  • Sullivan · Secretariat is from Secretariat General, moderator of the United Nations. Very powerful name, as all great stallions have. If not Ziconic, what would you name the colt? · 16 hours ago ·

As arguably the most popular horse of the 21st century, nearly everything Zenyatta does becomes news. Her many fans got a thrill when Team Zenyatta proudly announced that Zenyatta’s second foal, a colt by Tapit, now has a name...Read More
This was interesting....upon reading 'Frankel's' bio they had this to say...."Since 1900, of British-bred racehorses only Ribot has won more races and finished his career unbeaten (racing largely in Italy).[6] Frankel's record of nine consecutive Group 1 wins is unsurpassed and has been equalled only by the U.S.A. filly Zenyatta".

her War Front foal should be due any time now right?
Every time I see the John Shirreffs trained mare Eblouissante step out onto the track I think to myself, she looks so much like Ruffian. The long gracefulness of her stride to the nearly jet black coat, she is about as close a Ruffian reproduction as I have seen.Read More

  • EP Taylor · I didn't even mention Derby weekend at Epsom or St.Leger weekend at Doncaster. That was also just England. Go to France, and you have short meets at Deauville, Chantilly, Maison Laffitte and Longchamps that offer high quality racing. · 59 days ago ·

  • DANCERS1FAN · Good luck to you Grace! Hope to see you in the winners circle the first Saturday in May! By the time you are training I am sure you will have learned that what "show or pleasure" horse people say about horse training does not apply to race horses. When I was young I heard the same thing about racing two year olds because in other disciplines they wait a bit longer. However, research has shown that horses that run at two are actually MORE sound than those who don't. Training them at a young age actually helps them develop proper bone etc. There are a number of studies out there you can read about.... Good luck to you! · 21 days ago ·

  • DANCERS1FAN · Always thrilled to see young people who love horses and racing. I fell in love with racing at age 7 also (which was a long time ago now...LOL) when I read about Native Dancer in a book. There were other famous horses in the book also but he became my life long favorite right then! If you are ever at Santa Anita again, I hear Doug O'Neil and John Sherrifs often let fans come to the barn... Best of luck to you! · 30 days ago ·

To see Zenyatta was a treat / And it was hard to believe she had feet / For each bounding stride / Going five wide / Left the rest of the horses well beat!

  • Northport · From what I have read, Ballydoyle is notoriously private. You could probably visit the Stud farm by asking via email but the training facilities may be trickier. You could ask the Coolmore fanpage if there is any possible way. · 32 days ago ·

  • yukichan · I visited Coolmore last summer (Sept)--exquisite! And the folks (Peter Steele!) there were so very accommodating to me and my husband. Frankly, the most sires are shuttling, but it seemed to be no problem to book a private tour. I think you saw my photos with Galileo, Footstepsinthesand, Holy Roman Emperor, Danehill Dancer? I contacted months in advance through their official website (under contact/visitors). There are guard stations to the stallions area, which is where Mr. Magnier's private residence is too. · 32 days ago ·

I'll probably have to re-read this probably three or four times, to comprehend 1/10 of what knowledge you have acquired, but, I appreciate your forewarnings about reading further ahead, at the risk of possibly getting lost(ha!!!).

  • LAZMANNICK · Icy, Buckpasser won a lot of races by short margins. Of his 25 wins, 14 were by ¾’s of a length or less and of those, 5 were by a neck or less. In those 14 wins, in 9 of them he was only a length, or less than a length, behind at the stretch call and in 5 of them was no more than a neck in front at the stretch call. IMO, this suggests a horse that likes to wait for horses and not run away from them, in other words, like BB said, he likes the competition. In that 15 race win streak his average win margin was slightly greater than a length and 11 of those wins were by ¾’s of a length or less……I also have some of his DRF PP’s for a couple of races. Two of his works really stood out. Before going into the Bowling Green in June 17, 1967, his first start of turf, they worked him extensively on turf including an 11F work in 2.20 4/5 at Belmont, 8 days before the race. This could suggest laziness as the Bowling Green was only 18 days after the Met Mile run on May 30. He also worked 4F on turf on June 5th and 5F on June 14th. In that Met Mile he had three works in 13 days leading up to it including an incredible 7F work in 1.21 2/5 on May 22 at Aqueduct. I believe that that work was only 1/5th off the Aqueduct 7F track record. · 59 days ago ·

  • illhaveanothertriplecrown · As someone that started out a Triple Crown enthusiast, I have come to love watching the claimers. Maybe because thats the best we can do up here in Boston but I have also seen some crazy things happen with them that I would consider great, despite the fact that the horse would not challenge any of the runners that ran on BC day. · 79 days ago ·

Horse Racing Simulation created a dream matchup race of Zenyatta vs. nine other all-time greats: Cigar, Affirmed, Citation, Seabiscuit, Ruffian, Barbaro and others. Read More

  • Sullivan · 9f at Pimlico. Ruffian and Affirmed weren't burn outs, and that's why I didn't say they were. Affirmed was game, but only when he looked the other horse in the eye. You could rally right past him like Alydar did in the Champagne I believe if you were going fast enough. The idea Ruffian could hold off Citation seems to be a little nutsy, I think sixth to two TC winners, two BCC winners and a damn good handicap male isn't that bad · 80 days ago ·
