    She did look not right down the backstretch...wonder if she bowed a tendon or something. Poor girl. She honestly just isn't showing me she wants to be a racehorse, or can hold up to the rigors of...

    I wondered about that remark too! Wonder what in the world happened that made Mr. Coburn feel so upset that he said something on national tv about it. SOOOOO happy for the connections and I LOVED...

    I love California Chrome, but am so afraid to love him too much, because there are just so many odds stacked against him to win today (Cal bred, favorite, relative front runner who could easily get...

    I think I saw somewhere that he was between 15hh and 15.1hh. Not "tiny", but definitely small by comparison to the average 16.1+hh of the rest of the field. He looks like a cutie...and I love...

    Trying to track down TB Mare "Snow"

    She is a full sister to my very first OTTB (whom I devastatingly lost just 8 months after purchasing her at age 3, to a massive sand colic episode), and I would dearly love to see what she looks like...
  6. Yep...I would NEVER ever go near that woman again

    I had what seemed to be a good experience up until a few months after the transaction, when things went way sour. She definitely seems to be bi-polar, and seems to go from nice, caring, social, to...

    If she still belongs to Jerry and Ann Moss, I doubt she will suffer the fate of auction or worse...plus I believe that equineracers is helping to find her a home, so they will make sure she gets a...

    I like Phillip's...I think it's the least "look at me" of the bunch, and when he's sitting in it, you don't really notice the blue, just the yellow piping, which I rather like.
    Gotta admit, while I...

    Another vote for Contester II. I absolutely adore his temperament, and feel that it's definitely amateur friendly, and seems to pass that onto his offspring. He has stellar conformation, is just...

    You might enjoy checking out WinStar Farm, they do farm tours, and they have Summer Bird, Speightstown, Distorted Humor, Bluegrass Cat, SuperSaver and others standing there, and stallion tours are...

    Yes, please take pictures, especially for those of us on the left coast who will have to just live vicariously through you getting to see him in person! :)

    ArchArchArch Retired

    Sad news...but definitely very thankful he will be ok in the long run. Hope that he gets some well deserved R & R before moving on to the (likely) stallion barn.

    Well, and it sounds like, despite Irwin not being maybe the most "user friendly" owner of a syndicate...he does care about the horses that Team Valor owns. He is being quoted as not even being...
  19. GREAT commentary from the group who owns MuchoMachoMan

    Another racing syndicate, but it sounds like another one who cares about/loves the horses they are associated with...and rather than being disappointed with the outcome of the Derby and that their...

    I have to agree with MKW...while I've been a racing follower for a lot of years, I think it's extremely refreshing to hear an owner call a spade a spade. I think we definitely need to clean up...

    When I get to that point in my riding career, I've always thought about using ELO's "Fire On High" (without the crazy weirdo intro...LOL), or, for a more fun one, a song called "Starry Eyed Surprise"...
