Re: Aptly Named

I always wonder why a horse who is in the clear, winning, and still running strong continues to be hit by the jockey. Perhaps Geepers Creepers felt the same way about it?

Re: Magic Millions Yearling sale

Thank you, Treve!

I loved seeing the pictures of the Animal Kingdom yearlings. He has been a favorite of mine since he first started racing.

Re: Stallion News

Is Smarty Jones registered as a liver chestnut? He must be in the original stallion barn that's attached to the main office. Those stalls are huge. I wonder who has the dubious honor of being in Alydar's old stall of death. There is no sub-category for liver chestnut. All shades of chestnut are sim...

Re: New Conformation Photos

Mucho Macho Man http://i65.tinypic.com/vo23yu.jpg I really want to like this horse, loved him as a race horse. This picture is just horrible, he seems not interested in posing, his head is too low, too much in the background, and I think he needs more weight. I hope he turns into a useful sire. I n...

Re: Stallion News

Funny that you should mention the swimming pool- I asked about that specifically- basically the youngsters go into the pool- mostly for sales prep. No go for Tiz or any of the other stallions. Ah, odd. You'd think those old boys would like the pool. Take some weigh off those old bones and get a nic...

Re: 2015 Keeneland November Sale

Just saw hip 3575 sold without reserve for $1000. I didn't hear any bids, and the auctioneer ended it by saying"Take her out." What is the likely outcome for this mare? She was consigned by Airdrie Stud. She was sired by a (former) Airdrie stallion. She comes from an Airdrie family and is in foal t...

I checked last week on The Jockey Club site and it still had 2014 data.
Those numbers haven't been released yet.

Re: Irish Eyes NOT Smiling today

Been lots of speculation on these boards about what AP's fee was going to be out of the box and I suspect Coolmore principals weren't happy this morning. Rumors of $150,000, which always seemed far fetched to me, but who knows what the ask/actual spread was going to be. Gotta believe the potential ...

Re: Broodmare value?

She is probably worth a great deal more than 32k as a broodmare. She's a winner and half-sister to G2 winner DERBAAS. Her Storm Cat dam is full sister to European champion and G1 winner ALJABR. She was a big, good-looking yearling (I saw her at the sale) and brought 150K. I doubt that she will be s...

Michael Hernon (Gainesway) and Bret Jones (Airdrie) were there (according to TDN) but I don't believe that either of them bought anything.

that worked. thanks. I wouldn't trust anything that guy says. We'll see. I don't either. If that's the case, I'm getting a time machine and asking Frank to stand Ghostzapper for 250k just to smite these people.. I really do like the horse. It's a shame that someone like the Whitneys, or the Phipps,...

Re: Odds set on 'Pharoah' stud fee

You'd be surprised how many are going to be willing to spend a good chunk to breed to the 1st TC winner in 37 years. Also, 200,000 doesn't even put a slight mark on half these breeders wallets. I don't want to think about his stud career right now. AP is the first TC winner in 37 years on the race ...
