  • amfuller · Word is from the necropsy Pulpit died from a blood clot but his body was ravaged with cancer and would have died anyway. So sad. Do these farms not do routine checks for cancer and other stuff? · 462 days ago ·
Goodbye champion.

  • AnnaK · One of the things about all this. Knew nothing about Lord Avie except that there were a few Avie's at my track. Then Avie's Quality came along doing such determinedly admirable runs of it, and we got to see the gracious owner with such good taste in pedigree, and it all falls into place. You learn amazing things in an obituary, and only wish you"d known about the being while they were still alive. Loved learning about him, definitely a wonderful horse. · 470 days ago ·
R.I.P. Lord Avie. Goodbye champ.
I was there when he ran right by Noble Nashua to easily win the Champagne Stakes ... That was 32 years ago. Rest in Peace, Lord Avie.

  • zatt · I was there, Bill. I still consider this the deepest field I have ever seen in the Travers, such a shame that the track was a bit of a mess. Pleasant Colony, Lord Avie, Five Star Flight, Noble Nashua, Lemhi Gold, Summing were all such excellent horses ... I still can't believe Willow Hour won it. Blame the Saratoga slop! · 968 days ago ·
  • MichaelHarris · I was there, too, and I was a big Pleasant Colony fan. Still hurts a little bit. · 968 days ago ·
It's been thirty years, but I remember the Haskell Invitational of 1981 like it was yesterday. Previously known as the Monmouth Invitational, '81 was the first year it was called the Haskell, and on the 1st of August we were all in store for a showdown at the Jersey shore. In one corner you had the ...Read More

  • BrianZipse · Thanks, Brian ... one of those races from my childhood that I will never, ever forget! · 991 days ago ·
  • AndyScoggin · Love that story! Your Dad must have been great at the track. My Dad used to either stake me or we would be partners. I'd go to the window as like a 12 year old and make bets, nobody ever said anything, and I was a runt at that age. · 991 days ago ·
To the surprise of absolutely no one, horses sired by stallions representing the Northern Dancer, Mr. Prospector and Bold Ruler sire lines dominated American racing in 2009, as they have for decades. Runners from these lines won 76 percent of all graded stakes, including 83 percent of Grade Is.Read More
