Re: Sad state of breeding

I know the Jockey Club remains firmly against AI, but I'm beginning to think AI might be the only way to save some of these rare bloodlines. AI would make the situation worse. The vast majority of owners aren't going to send a mare to a stallion simply because he has outcross or rare lines. He need...

Re: Honor Code 2 year olds

I'm with Flanders. I think given the way the yearlings performed at the sales though, that this is already shaping up to be a special crop. Yearling sales prices don't mean much when they hit the track, but we'll see. Honor Code is so interesting. He wasn't precocious, but he won his debut sprintin...

Re: The Gotham Stakes

Opening set it up for a closer but still visually impressive for Haikal. I think Instagrand's owner's hubris penalized him, he should've been back in training sooner and gotten one run under him before this. Why did they run him in the Gotham if they're so anti-Derby? Why not just shelve him until ...

Apparently Pharoah isn’t experiencing the usual slump that sites have when their first 2yos hit the track.

Re: 2019 Three-Year-Olds

Thanks stark I was about to say that from what I remembered of that article it wasn’t about pulling him out of racing completely, or necessarily avoiding the KY Derby, just that the Derby was not an absolute and he’d rather the colt have a nice 3yo season with spaced out starts if necessary, rather ...

Beholder to War Front is a great idea. She might go to Pharoah next year if his first crop does well? Also incredibly thrilled about Treve going to Sea the Stars how exciting! Interesting there aren’t many mares announced to Justify when compared to other stallions including Mendelssohn. Has Love th...

So how much are Chasing Yesterday's ovaries worth now? A G1 winning half sister to a triple crown champion by Tapit.. just as much if not more than her sister Am Cleo, or does the grade one win make that much of a difference? Cleopatra was G1 Placed, but Chasing Yesterday has been more consistent i...
