  • kay.robinett · what percentage of stallions fail at stud? My guess is that it would be rather high? (And what would be a failure? I guess we would have to come up with a working definition of a failure first). And I apologize for the multiple posts. There is something wrong with my mouse (at least I hope it is only the mouse and not something with the computer itself or corrupted software). I have a new mouse on order from Amazon as of tonight. · 1037 days ago
  • Sullivan · As far as a failing stallion, you could look at it a number of ways. How was he as an investment? Were his foals of a higher or lower racing class than him? How was his fertility? There are so many factors, that only the economic one is feasible and even that is at the mercy of marketing, prestige of farm, and support · 1037 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. · 1482 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.. · 1482 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 · 1501 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. · 1501 days ago
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. · 1535 days ago
A truly sad loss. We will see his legacy live on within his crops.
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.
RIP Pulpit.
Rest in Peace Pulpit. a very nice horse. very very shocking.
R.I.P. Pulpit. Truly a tragedy.
