  • Kevin777 via Disqus · When the winning time was put up anyone who paid attention must've of known after the moderate first two fractions the last 3/4 mile must've been Lighting fast. If American Pharoah has that much left in his tank down the stretch at the BCC look out. · 19 hours ago
  • steve via Disqus · 24+change and 48+ change is not overly fast by any stretch of the imagination, at his best AP puts frosted away coming into the final turn no problem regardless of pressure, it was clear to see he was empty by that stage, guts and determination saw off frosted yet he still only lost by 3/4 of a length running below his best, at his best I think he wins comfortably · 17 hours ago

What happened with Kentuckian? I thought he was supposed to run in the King's Bishop this past Saturday. Anyone know what happened and where he's pointed to next? Been almost two months.

Thank goodness Grand Strand was recently rescued from New Holland Slaughterhouse by Mindy Lovell, having to outbid kill buyers. It's disgusting these beautiful animals are sent to slaughter when they could make someone a great riding horse or hunter/jumper! Shame on you owners who do this!
Well-bred California stallion Sought After, best known as the sire of grade I winner Masochistic, was euthanized recently at Joe Daehling's Daehling Ranch after developing laminitis in both front feet. He was 15. The son of Seeking the Gold covered about a dozen mares in 2015 at the farm near Elk Grove, Calif., Daehling said. Unraced, Sought After was bred in Kentucky by B. Wayne Hughes. His dam is multiple French group winner Smolensk, a daughter of Danzig who was grade I-placed in England. He was a half brother to grade III winner Can the Man (Into Mischief ) and listed stakes winnerMartha's Moon (Malibu Moon ), and was a grandson of 1982 Kentucky Oaks (gr. I) winner Blush With Pride. This is the family of Broodmare of the Year Better Than Honour, champion and classic winner Rags to Riches, and classic winner Jazil. Article on Bloodhorse
