Gallant Bob S(G3)

City of Weston (Holy Bull - How About Dattt, by Souvenir Copy) won at 30-1 after looking like he wouldn't find a hole. Came charging up a tight rail to get the win. Interestingly, he is a descendant of Square Angel, his pedigree.

2nd - Clearly Now
3rd - Black Hornet
4th - Zeewat

Re: Hollywood Park Racetrack On Grand Theft Auto 5

Here is another question about the game, before they put the Hollywood Park Racetrack by using the name Vinewood Racetrack for the Grand Theft Auto 5 video game, and release it to the public, did the creators of the game received permission from the Hollywood Park Racetrack management staff? Who gi...

The lighting/glare aren't good but I think Kitten's Joy looks better in the new picture.

the race was pretty much the same from start to finish. The pace setter and longest shot on the board was left to her own devices and was able to go wire to wire.

Re: Stallion News

Agreed. One of the things I like about farms like Three Chimneys that if the stallion is sound, they get exercised. Only if the stallion enjoys it. Point Given didn't so he was never ridden. I'm sure there are others as well. True- apparently, they tried to ride Tiznow, and he kept lowering himself...

Brethren

I know there was a topic on the old board about him.

I just wanted to share a link. A local horse rescue is auctioning a shoe worn by Brethren in his Sam F. Davis S(G3) win. It comes with a COA. The reserve price is $100.

Maybe they tried to save her but couldn't? Because its only a couple days from her injury until 2013.
