I can not figure out what happened to the Now I Know? Do not have this her career over?....:(
  • Floridaf · She fractured her knee in the Martha Washington Stakes, had surgery to repair the break, and has been retired. She's been booked to Uncle Mo upon recovery. · 866 days ago
  • cocoa2 · To have a baby that can't go an inch over 9f, if they are lucky. · 866 days ago
How's theNow I Know how to practice, soon you will expose it?
  • Mix · And why a pensioner? for a long time I was not here ... · 866 days ago
  • Floridaf · Now I Know will not return to the races. After fracturing her knee in the Martha Washington, she was retired. She will be bred to Uncle Mo upon recovery. · 866 days ago
Was purchased privately by Bonnie Baski, owner of Blue Heaven farm to become a broodmare. According to Baskin's son she is booked to Uncle Mo. I read that and actually groaned aloud. This statement is taken direcly from the Bloodhorse article. "Corndorf credited Alan Porter of Pedigree Consultants in the decision making. 'Both Now I Know and Uncle Mo were precocious as each was a graded stakes winner at 2,' Corndorf said." Just what we need more precocious 2 year olds that can't run the classic distance!

  • travel_vic · explanation of Uncle Mo's trouble: http://www.thoroughbredtimes.com/horse-health/2012/01/18/cholangiohepatitis-career-ending-liver-disease.aspx · 914 days ago
  • Floridaf · His potential was definitely not achieved. Saying that lack of patience was present is absurd. Mo fell ill twice in the same year, and his connections chose to retire him rather than risk his health. If he had been healthy his entire career, we would have seen his true potential. Now, considering the questions surrounding Uncle Mo's ability to get distance (which was not TRULY proven one way or the other), I am not sure that I would have chosen him to breed Now I Know to unless the desired end result was a sprinter/miler. As with Uncle Mo, we will not ever have the chance to know just how far Now I Know could carry her speed. I believe I would have chosen Bernardini, Giant's Causeway, or Awesome Again personally in order to incorporate some proven distance. Just my opinion. · 914 days ago
Same thing happened to her great grandmother, Terlingua.. So sad to end her race career but so glad she is okay. Wish she was being bred with Curlin. Others pale in compairson
Is doing well post-surgery. Rather than breed her, Hemel may decide to sell her. No decision has been made yet, though.
According to drf.com: Now I Know retired after fracturing knee
My heart broke when I heard the news regarding Now I Know's injury and retirement. But at least it was not catastrophic, and we'll get to see her babies run in a few years. Best of luck to Now I Know in her second career as a mom!
  • Mary Z. · Please tell me they're waiting a year for her to start her broodmare career. · 930 days ago
  • likin sparks · Another good one gone to a career ending injury, hopefully she'll be able to enjoy her retirement. · 930 days ago
It's not 18 in a row, but Now I Know looks to keep her undefeated streak going in today's Martha Washington at Oaklawn Park.

Now I know...undefeated in 6 starts...3 in stakes...1 Graded...Filly...Donnie Hemel...all systems go !!
On Feb. 4, breezed 5 furlongs in 1:04.40 (12/16) at Oaklawn Park.
On 1/28, fired a 5 furlong bullet in 1:01 flat (1/23) at Oaklawn Park.
Beautiful to watch and I'm wishing her the best in the future.. One to watch in her next race
yes, Storm cat (with Terlingua out of the greatest horse to ever live Secretariat!~) is the best. He did not show on the track but boy did he produce!~ Gotta love his progeny!
Goes Wire to Wire to win in the Dixie Belle! Woohoo! Perfect 6! :D
Care to take a guess on how many lengths she wins by today in the Dixie Belle? I'll guess 7 1/2
