Re: In Memoriam 2019

Such horrible news. He was a good, sound, handsome racehorse, with a rare and royal pedigree. He would have been a welcome addition to the stallion ranks as an important son of the late Street Cry and Delta Princess, and a horse who raced well past his 3yo season.
Damn. :cry:

Re: 2019 BC Turf Sprint

It's too bad Battash's last race discouraged his connections from bringing him over. When he's on (and behaving in the stalls), he's a rocket...and IIRC, he likes his turf on the firmer side.

Re: Across the pond

I'm sorry to see that Magical will miss the BC and has, in fact, been retired. It would have been a treat to see this outstanding filly run at Santa Anita. :(

Re: Tragedy hits Santa Anita again

I can't find anything about GQ CoverGirl on either Bloodhorse or Paulick.
IMHO, racing has a problem when civilian media run stories about the latest breakdowns...and the racing media doesn't. :? :oops:
Sticking its head in the sand and hoping the bad news goes away is not going to help.

Re: 2020 Matings

Coolmore may end up stacked with good Scat Daddy sons. With No Nay Never, Caravaggio, Mendelssohn and Justify, they've invested in SC's line pretty deeply. Coolmore also had Souix Nation, but I'm not sure he's standing at one of their farms. :?

Re: Stallion News

I was wondering if Korean racing, like China, doesn't like horse names with any reference to war or violence. I've seen quite a few horses bought for Hong Kong racing that had their names changed because their original moniker had words like War, Battle, Revolt or Rebellion. IIRC, the War Front colt...
