Workout notice, Louisiana Downs, is a mistake? I thought he was retired.

  • yukichan · I sent email to Vinery and got this: Vinery New York at Sugar Maple Farm, "He was sold in the November sale to a South American agent. He is at stud. He stood one year with us in 2013, then was sold for stud duties elsewhere." · 214 days ago
  • SSilence86 · I remember he was in the sales ring in Nov. It all makes sense now. I wish him well, as I really like him · 214 days ago
last i heard he was sold privately.... Any news yet??
I wonder why no farms want to stand him? was he really that bad of a horse?
Wow, only sold for $150,000. He went ot Dr. Oscar Benavides, Agt. for St. George Stables. you think he will go back into racing? he stud for a year already
So who bought this guy?

  • SSilence86 · He was sold as a Racing or Stallion prospect. I'm hoping since he had an alright year, that they'll keep him in training. However, I wouldn't be surprised to hear of his retirement soon. · 404 days ago
  • Buckpasser · SS. I would greatly appreciate it if you could keep tabs on him. Thank you again for the info. I remember Hursch and Ethel and Patrice Jacobs as fixtures, along with the Phipps Family and Allaire DuPont of the NY racing scene in the '60's. · 404 days ago
My guy is consigned to the Keeneland sales.

  • SSilence86 · He won't be next year if WinStar lets him go through the ring and he sells. · 409 days ago
I hope he does well at stud. I like him.

  • SSilence86 · Sullivan here is his conformation shot..... http://www.bloodhorse.com/stallion-register/stallions/138027/rule · 542 days ago
  • Sullivan · I hope they take one this summer, not fair to grade him as he hasn't filled out yet. His pasterns are a concern for me, very long, beautiful hind end but the front end just doesn't match it · 542 days ago
Rule has been retired and he will stand at Vinery New York for $6,500. http://www.drf.com/news/rule-stand-vinery-new-york-6500
He has dropped so far...

  • buds · Again Im too stoned on turkey to make out your comments. · 755 days ago
buds, Rule is entered in the Frank "Pancho" Martin Stakes, 8.5 f at Belmont, 10/19/12. The small field also includes Hymn Book.
  • buds · Thats funny Mary. He has a good chance at a lower level stakes race. He will probably place behind Hymn Book!-) · 793 days ago
If the field stays this strong, Rule will not win this one. You got that Mary!-)

  • buds · You got that Mary ---> !-) <--- That sign indicates good fun and humor. I know Rule likes those NY tracks. Lets just hope it stays a competitive race · 870 days ago

Go baby go! Good luck today and safe trip for all
The way the track came up at Churchill Downs, looking like a swimming pool, on Kentucky Derby day. I really believe that Rule would've thrived in the Kentucky Derby had he been given the chance. Rule had won the 09' Delta Jackpot Stakes easily in almost identical track conditions. I think the only question mark about how well Rule would've fared in the 2010 Kentucky Derby would've been if he could get 10 furlongs or not? Because he had already proven he could run well on a sloppy racetrack.
  • mshutty · I'll have to disagree...regardless of track conditions, the pace that day projected to be wicked. Rule would have been in that mix. However, I would say that he projected to perform best of the speedsters. · 1553 days ago
