Didn't the US government help pay for it?
Why does the "National Cathedral" belong to the Anglicans?
Interestingly, Peintre Celebre was retired from stud duties the day after the Melbourne Cup. Esp interesting as he was only 20 years old and no reason (i.e fertility, or physical ailment) was given...
Here is a video replay of Protectionist winning the Melbourne Cup.
That is some serious turn of foot that horse has, to come flying like that at the...
Rio Grande Valley + San Antonio/Bexar Co + Austin/Travis Co
From looking at that I surmise that.....
Red = open space
Blue = centers of business, industry, culture, arts etc.
If she were running around the wilds of Nevada or Utah with a band of mustangs would she be too young to go in foal?
It's the most natural thing in the world.
They are fairly common in Europe. I believe Monty Roberts was the first to popularise them. In fact they are often referred to as "Monty Roberts Rugs" in some quarters.
Hope you got to see it. It was a good race. German bred, owned and trained Prefectionist won it.
Red Cadeaux was 2nd, for the third time.
Not sure where Fawkner finished, but he was prominent...
The Germans have just won the Melbourne Cup. Protectionist a son on Monsun wins for trainer Andreas Wohler.
For a country that only produces 800-900 TB foals a year, they produce some stout...
Race leaves a bad taste. He basically took out the favourite (Shared Belief) and the other pace in the race that would have pressed him on the front end (Moreno). After that it was a perfect set up...
But only one Juvy winner has won the Derby,
Also rans do fairly well. Same with the Juvy Turf.
Well, they both made a fool out of me.
But I can't believe they let Bayern have it all his own way up front. We have seen in the past that he is practically unbeatable id he is allowed to dictate...
I try to ignore 2yo form, been let down too many times. But Texas Red's running style and pedigree.... hard not to get a little excited about next year.
The speed bias appears to have gone, either the track has dried or they've harrowed the hell out of it. So Bayern is a toss for me.
Toast of New York is an interesting horse. If he can transfer...
It's a speed super highway at SA so far. If this bias continues Bayern might be worth a heavy punt in the Classic.

There were 338,223 starts in the US in 2013. That would amount to 680 odd fatalities in 2013. A number 330 so far (mid Oct) in 2014...
That's not your horse's complete race record. He had several wins and in the money placings as a 5yo in 2011, finishing in the money in 5 of his 12 starts that year. He obviously went off the boil a...
Admire Rakti seems none the worse for wear from that incident. He just won the Caulfield Cup G1..... replay, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HvzAMyXQQj0
Fallon is an Irishman, though based in England.
He spent the winter in Florida about 10 or so years ago, and there was talk at the time that he might stick around, but then he was offered the job...
This is turning into a horrible couple of days for jockeys in racing.
In Australia two jockeys (both young women) have died in race related accidents.
19 year old jockey Catilin Forrest has just...
This is awful news. Doesn't sound good, but really hoping he makes it.
