Re: Trying to find a horse - Henrythenavigator x Pretty Prol

Asking Ashford is on her list, but she would rather avoid it unless she were, for example, looking to purchase him as an ottb. Honestly, I may email and asking in her stead, because I'm very curious about this horse, haha. Btw, how do I look up whether a horse has a death certificate or a export req...

Trying to find a horse - Henrythenavigator x Pretty Prolific

My friend worked at Ashford for a while and fell in love with a 2012 Colt out of Pretty Prolific. He is registered ostensibly as Newport Tower, but also comes up as Pretty Henry and Noble Henry in some databases. He was nominated to the BC and never sold at public auction. But she is very interested...

Re: New Conformation Photos

I'm always so pleasantly surprised by how nicely put together Chrome is. I've always liked him (a lot, if any of you were in his Belmont thread...lol), but he sure is a handsome fella. Is it just me, or are Anchor Down and Karakonite both standing on a slight hill? I don't know, it just seems like t...

Re: Songbird

So, so sad to see her retire, but also so glad this was caught when it was. To know that she is safe is beyond measure.

Looking forward to the November fireworks!

Re: Happiness

From what I've read it's better if you have the "chair" for the ball. I've yet to get one, mostly because my current job doesn't allow it. The research is in infancy; I've seen some articles swear it promotes spinal shrinkage when others don't. I need to get paid to get my JSTOR account. My evidenc...

Re: Zenyatta News

I wonder if Lane's End is getting any inquires from Warmblood breeders? :P Seriously, it wouldn't be hard for any TB farm to set up a second revenue stream for their stallions, by using semen collection for AI in other breeds. Set a lower, second-tier charge for other breeds, knowing that Jockey Cl...

Re: Saratoga Breakdowns

I said this in the Del Mar thread. Horses are at an increased risk when they change track surfaces. That is undoubtedly part of the reason why we see an increase when horses move from where they're normally stabled for these boutique meets. This is very true. It's true every year. But if the number...

Are the horses running at Suffolk the same market share as those running at 'Toga?

The boy had two big money yearlings at FT Saratoga yesterday! $1 million and $750k. I'm on my phone so not great at pulling up the info, but very exciting stuff.

Was I the only one who thought Jon made up the cave drawings to convince Dany to fight for him? They looked like amateur chalk art. This is how I think of Jon every time he starts on about the White Walkers: http://i.imgur.com/UaLpJOK.png But, yes, the moment he said "there's something else you nee...

Re: TV Discussion Thread

I've loved this whole season, but mostly I just want my Starks together. So. I'm doing alright, lol.

I am aggressively pro-Sansa, but if she doesn't slaughter Littlefinger (whose face sends me into a flying rage), your version with Arya using his face to kill Cersei is absolutely delicious.

GAME. OF. T H R O N E S. That episode was amazing. I was freaking out basically the whole time. Pretty sure the last time more than two Starks were in the same place was when Ned was getting his head chopped off...whew. I love that this show is coming to a conclusion, because it's so much more fun ...

If I were gonna live anywhere but home (Missouri) or where I am now (Vermont-ish area), it'd be Chicago or Twin Cities. Chicago has so much going on, great food, cheaper than NYC across the board, people are neat (though ridiculous, but all cities are), and public transit is so solid. I'm biased bec...

Stellar Wind is one of my all-time favorites, and not just because of her daddy. What a game mare. These older gals really keep racing fun for me regardless of what else is going on.
