Absolutely. Great description - he had the look of eagles.
Sorry to hijack the thread.
It's just a matter of opinion, as with anything - some people like apples, others prefer oranges. I thought Barbaro was drop dead gorgeous. I loved his build, color, face...and I personally do not...
I never got the FOB madness, but to me Barbaro was a lot more impressive than Chrome, both in looks and performance on the track.
I'm just so happy they do not like the Pharoah. :D
Jim is a class act and a great ambassador for the sport.
I am heartbroken.
We only saw the surface of what he could do.
RIP, beautiful champion
I just made a shadow box with a few of my late mare's things...it took me seven years, but I finally did it on her anniversary a couple of weeks ago.
I too had a lovely pastel drawing done, which...
And not to early to jingle for me. I love the Christmas season - the longer, the better. Spread good will and cheer! :)
I can wait for the snow, however. We had enough last year!
Thanks for the responses!
In years past, I have done several things, including:
- Planted a cherry tree
- Donated an engraved granite bench to the vet's office
- Had a pastel portrait done of...
I lost my "heart horse" in 2008 at age 32 after 23 years together. The seventh anniversary of her passing is this coming Sunday, and I am feeling rather sad. Each anniversary, I try to do something...
I am a huge Tonalist fan, but also a fan of AP. Pharoah is simply in a class by himself. It is an honor to have watched him run!
The night after my beloved mare, Chutney, died at age 32, she appeared to me in a dream while I was falling asleep. She was with an Arab-looking grey mare with distinctive markings that I'd never...
Pharoah is just an incredible animal.
He looked like he could have won a pleasure class afterward. Just a calm, cool customer.
He exudes class. We're so lucky to be able to watch him.
She's a special filly. Congrats to all who know and love her.
I will say, that when I saw him and Tonalist in the saddling area, I was convinced we would not have a Triple Crown that year.[/QUOTE]
Agreed. Tonalist is drop dead gorgeous and beautifully put...
Unfortunately, the crazies are already trying to discount Pharoah's win with all kinds of bizarre theories (including one who said that NYRA and the other jockeys "let" him win). To me, this shows...
Chrome is a good horse. Pharoah is a great horse.
I'm still on cloud nine. What an incredible performance. The test of the champion and he made it look effortless!!
Best of luck to AP, the Zayats, the Bafferts, and the remainder of the team who have kept this horse in such great shape. I hope he wins it all!
I'm pretty sure the family members of the victims did not find the "joking" about it to be funny.
I know people who live and work in the industry and they think the Zayats are good for the sport. As they say, one man's candy is another man's poison. And does it really matter who does or doesn't...
Very well said, Flash44.
<<The connections do the “talking” for the horse, any horse. This is about far more than the “horse”.>>
Zayat has acted nothing less than professional to the racing media and seems to really love...
I do not get all the Zayat bashing. Unless you are dealing with him personally, why do you care? Actually, I have friends who *do* know him personally and professionally, and they have nothing but...
