Re: Waiting for news on ...

On a sad note my brother and I had a 2 year old out of Groupie Doll’s half sister break his back this morning in a freak accident in a paddock at the training center where he was preparing to come to me. It’s sad that he had to be put down and such a nice animal to be around. So sorry to hear about...

Re: 2018 Fountain Of Youth

Caton just passed along the troublesome news that Fly So High, who won the Davona Dale, was pulled up on the gallop-out. Jose apparently thought she just didn't feel right; she seemed to walk soundly as she loaded onto the horse ambulance. Update later, hopefully? On track they announced McGaughey ...

Re: Siblings (and offspring) of well-known horses

Figarella's Queen ( MdO x Nereid ) is about to run in the 13th at Gulfstream, a 1-mile MSW on the turf for 3yo fillies. ETA: She won. Went to the front and improved her position. :D Had a nice kick in the stretch...did her mom proud. I remember Nereid, watched the replay if just to see what she loo...

Re: What does "stamp his get" mean?

Wonderful discussion. Thank you everyone. One reason I posed this question about stamping get aside from the fact that it has been a hard concept for me to fully understand, is that I like Gun Runner. I wish him well at stud, but don't see much resemblance between him and either his sire, Candy Rid...

Re: In memoriam 2017

Favoured Speighgal (2014 f) at Gulfstream today in the Tropical Park Oaks. How horrible, I was not at the track today but was reading the results on Bloodhorse and noticed Bernadiva, Speighal wasn't listed in the results. Good that I've seen this before watching the replay (now I'll skip it). That ...

Bernadiva (Bernadini x Evening Jewel) finished 5th today in the Tropical Park Oaks. Even though she's raced at Gulfstream before I never noticed a daughter of Evening Jewel in any races - really liked her mom).

Re: Clasico del Caribe

Ooh, I didn't realize the Serie Hipica del Caribe was at Gulfstream this year. It makes sense though, there's no way Camarero can host the event after all the damage it sustained from Maria. It was really a fun day, a lot of people flew in for the race and there was a large number of local Puerto R...

Clasico del Caribe

It rained heavy early and is still dreary but there is a huge crowd - other than for Florida Derby day I've never seen so many people here. A totally different vibe, fun atmosphere, but they're totally trashing the place.

Re: BC Complaint Thread

Had 2 great days at the track, my only complaint would be the lack of food choices available unless you made it to the infield which was quite a hike. It was packed today but everyone seemed to enjoy themselves.
