What the Horse Racing Nation is saying about Conduit...

Conduit ran his final race in the Japan Cup in late November, 2009. About 3 weeks after winning his second Breeders Cup Turf at Santa Anita. I know he stayed in Japan was immediately retired after that race and was sent to whatever farm he's standing stud for in Japan? I'm thinking it shouldn't be too much longer now until we start seeing some Conduit sired juveniles popping up at racetracks in Japan and possibly elsewhere? Can't wait to see some of his offspring on the racetrack. I've always thought Conduit would turn out to be a top class sire. But I guess we'll find out soon enough?

  • racingrooter · I'm with winplaceshow. I think Ghostzapper is the best horse of the 20th century thus far. There are some other great horses mentioned here, but GZ would have left them all eating his dirt. · 815 days ago ·

  • orangeman88 · I strongly believe that Midday hangs in the stretch and can never be trusted to take the top spot. St. Nick seems a cut below the others. I too like Sea Moon and Sarafina. How are people treating ATDs poor Judmontte International? Does he get a redo? Midday made him look second class there. · 904 days ago ·

  • Medlocke · I really felt that Conduit would at least hit the board in the Japan Cup. He did, however, manage a 4th place finish in a race with quite a large field. But losing to Vodka in Japan is no disgrace. That would be kind of like Conduit losing to Goldikova or Dar Re Mi in his own country. Vodka is truly a champion mare who has beaten the boy's more than once in her career. · 1603 days ago ·

It's all over but the debating. Zenyatta's victory in the Breeders' Cup Classic on Saturday at Santa Anita's Oak Tree meeting has reignited the debate over the 2009 Horse of the Year between her and Rachel Alexandra, who had an equally brilliant year. Read More
  • Rossington · I take nothing away from Rachael Alexandra. She's a remarkable filly that's accomplished remarkable thing's that your average filly just doesn't get done against the boy's. But that said, this is how I break down the debate, and this is just my personal opinion, I speak for no one else but myself. While Rachael has looked amazing against males, Jesse Jackson is careful to pick races where only about 2 or 3 real tough contenders are in any one race she run's against males. Zenyatta dove right into the deep end of the pool. First time ever against males, first time ever at 1-1/4, defending her undefeated record, and against one of the most loaded with talent male field's assembled all year. She faced, she raced, and she won overcoming all of these obstacle's. I kind of feel like Rachael took the easy path at Saratoga this summer when she was working extremely well and had a choice to run against Summer Bird, Quality Road, Hold Me Back, and Kensei in the Travers and took the easier race in the Woodward facing very little other than Macho Again who is 20-6-6-0 lifetime, and Bullsbay. Or even moreover from a different point of view, if the Breeders Cup Classic would have been run back east on conventional dirt at Churchill Downs, Belmont, Monmouth, or Saratoga, take your pick, and you ask Jesse Jackson to race his filly against 8 Grade 1 winning, and most multiple Grade 1 winning males, plus Zenyatta would he have put her in the race doubtful. Even on dirt this field had more competition than Jackson is comfortable with in racing Rachael against males, imo. I think it would take her racing another 5 or 6 races to compete against every male that was in this race. Every one had R.A. already penciled in as HOY before the Classic because most of the people who cover horse racing gave Zenyatta little to no chance of winning the Classic. After the way she overcame the delay at the gate, broke on the wrong lead, and was last for a good bit of the race, then to explode in the stretch to go by Gio Ponti, which is not an easy task, not only did she win, she won impressively. IMO, if Zenyatta is denied HOY after her performance on Saturday, and Rachael as well was welcome to be in that starting gate, it will be absolutely CRIMINAL and will FOREVER be a DARK STAIN an the members of the thoroughbred racing industry who make the HOY decision. Remember, this is JMO. No one elses. · 1621 days ago ·

Conduit didn't even run his best race, he's just straight-up good.
midracing69, You're absolutely correct in your remark's about the Breeders Cup Turf. Presious Passion brought his "A" game to the race but was just run down by a better horse. You hit the nail right on the head. Last I heard, Conduit is going to be on his way to Japan to stand stud and Mastercraftsman has been retired as well.
I didn't bet this race because as you can see from my earlier post that I felt Conduit would repeat in the B.C. Turf and he was just to short of a price. But I must take my hat off to Presious Passion in this race as well. I really felt that at a 1-1/2 he would run himself right out of the race with his running style. He really surprised me when he started coming back to the field and Dar Re Mi, Spanish Moon, and Conduit were all coming at him. The way he dug back in and fought Conduit to the wire to hang on for 2nd. Very surprising to me as I thought the distance may get the better of him given his running style.
Despite losing the Breeders' Cup Juvenile by a head, Lookin at Lucky has emerged as the top 2-year-old in North America and will be widely considered the winter favorite for the Kentucky Derby."The consolation was, man, I have a serious horse," trainer Bob Baffert said the morning after a wide trip ...Read More
