Street Cry, one of the world’s most successful stallions and a cornerstone of Sheikh Mohammed’s racing and breeding operations for the past 14 years, has been put to sleep at the age of 16 after succumbing to complications relating to a neurological condition.Read More

  • Petra via Disqus · RIP. :-( What neurological condition exactly? And why does this seem to be so common among TB stallions relative to the general horse population? · 3 hours ago
  • ILuvTurfRacing · Fantastic racehorse on the track, fantastic sire in the breeding shed! RIP Street Cry. · 17 minutes ago
While Winstar acquired Fast Bullet as a stallion, they also purchased half interest in Jojo Warrior. Good purchase
Her owner gave her to someone which I believe is who I am purchasing her from. She is currently at a trainers learning all her basics. She really is a lovely girl. I do not know the name of the current owner yet but she was not a rescue. They do not have her papers but I will need something if I am going to show her later on. Thanks Mary
  • Mary Z. · Susan, Is this your mare? If so, the lady at this fb page may have info. https://www.facebook.com/jillwaltonhorses/photos/a.369093139824195.80656.122477694485742/421611064572402/?type=1&theater · 32 minutes ago

  • Goblin · I know what you mean, jimmy; but if they said too much, they'd be accused of "hyping" her. I rather like the connections' low profile approach. (Or maybe I'm becoming accustomed to it at this point.) · 1 hour ago
quote: That CDI would be interested in selling Fair Grounds is not surprising. The company came under heavy fire earlier this year from various Louisiana entities – including the state legislature, which threatened to withhold its license to operate Fair Grounds – for failing to reinvest profits from slot machines and video poker games back into horseracing. Moreover, CDI’s long-term strategy appears to be focused more around casino gambling and its signature racing product, the Kentucky Derby, than operating a string of racetracks.
Fair Grounds UP for sale. http://www.drf.com/news/churchill-attempting-sell-fair-grounds
In the old days of the tickertape on Wall Street the prices lagged far behind the actual "at the moment" selling prices due to simple mechanics not keeping up with the real sales. SAME situation nowadays with simulcasting. Each "member" track that supports the simulcast network has an encoder that pulses information, in code, to one of 5 HUBS across North America and then that info is directed toward the member tracks, DECODED at the local level and ONLY then goes out to the general pool at the receiving tote. This takes time and always lags behind the actual betting. It is not some clandestine conspiracy, just the speed of technology of widespread co-ordinated betting information.
  • https://www.facebook.com/john. · Thats what I always assumed it was Vic, just a delay in the calculations. It just gets frustrating atleast to me because sometimes 5-1 as opposed to 3-1 or 2-1 as opposed to 6-5 could be the difference between me betting that horse or not and when that calculation of odds happens seconds before they break or during the race it is aggravating. If your comment was in response to my post, I wasn't suggesting any conspiracy or the like. · 1 hour ago

  • Roses4U · That is my point Tom, the influx, or stimulus if you will, has generated more interest in the younger generation that is now getting over the Texas Hold 'em craze and having their fun time at the track instead. In an ironic twist, fewer people are going to the dungeon that is the casino and realizing their hundred bucks can last a whole day instead of half an hour at a slot machine. · 6 days ago

  • Goblin · You're from that area, aren't you, amino? Isn't Katella, the street, named for the Katella Ranch, a landmark in/near Anaheim? I think there's historical significance for naming a race either Katella or Century. · 3 hours ago
  • travel_vic · Address of old Hollywood Park was 1050 S. Prairie Ave. Inglewood, CA 90301. Prairie ran a long way down the road into several other cities and many at the track used to hang out at a watering hole on that very street. Century ran down on side of it, still a dumb moniker for a stakes race. · 2 hours ago
Anyone heard anything ?
Are you sure I think I'm buying this mare up here in Ohio? Just trying to find a bit of history.
  • Mary Z. · I read your post the other day, Susan. She has no registered foals but was last race a while ago, so I thought that the brief bit of stalking I did may have had an unhappy ending. I suggest that you could try contacting her breeder. Info available at equibase.com and equineline.com, then google from there. Good luck. you could also try Thoroughbred rescue/re-homing in the state where she last raced. You did not say how you happened to acquire this mare. · 3 hours ago
Does anyone know where this mare is today?

  • travel_vic · bloodlines are completely theoretical malarkey ONCE the INDIVIDUAL show what it can or cannot do. · 4 hours ago
  • tmallios via Disqus · Vic i have to agree with you. After a horse has run as many times as CC has. The Pedigree portion of his profile does not mean as much as it used to on the track. The only place it would of made a difference was in the breeding side of the game. Apparently the breeders did not see the advantages of a supposed not strong Pedigree and offer these guys the world for this horse. Thus he is still racing with a huge insurance price tag on his forehead. If this guy had the Blue Blood lines and accomplished what he did to date. I would almost guarantee you ,that instead of getting ready for the Pa. Derby. CC would of been getting ready for his first date. · 4 hours ago

  • travel_vic · Good Luck. I know professional players who NEVER touch this place as it is un-predictable. So let's guess. First guess of contenders before scratches are: 1 Heartofthetemple 10 Summer Cocktail 5 Wild Covey 6 Sweet Savoir Faire longshot consideration would be 3 Walking the Kitten 1 goes out and then 10 5 4 come late, best guess that is! · 4 hours ago
He's back! 3f is :36.80, first breeze since getting some rest at the farm because he ran a poor 5th in the Sanford after hitting his head in the paddock and freaking out. He should be more mature and I'm excited to see what he can do. His daddy was a sprinter to 8.5 f horse and he's similarly bred to Fifty, in that his sire's sire was Unbridled's Song and his 3rd dam is Alysbelle. Alysbelle is also in the pedigree of W V Jetsetter, who, like Silverhill, appears to want distance and maturity.
