Re: 2019 Pegasus World Cup

Early excellence is absolute excellence and extreme excellence. Nonsense! The history of horse racing is chock full of both types of champions -- horses who were early bloomers and late bloomers. Do the names John Henry, Forego and Cigar mean anything to you? They are only two examples of the late ...

Re: Accelerate vs Justify HOTY

Congratulations on the sport for getting this correct. It was the single greatest litmus test in the 50 years I have followed this sport. In fact, there would have been little reason to continue to follow thoroughbred racing if this decision had been butchered. That's the way I looked at it. It wou...

William Nicks bought Make Music For Me for...$1,000 at Keeneland January.
Except for horses with elite pedigrees and/or racing or producing records, the prices were very low at Keeneland January this year.

What an endearing pic of mom and wee one - on a little mattress of alfalfa no less, lol.
Endearing is the perfect description. What a lovely photo of mom and her newborn.

Re: New Conformation Photos

If I were a breeder, especially one interested in breeding a good turf horse, I think I'd rather have a 15.3-hand, balanced Scat Daddy than a heavy-on-the-forehand, 17+-hand hulking Scat Daddy who was retired after, what, four months of racing with leg/foot 'issues.' :P 8-) I agree. The breed-shapi...

Re: Stallion Headshots Collection

This is not, strictly speaking, a pure head shot, but it is an incredible, fun, head-on shot of the very athletic California Chrome. I can almost hear the boing-boing from those springy legs, :lol: https://scontent-iad3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/49238888_1972997759443559_7023983417024839680_n.jpg?_nc_...

To each their own, but yeah.

Speaking of Big C, though, he does have a new conformation photo. I much prefer it to the previous one.
I wish greys stayed that way instead of turning white. "Big C" is really quite beautiful at this point in his life.

Re: 2019 Foals

Checked in on FP this morning. Love and Pride is in her stall eating, and covered in mud from an apparently lovely roll. :lol:

Also, it's a real pleasure to see a daughter of Winning Colors among the FP mares this year.

Oh, the foal shed. Where they go from looking like cute little fuzzy caterpillars to moth-eaten ragamuffins... :lol:

This page has some nice photos of the stages of foal shed with a few different colors:

Little handsome is just shedding out in a few places, like his front knees and butt too.
Yes...he's got large and small patches of darker color even in his mane. Is it possible for a foal born chestnut to shed out to bay or brown?

Re: New Conformation Photos

Although this isn't a standard conformation shot, Chrome's flawless natural dressage-like trot says a lot about his conformation. https://scontent-iad3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/48164870_1947226328660124_4439825509123096576_o.jpg?_nc_cat=109&_nc_ht=scontent-iad3-1.xx&oh=0472797579bdeda8ed45846da5e09d8...
