Re: 2018 Keeneland September Yearling Sale

What are they looking for, beyond pedigree? Conformation? Deportment? Conformation yes, movement ('the walk') as well is a huge factor. Vet exam. And plain ol' attractiveness. A flashy attractive horse will usually go for more than a horse equal in pedigree and maybe even slightly better conformati...

Re: 2018 Keeneland September Yearling Sale

I agree, mariasmon. I figured the Gunthers had a price in mind and he probably wouldn't reach it. 369 is a very flashy Violence colt, with plenty of white above his knee. Sold for 350k. Missed seeing him but found pictures. Courtney Snow @CourtneyNSnow 6h6 hours ago Hip 369 sells today 😍 Violence/S...

Along with the sway back, Major Angel also looks a bit long-backed and short-legged. :?
But her coat is purdy. ;)

Re: Across the pond

The third at Laytown (7 furlongs) was run on a BEACH. Next to the OCEAN. :shock:

Never saw that before.

Re: Travers 2018

Regarding Abel Tasman and Elate, one Bloodhorse commenter summed it as this: I have watched the head on video several times. Both horses change paths in reaction to the jockey's whip. Jose is a right stick and Mike is known as a strong left stick. Both fillies moved toward each other, because they ...

How big is Uncle Mo?
They list him at 16.3, but he's probably 17 hands, if not a little more. Pictures don't really convey how enormous he is, either.
Thanks. It would be something to see him in the flesh.

Re: Horrible Names For Horses

This name evokes a strong, angry emotion. JT's A.T.M. (Bold Chieftain x Neon Princess) I'm guessing you didn't care much then for Caixa Eletronica . As bad as some are, they're just stage names. Most go by more affectionate monnikers in their barns. WarBiscuit I loved that horse. :( And his name so...
