    I'm curious...how do you think that that PETA video improved the quality of life for any horses? That wasn't its intent and, as far as I'm aware, it hasn't been its result.

    As for circled wagons,...

    A well funded smear campaign always does damage to its target, because people are more titillated by sensational headlines than by a less interesting truth.

    Case in point, this thread.

    Breakdown numbers have been tracked for a long time. But this occurance has nothing to do with record keeping or social media. It's an unanticipated and highly unusual spike in breakdowns at one...

    Unfortunately, no. I wish I did. A whole lot of people wish they knew what is going on. Then they could work on fixing it.

    PETA made an accusation. They supplied a heavily doctored video to support that accusation. When asked to supply actual proof of wrongdoing--ie, the video of abuse in Asmussen's barn--they couldn't...

    I wish answers were that easy to come by. Of course different TB lines are more likely to produce certain traits. TBs have been selectively bred for years under that exact premise. But the problems...

    There was a long article about this in TDN a few days ago. Everybody's worried and they all want to address the problem. Except they don't know what it is.

    I don't see the same lack of sunshine that you do. Due to this video, Asmussen's barn has been under a white hot spotlight all year--and he has continued to run horses and win races at the same high...

    Yes, Blasi has a foul mouth.

    The dispute about whether or not Zayat's horse should have been running was an issue between owner and trainer. The allegation of bad treatment of that horse was...

    Actually you would be wrong in pretty much all of those assumptions. The purses at AQ are among the highest in the country--and that attracts good owners and good horses. Which is one of the reasons...
