Calidoscopio – It’s been hard to miss the Argentina import Calidoscopio since his arrival in California nearly two months ago to prepare for the Marathon as he is the only horse to be galloped bareback every morning and he wears a white “bonnet.” The bonnet not only helps make the horse easy to spot...Read More
Atigun – Shortleaf Stable’s Atigun, the 9-2 morning line favorite for Friday’s $500,000 Breeders’ Cup Marathon, galloped a little more than 1 1/2m Wednesday morning under exercise rider Danny Ramsey. Read More

William S. Farish Jr.’s Pool Play, trained by Mark Casse, was dismissed as the second longest shot on the board in Saturday’s Grade 2 Hawthorne Gold Cup, despite being the only Grade 1 winner in the field. That didn’t deter him, or rider Miguel Mena from going from last to first to grind out a half-...Read More

  • Floridaf · Exactly. If we bred for stamina and durability, we'd see less retirements in the 3-YO season, and fans could actually look forward to years of seeing their favorites rather than just a year and a half. · 575 days ago ·
  • AnnaK · Huge Yes. Such a list of what if's. Imagine many of them coming back next year. We'd get pictures to moon over of so'n so sleeping under a tree, get to visit another, feed him a carrot. And we'd pay for this honour. Such an exploitatable source we mushbowl fans are. · 575 days ago ·

Disclaimer: I have no connection to Redeemed, and what I say may well mean less than a hill of beans to owner Samantha Siegel and trainer Rick Dutrow. I understand this and I’m fine with it; Redeemed is their horse and obviously they can do with him whatever they please. What I am is a fan, and as o...Read More

  • AnnaK · Maybe an interesting solution would be to up the purse of the BC marathon from a puny 500 to 2 mil. Imagine that. Then we get to see the panther himself plus anyone else who dares take him on really have to negotiate/pace themselves 3 turns. Older stronger horses, mentally more a part of it, so much more interesting imo. No? · 639 days ago ·
