The headline is puzzling. Jimmy doesn't look too excited to me, but this boy has been training pretty well although mostly on dirt. Yeah, likely Stronach's call. I hadn't even noticed that. Pretty funny. The layoff line is 45 days. How many Stakes horses frequently run back that quickly? Any horse ...
