    You may be right, although I immediately thought of Washington Bridge, who had some flash. I would think that he certainly didn't hurt this filly's chances for color, being a Storm Cat.

    Good information here but I am adding that I prefer to use Equineline's free search.

    Plenty of people (like me) get on with our day because there is nothing we can do. Straining our eyes trying to figure out what happened when what happened can be so variable in outcome,...

    I disagree with the assessment of Lexington's weather overall (other than a few years ago in April when it was an absurd monsoon all month, and the beginning of this year's April meet, both meets are...

    Findeight is correct.

    As an aside, while not common, it is not *uncommon* for a mare to race while in foal. A number of high-profile mares have done so over the years, although none spring to...

    I've seen obscure pedigrees, and that isn't remotely one of them, trust me. :) I wish you the best with him.

    She has no value as a racing broodmare. Which is not to say that she deserves to be in a kill pen (she does not), but it is not surprising she could end up in a bad spot.

    The synthetic vs. dirt debate is an interesting one. There is no question that one needs to train differently on synthetic than on dirt, and certainly when making the transition from dirt to...

    I'm very sorry you had to see that. I can certainly understand your reaction to it; though I have been in the racing business for years, I still remember watching a horse break down in front of me...

    They can really roll. Hard to outdo them on a trail ride. A cool breed.

    And a special one, indeed. Perhaps the first Standardbred in recent years to make this Thoroughbred person sit up and take notice, when she was just two.

    Mission Brief is absolutely lovely.

    One needn't be dependent on their trainer to be wise enough to know that the trainer ought to be the one devising the plan, inasmuch as a plan can be devised. If you think you need to map it out for...

    Quoted in agreement.

    I found someone's cat ten years ago. Starving, but still lion-hearted. I am fortunate he was not as ill as Jem, and he is slumped purring in my lap as I type.

    Bless you...

    I don't know that I would consider that a good thing, or something that flatters the owner.

    Which is not to say that I think Martin deserves the bashing he is getting from the BCH folks.

    That is done via dismount sample, as a general rule. Unless they are also used for AI, I am unaware of TBs who jump a dummy to check semen quality (or for any other reason).

    I watched the same video everyone else did, but I never once interpreted it that way. I understood that he was saying workers know where to go to get cards/numbers, which is absolutely the case. ...

    I hope he has mellowed. I would not call their staff experienced, personally. Just lucky to date.

    I think if you can be there and be strong for him, you will be glad you did. If you are going to be a mess, then it is fine to recuse yourself, for his best interest (not upsetting him).

    Noodle was a lucky chicken to have someone care for her so. I am sorry for your loss.

    I think he's worth (fee-wise) $30k-50k now; $50k-75k if he wins the Triple Crown. He could conceivably be listed at $100k, but that doesn't mean that's what they get. I think he's $100k (maybe...

    I was in the barn across from her at Churchill. She was little, but she wasn't girly! :) I'm not sure I've seen a filly so robust since. She was a Sherman tank with ovaries, that one. :D:D
