worked 5 panels in 1:02 flat on the main track at Oaklawn (4/25)
I LOVE HER!!! I picked her in Black Eyed Susan for win and cashed in big. I hope she goes on to be a Zenyatta (crazy isn't it?)
  • JerseyGirl via Disqus · Never to be. She's not won since Black Eyed Susan last year. A beautiful mare she is too💔 · 7 hours ago
Does anyone know how Golden Soul is doing? I always worry about him just 'disappearing'. Was hoping they would take him on grass or would they just eventually retire him to stud.

  • JerseyGirl via Disqus · Yes, I agree. Instead, they sent him to Dubai. Poor horse. He's really done nothing much on the board since the second in KD, 2013💔 · 7 hours ago
Sent to Dubai for a spring campaign under trainer Mike de Kock? Interesting.
Poor gelding hasn't won a race in almost 3 yrs. He deserves a retirement or second career before something happens on track. His heart isn't in it; please don't break the rest💔
Time for this mare to make babies🐎💚‼️
Nothing new?
Another old timer. Poor guy, time for retirement!
Has he been retired?
Any recent news? Retired?
I think it's a real longshot it will actually happen, but I would absolutely love to see this filly go to Meydan in March to line up against Solow & Maurice in the G1 Dubai Turf over the 1800 meters. If she did, that would make arguably the 3 best turf milers in the sport right now all in the same starting gate together. How awesome would that be!
According to the possible entries for the 2015 Fountain of Youth, there will be some eye popping BSF numbers for this 3 year old crop after this race. However, based on recent histories, it is better to avoid being the owner of the best or second best BSF heading into the Kentucky Derby.
She's an A++ nick with War Front. Would love to see her go to him next for a 2018 foal.
Right now Mohaymen is Mubtaahij 2.0 (good dirt horse when running in dirt races with European turf routing pace). This won't change until Mohaymen wins a route race while stalking a legitimate (46 or 47 and change first half mile) early pace.
  • Ross via Disqus · Is there anyone else in this group that has done that? Well then they are all a bunch of Mubtaahij's and he's 2.0. · 10 hours ago
An update on Tepin's dam Life Happened, in 2015 she gave birth to a full brother to Vyjack, but unfortunately passed away, she currently has a two year old colt by Harlan's Holiday, and in 2016, she will be bred to War Front for a 2017 foal.
Looked very green but a confident winner in his first start. Not sure if 6f is right for him -- he was having trouble keeping up through the first quarter in 21 and change.
A start like that in the Derby could finish his race practically before it starts.
Looks as though Van Berg has this one figured out...
