Re: Stallion News

well, so far, between rachel and zen, i wouldn't breed to the boys of either of them. zen's can't outrun a hibernating turtle (tho her tapit isn't quite as sluggish as her other), and rachel's couldn't stay together to race more than once. i guess we'll see how it goes in the shed, but...

Re: Retirements 2016

Laoban retired with soft tissue injury following morning work. Hopefully the stallion deal will keep "all about taking chances" Guillot from unretiring him as soon as he looks to heal up well. Which, if I recall, was what happened with Moreno (Moreno the horse, that is). https://www.bloodhorse.com/...

Re: Curlin Foals

Terra Promessa tired to finish 7th, beaten 6 lengths. Have not seen the replay but the chart indicates that she got a little tired after stalking the pace.

Curlish Figure finished 9th, beaten 15 3/4 lengths.

Re: Curlin Foals

I swear I saw something about Keen Ice being possibly aimed toward the Pegasus, but now I can't find the article. :roll: Well, I suppose his connections can't be accused of being too conservative with him. Good luck with that. Terra Promessa is entered in the She's All In Handicap at Remington Park...

Re: Curlin Foals

Exaggerator has been retired to WinStar, it was announced before the Breeders Cup. Stellar Wind finished 4th (I think) in the BC Distaff and was subsequently withdrawn from the Keeneland November Sale with the idea that she would race again next year -- YAY!! Keen Ice finished 3rd in the BC Classic...

Re: Curlin Foals

Curalina finished 2nd to Cavorting in the Gr.1 Personal Ensign at Saratoga on 8/27. Exaggerator continues to mystify both fans and bettors by failing to fire in the Travers. I have never known of any horse to have such an affinity (or as the case may be, dependence) for a wet track. Has anyone else...

Re: Curlin Foals

Off The Tracks finished 3rd in the Gr.1 Test at Saratoga on 8/6. She ran a really good race, gave 6lbs to the winner/4lbs to the 2nd place finisher, and was beaten only a length after being right there for (what seemed to me) a really fast early pace.

Re: Curlin Foals

Curlin had an absolutely monster weekend. Not only did Stellar Wind take the Hirsch, but Curalina dusted the competition by 9.25 lengths in the Shuvee, Connect won his sire's namesake race at Saratoga by a length, and Exaggerator took the muddy Haskell Invitational and atoned for the Belmont clunker.

Stellar Wind won the Clement L Hirsch at Del Mar by a head/neck over Beholder. Great race by two classy ladies! The victory also bumped Stellar Wind's earnings over $1m, congratulations to Curlin's newest millionaire. :D http://www.equibase.com/premium/chartEmb.cfm?track=DMR&raceDate=07/30/2016&cy=...

Re: Retirements 2016

Rachel's Valentina has been retired. After her last two races I kinda got the feeling that she either had something going on physically or was done being a racehorse and was ready to be a mom.
