Re: Tragedy hits Santa Anita again

I concur, research is the real world in this case as most of the data we have gathered is from real race horses. There aren't sufficient amounts of studies with all parameters controlled due to the nature of racing. So most studies and most research is drawn from the real world. Don't automatically ...

Wow that was an absolutely star-studded field and she demolished them in a hand ride. Just pounded some big G1 horses into submission.

Re: 2019 List of Mares Bred

I'm actually shocked Justify got that many at that price.
Not shocked about Mendy.

My brain also for some reason had decided Afleet Alex and FuPeg were pensioned.

Keep in mind for Shaman Ghost that he switched midway through the season so did not get a full season to cover in KY.

Hollendorfer banned from Breeders Cup this year. Good riddance.
???
Did I miss something?
The Stronach Group arbitrarily decided to ban him because 4 of his horses broke down at SA this year. How quick they were to wash themselves of any responsibility regarding track safety.

Re: Breeders Cup Discussion?

I wonder if Facebook and other social media options have pulled those regulars away from this old-style website forum. That seems to have been the fate of many discussion boards like this, which have gone from thriving to nearly dead in just a couple of years or less. I think this year has been tou...

Re: 2019 Two-Year-Olds

After finishing 7th in his debut, on turf, Prince of Pharoahs offered a convincing win his second time out, running a mile on dirt. (American Pharoah x My Dixie Doodle by Dixie Union). He's a gorgeous almost black-looking dark brown colt. I think he is so far the only Pharoah I've noticed running t...

Re: 2019 Fasig-Tipton November Sale

Wasn't there an article posted on this very forum a while back that showed that the notion great race mares don't produce well is essentially a myth? The article showed the statistics confirmed that GSW mares were more likely to produce blacktype earnings. I think the issue is people have unrealisti...

Re: Across the pond

Winx, Beholder, Zenyatt... was going to say Ouija Board but I think she retired at 5. Makybe Diva arugably had her best season at 6.

And I don't want to talk about what could have been with Pharoah :lol:

Re: New Conformation Photos

Here's a recent one of Shaman Ghost . This one is better because he isn't on a photoshopped transparent background. Guy in the video describes him as being "just a tick over 16.2 HH." https://www.paulickreport.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/10/19_0925_Shaman-Ghost_mw_mw-1883.jpeg https://www.paulickre...
