I was surprised to see the gender was already listed, does anyone know how long that information usually takes to trickle in? You're supposed to file ...

Alsvid (to an unnamed farm in OK): http://live.drf.com/nuggets/35167 Building upon that.... "He came back out of the work and wasn't 100%," said Hartman...... He's got a little minor injury to his leg. Actually, the horse is perfect today, but it's one of those situations where he can't go forward....

Goodzapper finished 6th, beaten 19 lengths. Chart says he was blocked right after the start when another horse bobbled and blocked his path. Hopefully next time he gets a clean trip. http://www.equibase.com/premium/chartEmb.cfm?track=GP&raceDate=02/15/2017&cy=USA&rn=6 ------------------------------...

Goodzapper (3yo gelding out of Glinda the Good) is entered for his debut today at Gulfstream Park in Race 6 (6f MSW). I really liked Glinda The Good when she was racing and am very interested to see how Hard Spun (another personal favorite) does as a broodmare sire. Good luck and safe return!

I simply cannot believe nobody has a thread following Ghostzapper babies. Iliad and McCraken gave their sire a great weekend with Iliad winning the San Vincente on the west coast and McCraken winning the Sam S Davis on the east coast. Iliad is now 2 for 3 and McCraken is 4 for 4. Iliad is tentativel...
