    Well, her dam had injuries as a foal that resulted in her being pasture-sound only, but I think her gaits are pretty impressive even so.

    And, having bred this mare to 3 different stallions, I can...

    Remind me again what Da'Tara's winning time was? Perhaps abit too much hyperboyle on my part, so perhaps I should have said "leading wire to wire in a 1 1/2 mile race is almost never seen."

    Well, I was working at Belmont at the time for a trainer (Frank Whitely) who had his horses stabled in the barn right next to Secretariat's.

    ^^^^This.

    One of the reasons I've never used Rotspon (despite loving the R line) is that he is so inconsistent.

    I know from looking at the info from Germany he has thrown some very nice horses,...

    Would you believe there were alot of folks on the backside (and even in the media) who thought Secretariat was over hyped just before the Belmont.

    You have to remember that Sham had run a close...

    No, you don't have to monitor these pups that way. In this particular case Pink is so small the danger would be the pups crushing HER (not really, but if you check out the pics you can see how big...

    Lord Helpus must be a TB breeder; BITS is correct in that May & June are the months with the highest conception rates. That is when horses in "Nature" would be breeding & conceiving.

    I don't think he has ANY babies on the ground. Isn't he just 3 this year? A friend of mine bred a mare to him, but hasn't preg checked yet, so not sure of the success.

    HERDA was discovered to trace back to Poco Bueno's dam. At first they thought it was Poco himself, then (IIRC) a vet in Louisana did a more detailed pedigree analysis and ascertained it went back to...

    I think he was one of the best stallions standing in the US, and arguably one of the best Sandro Hit sons. And he has a very strong damline -- I love Contender!

    Forego was very close to 17hh. He may not have been that tall at age 3, when he ran 4th in the Derby, but that was his mature height.
