Re: New Conformation Photos

Rule # 1 of photography is "Don't have a telephone pole poking out of the subject's head!" Okay, the building posts aren't coming out of WF's head, but they're still distracting. B-a-a-a-d. They are better than the ones in front of the trees. But I agree everywhere they take conformation shots aren...

Re: Favorite Photos of Race Horses

I love how big boisterous Thoroughbreds can be so gentle with children. Horses are amazing.

Re: New Conformation Photos

The Turkish Jockey Club got a new conformation photo for Tu Brutus . http://www.yarisdergisi.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/12/TU-BRUTUS-%C3%96N-SAYFA.png They normally use the previous confo photos for their new stallions but Tu Brutus's old one was not super flattering https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DSq...

Re: New Conformation Photos

The background is too dark for bay horses and with the tree it's too busy IMO. Algorithm's looks ok but the lighting in the last three is awful.

Re: New Conformation Photos

LOL I read that as Silver ware and expected to scroll up (I'm reading from most recent first) to see a gorgeous grey... not displeased by the hunka hunka bay boy at all, though. :lol: His sire Silver Frost (IRE) certainly fits the first description. http://babolnamenes.hu/wp-content/uploads/2018/11...

Gorgeous horse. Very classic build which makes sense as most of his wins were at 2400m.

Japanese war horse Sakura Shiny (Sakura President) went out a winner on New Year's Day at Kochi Racecourse. The 14 y/o led gate-to-wire and the not-gelding hang up the tack with a record of 76: 22-8-6, with earnings surpassing 100 million yen. He won several low-level stakes and placed in a few lis...

Re: The Jockey Club & AI

Allowing AI hasn't stopped the harness folks from retiring their best horses after their 3yo seasons. A rule was even enacted in 2011 by several stakes administrators (following the early retirements of superstars like Donato Hanover, Deweycheatumnhowe and Somebeachsomewhere) requiring stallions to ...

Not sure where to post this: @francesjkaron At Tampa yesterday, a 2yo named Catch Ya Later Bro (Fury Kapcori) broke his maiden. The interesting thing? His 2yo full brother Twin Turbo is already a winner. That's right – 2yo full brother. Catch Ya Later Bro & Twin Turbo are twins, o/o the graded stak...

Re: Favorite Horses of the Decade (2009/10 - 2019/20)

Russell Road was my guy.

Also, not a Thoroughbred but I really enjoyed following Foiled Again's quest for 100 wins and his cross-country farewell tour.

Re: 2019 Pegasus World Cup

Maybe they were counting on owners to have some semblance of a conscience and not run their horses in Saudi frickin' Arabia? I feel like $3 million should be enough for anyone but hey, I'm not filthy rich.
