    Where were Darren and Kristin?

    It's great they retired Windfall at Rolex, but where were Darren Chiacchia (his rider) and Kristin Stoop (his longtime groom)? Their prescence would have added immeasurably to a wonderful ceremony.

    We're so lucky....

    that the Racing Gods loaned us The Chief for so many years.

    I used to play polo with his sons Jimmy and Steve at West Hills Polo Club, and watched Allen play at Meadowbrook. He was a character!...

    Hi All,
    Thanks to everyone for the kind thoughts. I truly appreciate it. I see your names and think "Oh! She and I arranged to retire that horse together," "They did a remarkable job with that tough...

    Hi All,
    This is a quick note to say goodbye to you all. I just can't take the rudeness and snarkiness that this racing forum has turned into any more. The 'Coburn' thread ended any further...

    I'm really disappointed that the Racing Forum is seen as unhelpful. For a long time we were considered the most helpful bunch of all the forums.

    I think one of the problems is that newbies...

    Hi,
    It was thirteen years after racing that GR had her first living foal, Genuine Reward. The next living foal was Count Our Blessing, show name Westley. The Secretariat foal was stillborn....was...

    Hi All,
    The reason that the Triple Crown is run for three year-olds is (drumroll please).... tradition.

    The reason we've lost all sanity in breeding long distance runners is everyone wants early...

    Display was a grand racehorse but a bad actor. He fought every starter he ever met, and stormed from racetrack to racetrack. He was DANGEROUS but a wonderful racer.

    Well.....

    The people at the airport were well aware of who he (AN) was, and well as the other people he was with, were. It was the talk of the airport. A number of airport workers attended Rolex.

    Sorry to hijack thread about Midnight Cowboy

    Hi All,
    Getting back to the matter originally brought up, AN continued his poor behavior after the event. A friend of mine works at the airport (that's all I'll say so as not to get her in trouble)...

    Agreed

    Hi All,
    The announcers kept saying what a great rider Springer is and I have to disagree. She is overly busy with her back, legs, and hands. I'm sure she's a very nice person but her riding left a...

    I bred one of my wonderful mares to Fastness some years ago and got a spectacular filly. She earned over $150,000- on the track before an injury retired her. This filly/mare got better as she got...

    Nice Article

    Alfonsina,
    Thanks for posting the link to the article about R. Baze. I thought it was a really nice piece with a couple of little errors. I was sort of surprised the author didn't mention Lost in...
  18. Hmmmm

    I mentioned unrecognized shows because they are the stepping stone to recognized shows. And somebody else brought up horse shows first.

    You'd be amazed how cheating occurs at unrecognized...
  19. Unrecognized Shows

    This is a great idea, danceronice, but there's one problem: a lot of the shows in this country are unrecognized, i.e. they have no governing organization. As a past competitor and judge, I've seen...

    Hi All,
    The Harness Racing Museum and the Hall of Fame of the Trotter has always been a magical place for me. To think of these trophies being stolen almost makes me physically ill.

    How about....

    'Still Running Water'

    It incorporates the dam and sire and is a pretty name. That's my shot at it!

    Display

    Display had a fiery temperment - he raged and fought on every track he raced upon. I have a long quote about him from a writer in his day. Will find it and post it.
