Re: 2019 Preakness Stakes

I think the biggest shocker isnt War Front siring a Triple Crown race winner... its a Sadler's Wells mare producing a War Front one LOL Bahahaha this is true. However, the female family also produced Aldebaran (multiple G1 winner on dirt) in addition to a bunch of turf stakes winners, so it's not s...

Re: 2019 Preakness Stakes

oh my gosh thank you for posting that glorious win by dear Gander!! what a smart horse - he rode a perfect race - didn't bother anyone, stalked the leader - and knew when to make his move for the lead - one of my most favorite races ever! I remember watching it live and could not stop smiling after...

Because his brother sure does. :P Oxbow more closely resembles a Welsh pony. :lol: :lol: :lol: The Stallion Register has Oxbow listed as 16hh. That must be with his high heels on.

Ugh, right? I'm more looking forward to this week's Grey's Anatomy season finale than the Game of Thrones finale. That's just messed up.

Re: Kentucky Derby : Do you agree with the stewards decision?

In many areas (and esp where I live, ugh) the speed limit is routinely and informally disregarded. One can routinely drive around 25 mph over the limit on the highway without getting a ticket. If that informal understanding between the cops and the drivers were to change and tickets given out more ...

Re: Kentucky Derby : Do you agree with the stewards decision?

To me, that's like saying "some people break the speed limit when they drive so we should just do away with speed limits." Hopefully this means that there will be more consistency going forward. In many areas (and esp where I live, ugh) the speed limit is routinely and informally disregarded. One c...

Re: Horse Racing is now officially a joke

If Tony Stark was known as a war profiteer earlier on, all The Sport of Kings is to me is horse profiteering. Phar Lap. Alydar. Exceller. Ferdinand. So I decided to read this whole thread for entertainment purposes and I got stuck on this for some reason. Why is Phar Lap on this list? He was neithe...

Re: 2019 Preakness Stakes

Kudos to Bill Mott for putting his horse first. I'd rather a trainer care about his horse's health than run them when they are not at 100%. I swear that every time I read twitter comments I wonder if they really only care about the horse's safety/health right after they die. Bill Mott is one of the...

Re: Kentucky Derby : Do you agree with the stewards decision?

I guess you would have to ask the stewards why the Derby has so many different standards. you know, like for every other year during the running of this race, we just look the other way when questionable stuff is happening out there on the track.... except for the 2019 running. talk about different...

The writing is so bad lol. It's horrific. If it wasn't so close to the end I'd stop watching. It's the greatest story no one wanted to finish properly -- the author or the HBO writers. So true. Dammit, I like how Lost ended. I hated the middle seasons of the show but I thought the last season was f...

I am hoping War of Will comes out of this just fine and they run him here. I never gave up on him and think he's in good form right now. I will likely be watching from my phone. Why are people born and why do they then have events during the TC series? :lol: :lol: Well, they ruled out Maximum Secur...

How he feels about it is not the point. The horse impeded several others. How should those owners and connections feel? You're not entitled to anything just because you put money into it. This.

Nice win by Serengeti Empress! And yay for Liora to get up for second!

Glad Positive Spirit seems to be okay. And Bellafina proved again that she's just not a fan of Churchill.

Re: 2019 Kentucky Oaks

Jerry Bailey just said that Street Band's jockey is Sophie Turner. It's a big week for Sophie - big Game of Thrones episode and then she got married to one of those Jonas boys and now she's a jockey despite being quite tall.

Of course, he MEANT Sophie Doyle, actual jockey.

Re: 2019 Kentucky Oaks

I love that photo of Jaywalk walking the shedrow with her equine nebulizer. My kid used a nebulizer (and still does, when really sick) for his asthma. So I guess I'm rooting for her. I'm also rooting for Chocolate Kisses and Liora because of their female families. Chocolate Kisses is out of Brownie ...

I've been more a fan of Arya since she came back to Westeros. I didn't much care for her storyline overseas, although I suppose it made her a stone cold killer. But Gendry likes her and I like Gendry and he seems to have survived, so I guess she's alright. Sansa bugged me in the first season but she...
