Re: Hard Spun Foals

Rohrbacher won race #7 at Colonial Downs today. His record is 5-3-1-1. Surprised he was in a claiming race with a decent record like that.

Re: Travers 2019

The audio on Fox's telecast was awful. Horrible buzzing making it hard to hear the commentators. Anyone else notice that? Some of their video was wonky, too. Out of focus and such. They need more practice televising racing before they mess up another major event like that.

Great race, though.

Re: Travers 2019

Ah, good, thanks for posting that. I thought I had heard or read somewhere it was Tuesday for the draw, but couldn't find it anywhere, so decided I might have heard wrong and asked. I see that Spinoff didn't enter. Timing wrong for him, I guess, since he just ran 2 weeks ago. But waiting for the PA ...

Re: Horrible Names For Horses

There is a Hard Spun 3yo colt named Hard Belle. The name made me scratch my head. "Belle" is definitely feminine. Maybe they were going for Hard Beauty, but it didn't work. He's a speed demon and was in some of the spring prep races. Poor thing was badly managed. New connections now and I hope he wi...

Re: Hard Spun Foals

Predicament won race # 12 at Sapporo in Japan today. Her record is 6-3-1-0.

Hard Spun has frequent winners in Japan, which is remarkable considering he was only there one season, I think, but I seldom post them because replays are hard to find.

Re: Hard Spun Foals

Steve Haskin had this to say about Spinoff and the Travers.... As for the influence of the Belmont Stakes, many believe runner-up Tacitus was the best horse after a wide trip throughout from the outside post and bumping hard with War of Will in the upper stretch and then lugging in. Tax was fourth, ...

Re: 2019 Two-Year-Olds

I can't recall seeing the name Sheikh Albadou in a pedigree before. I read that he died of a heart attack during his first season at stud, so, only one foal crop. That would account for his name not turning up a lot. Not quite. He entered stud in 1993 in Kentucky, and did suffer a heart attack in h...

Re: 2019 Two-Year-Olds

Green Light Go won the Saratoga Special in dominating fashion. With his size and pedigree ( Hard Spun out of a Pleasantly Perfect mare) , the tall bay should be able to handle increasing distance. I hope we get to see him in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile. I can't recall seeing the name Sheikh Albadou ...

Re: Hard Spun Foals

Hoping Todd Pletcher decides to send Spinoff to the Travers now that Maximum Security and Game Winner won't run there. Spinoff ran lights out at Saratoga a few days ago. Travers would be 2 weeks between races for Spinoff. https://www.timesunion.com/sports/article/Saratoga-notes-14294080.php Earlier...

Today's 1st race at Saratoga was a hurdle race, which SNAP DECISION won by 38 1/2 lengths. Chart said the rest of the field was not in the same zipcode! Lol! Good for him. May have found his calling!
