Re: Zenyatta News

I'm bemused by all the griping concerning the use of "Z" in the names of Zenyatta's foals, or all of Kitten's Joy's "Kittens." This is not a new practice. Alluding to the sire and/or dam's name is a well-established tradition, whether in horse breeding or pedigreed dogs and cats. And Norwegians. :l...

Re: Grand National

That's really interesting. No way the Jockey Club would allow slower-developing sound (eyeroll!) stock to pollute flat racers! What's interesting is that Weatherby's in the UK has a 'non-thoroughbred register' and allows some of those horses into their thoroughbred stud. From their 'Conditions of E...

Re: Grand National

It is important to note that not all are full TBs, including the winner. Thanks, that was my other question! When you say he's not a full TB, what is the "bit" that's not TB? It's Selle Francais. His sixth dam, Judelle II, was half-thoroughbred, according to the Sport Horse Show and Breed Database.

Re: Foals of 2014

Do we know of any twins making it to the track- either one or both? Stop on Red (1959) and Go on Green (1959) were twins. Stop on Red started 51 times with a record of 7-5-9; Go on Green started 32 times, with a record of 7-3-9. Stop on Red was Spectacular Bid's granddam. It's very rare for both tw...

Re: Large Heart Gene

In her third book, Marianna Haun says there are two versions of the large heart gene, one passed down through Eclipse and one from the Darley Arabian (which is what Secretariat had). The Darley heart gene is passed with a skeleton that has one less lumbar vertebrae, which gives the horse a shorter b...
