Some further comments from Buff Bradley about Groupie Doll and her sale: "They don't know the whole story," Bradley said of the critics. "They don't know what I have to go through at the farm and with my family. I have to take care of them first. Groupie Doll is going to be taking care of the rest ...

Re: Eblouissante

Better a broodmare than to be a "racehorse" that can only race twice a year. She's definitely going to Japan . She's too good of a broodmare prospect to stay in this country. When and if she does, the Zetards will lose their ever-loving minds... Can't wait to hear the responses. *sarcasm* It will s...

Re: A Question About Group I's in Europe

I know they can't race in the classics or the Arc, but I don't think that a lot of the restrictions would apply to Dan

Re: Beldame Inv. (G1)

I can't wait for the Princess to see Delta's tail. A long, LONG distance away. I am hopeful. If Royal Delta wins, she will go in the Distaff, where she belongs, in my opinion. The Classic's always been more of an afterthought for her. even if she doesn't win i think the distaff is where she will go

Re: 2013 Breeders Cup Classic

I can't see Delta going up against the frontrunners expected for the classic and coming out on top, I honestly think there is going to be such a duel with horses that need the lead that it may be a good year to be a closer.

Re: so many ways sold

Teruya Yoshida has kept mares he bought in training racing in the past (at least until the year ends), but I guess perhaps Katsumi rather get her into quarantine and on her way to Japan instead of finishing the year?

Re: War Emblem?

Disappointing. Maybe he can be pensioned and moved to Northern Horse Park so fans can see him? I can't really blame them for continuing to try, Mr. Yoshida has funds to spare when it comes to finding out if there is anything wrong with the horse... and when it comes to attempting to have him cover m...
