Re: The Pennsylvania Derby Saturday

I was wondering...HOW do you get the colon/spleen un-entrapped? It didn't sound like he had surgery, so does the vet manipulate the intestines from outside the body? :shock: :? Pretty much what Katmandu said, lots of jogging and walking, a dose of banamine and hoping everything just settles back in...

Re: Clever Names for horses

Devil - 2017 c. Siyouni X Burma Sea, by Lope de Vega.

Nice looking up and comer owned by the Wertheimers... the name isn't even a play on words, or that clever I guess... but what does one have to do to earn such a moniker?

Re: Racing in Dubai Sale - September 2019

I am curious as to what makes these guys "unsuitable for breeding in the UAE." What breeding is there in the UAE anyway? Also I was under the impression Godolphin had a generally good retraining/rehoming program. I saw an article last year about how some of their runners have gone on to be horses f...

Re: Racing in Dubai Sale - September 2019

I know Godolphin usually uses UAE horses in training sales as one of their outlet to sell younger (ie. 5 and under) horses who aren't making the grade, with plenty going on to have success at Meydan and other local UAE tracks. However, it is really disappointing to see horses 7+ years old and/or not...

Re: Siblings (and offspring) of well-known horses

Mogul (IRE) (Galileo/Shastye), a full brother to Japan, etc., broke his maiden in the first race on the card at the Curragh today. Mogul just won the Juvenile S (G2) at Leopardstown. He looks really talented. I wonder what path Coolmore will take with him. The race was a WAYI for the BC, but there ...

I hope the track will be sealed for them to run! When our... vertically challenged dogs run around in our arena after we ride, a deep hoofprint in the sand can cause quite the pile up! :lol:

Re: Racing in Japan

She ran a great race. I am a big fan of Oisin Murphy, but he held her up for an awfully long time behind a wall of horses, by the time he pulled her out and got rolling, it was too late. Not sure she could have beat Magical in a fight, but she could have been 2nd.

Hopefully Champion Stakes is next?

Re: Across the pond

Yeah, I feel like if you have a 3 year old colt who likes like he could be a nice stayer, you would try for the English Leger instead. Unless you're Aidan O'Brien and you have two really nice staying 3 year old colts and the year is 2018. So you win the Irish with Flag of Honour and the English with...

Re: Coolmore Fundraiser

The showjumping community has rallied for Kevin Babington in an incredible way, with the fundraiser for his medical costs raising almost $700,000. Though he is Irish, Kevin has been based in the US for over 20 years, so to see Coolmore support "one of their own" in such a way is really touching. If ...

The $700K Kitten's Joy colt who sold today went to Shadwell. I think they've bought 2 or 3 by him.
I would love to see more Kittens running abroad.
Especially in Europe. They've proven that they can hold their own anywhere.
