Stradivari is scheduled for surgery tomorrow.
Make sure you get a written contract.
Oh stop it already! You just pole-vaulted right over the damn line!
No one here has ever had a beloved, precious horse/cat/dog/SPOUSE/PARENT/CHILD "taken from them"? Your former horse isn't...
Finished 9th of 12. I haven't seen the chart or replay, so I have no idea how accurately the placing reflects on his actual performance.
What a whiner. He's been in this game long enough to know that there are no guarantees in racing.
I lost respect for him way back when he was found to have attempted to bribe another trainer to...
Of course I had to go look and see who else is available! Drooling over Shock and Awesome!
It looks like too much fun and the price is right! Thanks - I just bought it too!
The po-pos aren't going to get involved since it's strictly a civil matter.
Gotta say that I love the dam's name: "Aneighzing Grace"!!
"Absolutely disgusting" doesn't even begin to describe this woman and her father. She's partying her Spanx off at the Breeders' Cup while her horses starve in filthy conditions....
Agree. She's a fabulous mare and I think we're going to see some big things from her in the future.
Not that I am shedding any tears over it, but did the Saudis not qualify to field a team in Rio?
OP, everyone on here has told you to get rads on this horse like, YESTERDAY! X-rays should have been done at least 6 months ago, if not before then.
When you say the girl "doesn't do much flatwork", does she just not ride much at all? Or is she possibly over jumping the horse? The latter would bother me.
Everyone remembers Spectacular Bid and Flying Paster, but Great Redeemer?
The story DOES have a very happy ending, though!
I wonder if Lani will be allowed to skip the walking ring for the Derby? Is there a precedent?
I'm ambivalent where Reed Kessler is concerned, but could this not pose a potential conflict of interest? I'm thinking of the similarities in the UL eventing team selections with the O'Connors when...
Apparently you were something of a prankster? Lol. Do you remember the details?
And that hair....omg, that hairstyle. There are no words.
Wait, there ARE words! "WTF" is the only acceptable version on COTH.
Let us know when he gets a name - I would love to follow him!
Does Linda's living, breathing binder play well with others? Because I have one of Mitt's binders full of women. I don't need them fighting on the shelf and knocking everything over.
supershorty's Wondermare Nikki! (Seize The Moment).
PM her - I know Emily had some youtube vids up at one time; she might be more than happy to share.
Given that the owner/trainer took the time to pose her and put the resulting photo on her Pedigreequery profile, it seems they are at least somewhat fond of her.
I read Colin Turner's book In Search of Shergar years ago. Turner is/was a radio personality in Ireland. He got himself involved in the hunt, and supposedly even had semi-regular contact with one...
It's been tried (bringing a stallion back to the races after a season at stud), but I can't think of any success stories off the top of my head.
