I see that Orfevre had a drop from 136 to 52. Does that indicate some disappointment in his foals? :?
If they are unhappy with him as a sire they could always send him to the US. I’m sure some farm would snap him up in a heartbeat. Not that it would happen, but I can dream can’t I? 🤗

Re: Article in New York Times states Justify failed a drug test before the Derby

This just popped up my WLEX 18 notifications.

Until racing comes clean and stops giving special treatment to certain parties in the business they will never have the public trust.

Having worked in the business I’m not surprised, sadly.

Re: Stallion News

So glad to read he will be returning. And I too hope Hansen isn’t far behind him in coming back. That tweet about how he is a “proper “ stallion and tries to bite everyone is asinine. American Pharoah is a proper stallion and is not a biter. :evil:

Re: Jockey club exploring 140 mare cap per stallion

I would guess the staggered introduction of the rule is meant to appease the Coolmores. They set the cost they are willing to pay for a stallion at the point they think they can get the money back in stud fees within the first three seasons before the stallion has a chance to prove himself a flop o...

Re: Sadler's Well

So that means Royal Delta was sent for dog food? That is disgusting to think of and all those other champions they have. Maybe Mr. Besilu had her cremated and sent home to His place in Florida. I hope so. How is it a negative impact on the environment? They turn into the earth from which they came i...

Re: Stallion News

I would love to see a farm here in the States stand him on NH time. I love this horse and think he was an wonderfully talented performer. Plus he’s just gorgeous.

How beautiful and touching that a nation could love these two talented and gorgeous boys so much that they can honour them like this, and allow the public to share in their memorials.

Re: 2019 Foals

That’s good to hear. I heard of farms here that would hide foals until Jan 1st. Wonder why the US doesn’t adopt something similar?

Re: 2019 Foals

I have a question about Australian foals. If August 1st is the official birthday, like January 1st is here, is that cute little foal born in late July considered a yearling today, as it would be here in the US? Just wondering.

Re: Deep Impact was put down

How sad such a wonderful stallion is gone so young. This life is such a fleeting moment in the grand scheme of things. But that doesn’t ease the hurt of losing such a special animal.

Re: Stallion News

Such distressing news for certain. I wonder if the stress of travel and quarantine is too much, will he just remain in New Zealand permanently.

I know Ribot ended up in the US permanently because of issues flying him home.

Re: Stallion News

With so many new stallions retiring to stud each year, breeders have a huge pool to choose a stallion from. Is it any wonder why those stallions that are not the creme de is creme don’t have huge books mares?

I have a question for those in Japan. I work for a Japanese company and my boss is going for two weeks.
