What the Horse Racing Nation is saying about Pulpit...

One hundred thousand dollars. That’s a lot of money. It’s also what it would cost to supplement a non-Triple Crown nominated horse to racing’s Middle Jewel. Most years, the question whether a horse should be supplemented to the Preakness for that large fee does not even come into play, but 2013 coul...Read More
  • AndyScoggin · I think I would save the $100,000 and shoot for the Haskell, Travers, etc. when all of the current 3YOs are taking a rest from racing. · 354 days ago ·

Super Ninety Nine gave Bob Baffert his third consecutive winner and fourth victory in five years in the Southwest Stakes. Is he just another brilliant miler?Read More

  • travel_vic · No that is the very odd thing about this years group NONE of them have been pushed like they will in a few weeks, BUT one has to recall that energy DISTRIBUTION is all about percentages expended in each fraction not absolute velocities. I am confident that same hall mark that has worked for over 28 years will show up again. · 366 days ago ·
  • amino998 · Thanks travel_vic>> I and ^^others^^ look forward to Derby Day. · 365 days ago ·
With his victory in the Frontrunner Stakes, Power Broker established himself as a legitimate contender for the Breeders' Cup Juvenile and a very early choice for the Kentucky Derby. Read More

  • rafirox · I'd have to agree with Baffert. That is the only reason I picked him. · 562 days ago ·
  • toni arias von hohenzollern · ***de los dos pulpit.. sin lugar a dudas el que mejor pedigree tiene.. pero.. mr. prospector line... mejor 1 milla... 1m 1/8.. pista dura mejor para los dos..... "water is diferent".. avanti sempre. · 366 days ago ·
It is the AP Indy, line that provides the distance in these colts. Pulpit, was nice horse, but not at the classic distance.
This weeks 2 dark horses are both bred on the same cross by Pulpit out of mares by Quiet American. Both Mr. Palmer and Abstraction have caught many people's attention, yet appear to be slightly under the radar - what makes it more interesting is they're both bred on similar crosses to Bernardini(AP Indy-Quiet American). The late Pulpit has left us with many contenders. Pyro, Ice Box, El Padrino intially come to mind over the past few years, and this year appears more beyond: Super Ninety Nine, Power Broker, Title Contender, Mr. Palmer, Abstraction, Cruise Director, Sign(f). Not to forget the high profiles of all his 3rd generation runners, which most definitely deserve a seperate thread :)
How can this nice horse pulpit be ranked above Cigar.......something is wrong??
Pulpit Tapit ,Malibu moon,Im pretty sick of these sires.. Great 7-8 F but man I hate there progeny on the triple trail

  • zxswordxz · Tim...I sense your frustration just like me but tcglory is right. The dam side play a key role. Just look like Secretariat pedigree, Nearco(Bold Ruler) line full of speed and good for 8-8.5f runner but Princequillo(Something Royal) line can run all day long. That combo got lucky and produce a red colt that was just awesome. Sham is also a decent of Princquillo. I'm frustrated as hell with US breeders but that is what seems to be selling. Check out Bobby Flay direction in breeding. I like his bold moves. · 443 days ago ·
  • TimSmith · I understand the cocept but non the less dont like these sires... I could have to you Hansen couldnt win the derby the day he was born.. · 443 days ago ·
Here is a page dedicated to some of those we lost in 2012... http://www.drf.com/blogs/2012-memoriam
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?

  • Peppermint Paddy · Insurance co. pay off the claims of a high dollar horse, you'd think they would insist on bloodwork. I visited Claiborne back in Sept of last year, which means Pulpit was cancer-struck then, which really didn't show in his appearance · 462 days ago ·
  • travel_vic · Peppermint Paddy. CANCERS do NOT develop at the same rate. Some kill you in three months, so those dysplastic cells MAY or more than likely MAY NOT have gotten a foothold that far back...Certainly would be asymptomatic back then. · 462 days ago ·
As we say good-bye to 2012, it is time to take a few minutes to say our final farewells to those we lost this year...Read More

It may no longer be fresh in the mind, but once upon a time, February 19, 2011, to be exact, Al Stall unveiled a well-bred son of Pulpit in a maiden special weight at Fair Grounds. What ensued, after the gates sprang open in the six furlong event, is stuff of legend. Uncle Mo, or no Uncle Mo, it wou...Read More
December 6, 2012 marked a day of sadness in the Thoroughbred world. With the sudden, unexpected death of the grand Pulpit, the breeding industry suffered a huge loss. A perennial leading sire, the son of the great A.P. Indy will be greatly missed in the industry, but his offspring provide us with a ...Read More
Pulpit was bred to be a champion. His bloodlines will continue as part of Claiborne's history. Read More
Was found dead in his paddock today. Showed no signs of health issues. Just dead. This is shocking.
Thinking he died of a heart attack. My horse died of one last year. My vet said its probably the only thing that can kill a horse that fast without any symptoms until right before it happens. R.I.P Pulpit.
  • Horsefan90 · That's what I was thinking too. A very sad loss for racing fans and breeders. May his future crops solidify his greatness as a stallion. · 496 days ago ·
A truly sad loss. We will see his legacy live on within his crops.
Pulpit, one of the best sons of A.P. Indy at the track and in the shed passed away yesterday at the age of 18 according to the Thoroughbred Daily News (TDN). Read More
  • yukichan · Rest in peace Pulpit. Thank you for leaving us such a wonderful legacy, plus the promise of stardom in your upcoming crops. I'll watch them all with delight and fondness. · 496 days ago ·
My favorite 2yo colt of 2012 = Power Broker. My favorite 2yo filly of 2012 = Sign. Rest in Peace, mighty Pulpit.
Oh my gosh...this is so sad! RIP Pulpit....way too early to go. Hope they find out what happened and it doesn't remain a mystery.
