Re: In Memoriam

CAUTION. This is a sad, horrific site but they wrote that 85 horses died in NY so far this year. Looking a little further into the site, there was more. Videos. I do not want to see them. The owner of the site is Patrick J Battuello. I have no idea if this is credible or not, but man, it is horrible...

Re: Eblouissante

Guessing Darley will be interested in her. They could breed her to Street Cry and then Tapit. Then ship her to Ireland to be bred to Sea The Stars and/or Frankel. Vertigineux produced a Street Cry colt, and is bred to Tapit for 2014. Zenyatta's Tapit colt has been stunning from birth. Time will tell...

Re: Cozmic One

I love this colt. He is so elegant. I don't know if he has his mama's gumption and drive, but he is beautiful and built to run. And I thought he was quiet for a young animal leaving the barn alone. Even the lawn mower didn't bother him. He never twitched his ears that I saw in the video. Makes sense...

Re: Sea The Stars foals

Wonderful! I read where John Oxx has had a virus. I'm guessing he's had sick horses or has he himself been sick? Also any word on Zarkava's STS's baby?

Re: Sales/Rescues

According to this story Golden Gate has a database for retired TB that rescues can access. "...Morey said trainers and owners at Golden Gate Fields now know they are being watched, and can’t just give their thoroughbreds away to just anyone. “There are people that will bring their children, say the ...

Re: Eblouissante

Maybe her new owner will leave her with John S. and she'll continue racing? We knew things would change after her breeder/owner's death. Estate settlements and all.

Re: Sales/Rescues

Not sure what "He is an Admin" means though. Of what. He could be an Admin of the Facebook page it was posted on? Yes, that is what it means. There is a special FB page, "Bring Centerfold Kid Home" https://www.facebook.com/groups/645275088849900/ O'Brien is one of three administrators of this page....

Update on Centerfold Kid, according to a post on Lucky Starz FB page, someone talked to the owner yesterday and the horse had HYPP. http://www.aqha.com/About/Content-Pages/About-the-Association/Services/~/link.aspx?_id=222E6490C1B04EDB9618B2CFAB7063E4&_z=z Also, there is new information on the horse...

Contact (216) 870-6966 with any information. Another 'breach of contract' story - this is why we need to scan for microchips a...

Re: Sales/Rescues

What happened to the second person that caused him to send the horse "direct to slaughter"? It sounds like the horse did something. Why didn't he call the original owner and tell him to come get his horse? Or did he and no one came? There is a name on those registration papers and if it didn't match...

Re: Sales/Rescues

Flanders, I'm guessing it was at Mike's Auction in CA on September 14th. It was when Ziggypop alerted to Tribal Legend being at risk that they also mentioned the QH with his awards, registration papers and new shoes. Maybe a QH rescue helped?

Anyone know where he is and his owner's plans for him?
