Re: Sales/Rescues

My relatively shaky understanding is that Los Al, for regulatory purposes, is considered a QH meet, and therefore there is some sort of waiver as to regs regarding the TB races they run. CARMA, for instance, has no presence at Los Al at all., Los Al has been granted approval to run a 2-week and a 3...

Re: Siblings (and offspring) of well-known horses

Coming Thru (Dynaformer x Away--half to Eight Belles) finished 12th beaten by 28 1/2 lengths, on October 12, 2013, at KEENELAND in Race 6. Time to think about a next career?

Re: St Nicholas Abbey

It's so nice to see that what they learned from their experience with Barbaro is being put to good use saving other horses! We were hoping that would happen, but to see it with St. Nicholas Abbey is very gratifying. I know he isn't out of danger yet, but it's amazing that he's doing so well!

In addition, there's already a no foal report for Divine Escapade, Meghan's Joy, Protesting, Strike the Sky, Greenery for their 2014 foals. Thanks, starrydreamer. Is that from Greenery's War Front cover? Wasn't she also covered by Blame? My memory might be incorrect. I think the no foal report cove...

@raypaulick just heard from Alonso sister-in- law & brother. He is okay, only sore arm to report. Everything else ok. Thanks for praying.

That's fabulous! Sounds like they got lots of donors very quickly too :-) She had me at that big brown eye, lol. What a great network they have...if anyone can restore her to health, I'm sure SCTR can! Looking forward to positive updates on this one...I hope, I hope...

Re: Smarty Jones' Kids

Ugh. Terrible trip for Res Judicata . He was in good shape early, but almost slid around the turn on a very sloppy track. Got a bit trapped, then had to steady as a horse falling back through the field ended up in front of him. Think he threw in the towel at that point. That horse that caused him t...

Looks like Cymple Rhythm's last race was in Aug 2008. Gotta wonder where she's been since then. Sigh...one horse at a time. I'm on it!

Re: Sales/Rescues

Remember Me Rescue pulled 8yo gelding Handsomely from a low-end Texas auction tonight. He ran 18 days ago at Louisiana Downs. All of this is so scary- I have horses that I follow that have seem to have fallen off the face of the earth, and I have a feeling that some of them ended up like this. :( N...

Yeah, I bet they were shocked. Good for Gail! So establish a committee...how many times do we hear that. I hope due diligence guidelines and penalties are created, but then they have to be enforced. Well at least it's something.
