  • Northport · just a comparison between sires like Tapit and War Front, who got lower class mares in their earlier crops - and then Bernardini, who has gotten arguably some of the best books of any young sire in history, shows how underwhelming Bernardini has been · 220 days ago ·

  • icyhotboo · NYC, There is no place like it in the world. If you can't get it there it doesn't exist. The rest of the East Coast might be pleasantly surprising to you, it has a lot. Then again so does the West Coast. I joke around a lot but America is a great country to live in and I have traveled and lived in other countries. Our medicine, hospitals, universities are the best I've seen. · 945 days ago ·
