  • Mary Z. · Hi kaitlin. So, I do try to take Mondays off, but I still read along, however this one has me pensively half-smiling. First, I do wonder how these old threads are found. Sleuth that I am, I can only go back so far and then the latest comments appear, without my being able to access older threads. Next thought, nice to see that Flat Out has improved in the public opinion polls(p.s., that is extra heavy on sarcasm, because I thought he was very good when Havre de Grace beat him in the Woodward. Next, funny how Royal Delta has faced males twice, and at the World's richest race. First try, understandable excuses, this year, even after the BCLC run, I was surprised to see him try to have her wire at 10f on tapeta, but that's not really my point. My point is that the connections only sent her believing she'd run quite well even have a chance at winning. Why then no open company races here, in the U.S. You'd have to ask them. My opinion? As for last year, why the BCLC repeat over trying the BCC itself? The Personal Ensign mistake ride, coupled with the place in her first start of the year.So, she probably would have had to win, not just place to be considered for HOTY. Not only that, but with this mare you have the situation that her broodmare career is set, not only that, but you have to think about how certain races might set up or not. I mean, in another BCC at Santa Anita, you'll have really tough , fast males that can handle the 10f, and by those I mean Dude and Fort Larned. If the Game On Dude that was favored last year gets a great start, and he and Fort Larned duel, you then have the closers, Royal Delta's stablemates, to come charging home. Let's take the JCGC over the Beldame. Okay, first her roomie, Flat Out will be going for the three-peat. Yes, different owners, but still a bit of a conflict there for the trainer. Not only that, but say she won at Belmont going 10f against males? Then the pressure to pick the Classic would be huge. Woodward over Personal Ensign (I haven't checked the dates)? I hope she would earn a touch more respect if she beat Flat Out in that than Havre De Grace did, although Havre de Grace was a fantastic, fast racing filly, if anyone didn't miss enjoying her at the time. Finally, another thing is, contrary to how perhaps I portray it, I'm not her only fan, it's just that she doesn't have toys of herself yet, and I suspect her fans are rather on the quiet side. · 352 days ago ·

is she in foal to anyone?
I’ve never been to Australia, but I’ve always wanted to go. One of the main reasons for a visit would be to immerse myself in one of their big race days, and in case you do not know … big race days down under are very big indeed. Winter may be on the horizon for us, but it is the middle of springtim...Read More

  • jeanpaul.stannus · Sorry, I have stumbled onto this site late. Great to see some overseas interest in our best weight for age race. I had my money on 'Ocean Park' but the less said the better. And after 'Green Moon' didn't fire in the Caulfield Cup I left it out of the Melbourne Cup (worlds greatest race). The less said about that the better. · 476 days ago ·

Astonishes me she is 60 on all time females, how many horses can claim ,they are only horse in the history of racing to acheive what she acheived ,it would compare to winning the Kentucky Derby and three breeders cup classics at least
3 Melbourne cups, and breaking the record for heaviest weight carried in a very long time! Come on people! Dont be so biased and just rank your american horses! They arent the only good horses!
He is the result of a dream mating between two champions, Lonhro and Makybe Diva. The colt, who is only 10 days old, is already estimated to be worth between $2-$3 million. Lonhro and Makybe Diva were last decade's most dominant - and popular - racehorses. The two champions won 41 races between them...Read More
She is such an amazing horse, I really don't know why she isn't ranked higher on this site!
