    The horse(s) in question originally were in Texas, correct? The EU banned shipments of horsemeat from Mexico at the end of last year and as far as I know the ban still remains. From several reports...

    I was wondering if I lacked reading comprehension when I read the synopsis of Dr. Bramlage's talk and did not remember him saying anything about Chrome's returning to the track was a virtual death...

    Well, it will give me an excuse to watch. I've been bored with it for a couple of seasons and avoiding it, but I'll give it a try this time.

    This should give the Chromies something new to talk about since he was Chrome's jockey BP (before Pharoah).

    Does anyone know the exact time for Sunday? I was told it would be around 8 a.m. (9 a.m. EDT). I can't find any more information. Still rooting for Kate and Akela.

    She rode at 2:20, finished with a total score of 63.233 (3rd place). She didn't come back for the victory gallop, however. I think she rides Sunday also. Stuck a bit on the piaffe and the...

    We have someone competing from our area with a horse that she pretty much trained herself up to Grand Prix. It is a thrill watching her practice her pirouettes and piaffe and passage at the bottom...

    What about requiring that the prospective rider bring their own helmet? That should weed out a few non-riders right there.

    Well, I equate the rearing photo with Chrome being a 3-year-old (wacky teenage male equivalent) and I think the fence is farther away than it seems. Nobody seems to mention that this was while he...

    I was just wondering how he'd been doing, and voila, there he is. You bought a black mare from Colorado a couple of years back--what happened with her?

    Great pics.

    Smoofox beat me to it. Somehow in my world the only embarrassment to Chrome has been the rants from the Coburns, BCH, and to a lesser extent, the Shermans. Other than that, I would think that he's...

    Nope. That's much more complicated than the ones I am thinking about. They had a simple handle and a cutting blade--and I think there were smaller ones that were pocket sized also.

    I want one of the really old fashioned can openers--not the kind with the knob that you turn, but one that is just the blade on a handle. Sometimes the hand can opener that I use skips and leaves...

    The Chromies are too self-centered and selfish to ever branch off from their villain, Martin.

    As for ABR, I'll plead guilty to being all too gullible once upon a time. Christy got a lot of...

    I guess that shows where at least part of OP's great disposition comes from.

    Love that photo. It's almost as good as the one with Zayat and Baffert hanging in the stall with Pharoah.
