On a totally random note, I just wanted to say how much I hate the way you Americans pronounce the word "Warrior", it really bugs me!!! It's WARRIOR, not WAR-YERRRR! lol

  • MaryZinke via Disqus · I pronounce words correctly, buy hey, you're not saying the German word for warrior or anything else, so right? Guess what my suggestion is for you. You mean that you love us, U.S. · 1 day ago
I love Songbird, I really do, she really is TOP CLASS, but I'm getting sick of seeing her trott around racetracks in 2nd gear, beating sub-standard opposition at odds of 1-9. It's time for her to step up now and challenge the other top class fillies such as Cathryn Sophia, Carina Mia and Go Maggie Go. Lets find out how good she REALLY is.

  • Ruffianlover · Weren't you just saying on Carina Mia's page how songbird will easily beat them? You look foolish · 2 days ago
  • nu-fan via Disqus · Better yet, let's see how good Cathryn Sophia, Carina Mia, and Go Maggie Go are. Let's see how good they REALLY are. Sorry to hear about your health and that you become ill watching the best filly out there. Hope you feel better soon. · 1 hour ago
I heard that they have thought of keeping him at Santa Anita & the Del Mar circuit.
Whoa. They are considering her for the Pegasus, too? At 7? Wow.
It looks like Frosted and Upstart are going at each other again in the Whitney. Maybe Far From Over will surprise everyone and beat both of them to remain undefeated!
Harzand wins the Epsom Derby-Irish Derby double~ he's such a fabulous colt! ♥♥
A nice "paid workout" for Mo Tom in the Ohio Derby. Hahaha, EASY MONEY. :-)

Sea The Stars can now boast of having sired a dual Derby winner now that the brilliant Harzand has conquered both the Epsom Derby and the Irish Derby. As Idaho pulled alongside Harzand close to the finish, Harzand eyeballed him and in yet another display of his wonderful determination and grit began to pull away to fend off Idaho and win by 1/2 length! He did his sire proud once again. :)
