Re: Horrible Names For Horses

Not to mention that in the particular case of Arab stallions, the "handling" management that goes into prepping them to show at liberty (IMO) pretty much creates a scenario where the horse ends up having little respect for halter or handler. :roll:

Re: Racing in Japan

Hmm perhaps but I think compared to the rest of the field, he's not as established as the others. He's just turned four and aside from the Yasuda Kinen, he only had two GIII and some stakes wins. If you look at the other 4 yr olds, and Admire Mars, he's just beginning to make a name for himself. 8-)...

Re: Racing in Japan

Fuji TV put up an Almond-Eye-centric replay and I can't help but wonder if only Christophe Lemaire had taken her outside... b/c once she isn't behind a wall of horses, or pinched between them trying to move up? When he finally pushes the button she's in another gear and she'd have caught them in ano...

Re: Santa Anita 2019

I think your friend with a drug problem analogy is a good one. In both situations, those of us who care so much are without the ability to make things better . Stories in the major papers and other media beget the attention of the general public and politicians. That their perspective may not be co...

I was wondering if it was partly due to the tail string on the cooler, it's all bunched in his tail too. Glad he's not lame!

Re: Take Charge Lady

Yes, she passed (i assume euthanized).. she had a back injury, or problem with her back. The guy said due to old age (would have been 20 this yr) Couldnt get up or go down easily.... Im surprised it wasnt announced at all esp shes a famous mare... not like Zenyatta, but in her right. Isnt she owned...
