Equibase Responsive (Mobile) Redesign

I understand that sites need to move to a responsive design to stay competitive, but has anyone on a mobile device checked the results for a horse and found that page in the new design in any way helpful? You can't visually compare data, you have to scroll through every single race one by one. I sen...

Re: Stallion News

Lucky Pulpit got 44 mares last year, so I don't think his book would be too much different this year. They didn't change his fee for this year, did they?

Re: California Chrome

And really, people calling the farm?? Geeze. Just sit back and wait for the news to filter out. If the horse died, it will take some time to draft out the announcement. Not to mention they're probably upset. I'd chalk this up to Chromies--not fans of Chrome, but the ones who call him their "sweet b...

Re: Royal Delta has died

I've been so sad about this all day, and I didn't even know her. She was just one of my very favorites. She had such presence and grace. I did get to see her first Distaff win and saw her a few days later at Keeneland with her dam and little sister, Crown Queen. I went back to look at those photos t...

Re: Curlin Foals

Copperplate (who, if I remember correctly, is owned in part by our very own BlindLucky), has been entered into the Forego S at Turfway on 1/21. That's fantastic, good luck and safe returns! :D Was on the AE list and did not draw in. Yeah, he didn't draw in so the little meatball went out and won an...

Re: Pedigrees- source for

Also, I notice that sometimes when I search for a name with google another horse with the same name from the 70's comes up instead. I thought there was a 50 year rule before one can reuse the same name? Ex. McCracken. Thanks The short answer is that names can be reused within around 7 to 10 years, ...

Re: Doggy heartbreak

Makes me think of another recent story or two. Apparently a lot of cats have gone missing from Santa Anita lately, and a lot of coyotes have been seen and are thought to be the culprits. If you follow Barbara Livingston and her gazillion photos of Duane, Dan Hendricks' adorable little cat who even h...

Re: Pegusus World Cup G1

Two people from my office watched the Pegasus on Saturday. Totally on their own, I had nothing to do with it! I don't live in a racing state, so this was quite a surprise to me. Here in North Carolina, I feel like I'm the only person who even knows what a Thoroughbred is, let alone what time/channel...

Re: Interesting Horses for Adoption

Speak Logistics is up for adoption, but unfortunately as a companion only. He was retired last year, but apparently had a "non-racing injury" that will keep him from a second career as a riding horse. He's a handsome guy, though. Hope he finds a good home! http://www.horseadoption.com/wp-content/ga...
