Re: RunHappy

It is good he is retired before he was hurt badly. Before he was sent to the training track filled with painkillers and dropped. Perhaps his injuries are less about inherited weakness and more about environmental conditions and management. Where he landed gives him a chance to be bred to quality mar...

Re: Corona Del Inca

Thank you for giving her a place, WEL. Someone joked before the race that may be she would win it all... if this was the filly they were talking about, I am not certain it is. What is heart-wrenching is neither Bloodhorse nor Paulick have this story featured. I know it is a negative, but to not reco...

Re: RunHappy

Maybe this is related to the suspected injury that was supposed to be the reason for the fallout between the owners and Borell last year. Ms. Borell felt there was something off, but the owner sent the horse to the track to remove lactic acid. Borell advocated for the horse and was kicked to the cur...

Re: Maria Borell

Where did all these horses come from? Maria seemed to be struggling since Jim McIngvale and Laurie Wohlers dismissed her last year. She only had a handful of horses then, so where in the past six months or so, did she become responsible for so many? Were their owners paying their bills? I haven't fo...

Re: Zenyatta News

Zenyatta looks relaxed and comfortable. In the one video it shows people coming up to take them back to the barn and it was precious to watch Zenyatta turn and walk to them. Vixana danced around them-- beyond reach, but she followed as they walked back. Skipping! It looks like they are adjusting to ...

Does anyone know if there was a necropsy done? And if the foal had any white markings other than his blaze?

Re: California Chrome

Perhaps the owners believe the horse's value today is more likely to be on the track. They've a competitive runner. Even if he was in high demand as a sire, it would take him a while to earn millions of dollars. So his current claim to fame is his racing talent. When the proposed race for $12 millio...

Ann has the most beautiful smile. She is so joyful. All the pictures of her with Zenyatta reflect a joyful reassurance. And the photographer captures it in the images. In a world of celebrity, it is yet so personal.

Long Island Sound -Dam is 1/2 to Zenyatta by War Front

This is interesting given his sire is War Front and his dam is half to Zenyatta.

Re: Zenyatta News

What an endearing picture of Zenyatta and Ann. The way the mare's light shaded mane is moving in the breeze... those ears and that soft, soft eye. Look at the size of Zenyatta's head! Half of Ann's body length. How tall is Ann? So what is everyone "feeling" about the sex of the foal? Girl or boy? I'...
