  • catkid22 via Disqus · No one was catching the winner in this race, but Conquest bowled 3 horses out of the race at the start, smashing the 5 into the six and the seven. The 5, one of the favorites, was smacked back and forth and found himself ten lengths behind. With the seven the favorite, Conquest's shenningans created huge payoffs. The stewards posted an inquiry but let Conquest at her third place finish or it would have truly been boxcar payoffs. Why aren't stewards required to explain their decision if they were the ones who called for the inquiry? You have got to see Conquest's behavior to believe it. Again, no one was catching the winner, but what a travesty by the stewards! · 2 hours ago
Seabiscuit is the greatest horse that did not win the Triple Crown. There are more movies and documentaries about him than most Triple Crown winners, with the exception of the legendary Secretariat. Seabiscuit is extremely popular because he was the first real people's horse. He was a Cal-bred, not expected to amount to much against the Super Kentucky bred champions. But then he took the track by storm winning some big races before going on to defeat the great War Admiral and capturing the heart of a nation. He was like a Hollywood star as you see in all the vintage newsreel footage. Many Americans loved him back in his time as they still do now, admiring his humble and inspiring story. Seabiscuit is by far one the greatest horses in the pantheon of legends. He is great not just for his speedy talent but also for his endearing likable charm and star power. He is the classic Underdog hero.

Apparently the connections of Australian sprinter Brazen Beau weren't overjoyed with the ride he received at Royal-Ascot in the G1 Diamond Jubilee Stakes by jockey Craig Williams. Williams has been let go and replaced by Godolphin stable jockey James Doyle, who will ride Brazen Beau in the G1 Darley July Cup at Newmarket's July Course on July 11th.
Trainer Paul Nicholls with whom Kauto Star was with for much of his career did an interview this morning with AtTheRaces.com and said the accident to Kauto Star actually happened about a week ago and they had been fighting to save his life until complications set in to the point he had to be euthanized.
Finally got around to watching 50 to 1. Overall I was pleased by the movie. Although am I the only one annoyed by how they portrayed Baffert as a joke? I mean it was just over the top...
Multiple Grade 2 winner and globetrotting sire Twining died Sunday in Japan due to an aortic rupture. The 24-year-old son of Forty Niner’s death was confirmed Tuesday by the Japanese-based Paca Paca Farm’s Twitter account. Twining resided at Breeders Stallion Station in Hokkaido, Japan. Bred in Kentucky by Helen Alexander and Helen Groves of King Ranch, Twining was the second-to-last foal out of the 1983 Broodmare of the Year Courtly Dee, whose 15 winners from 17 runners included champion Althea, Grade 1 winners Ketoh and Ali Oop, Grade 2 winners Aishah and Aquilegia, Grade 3 winner Native Courier, stakes winner Princess Oola, and Grade 1-placed Press Card. Twining has sired 18 crops of racing age, with 644 winners and combined progeny earnings of $80,262,237. His best North American runners at stud include Grade 2 winners Two Item Limit and Dawn of the Condor, and Grade 3 winners Pie N Burger, Connected, Top Hit, and Tugger. Twining also sired Twin Sparks, who set a world record time on dirt for six furlongs, covering the distance in 1:06.49 in the Caballos Del Sol Handicap at Turf Paradise in 2009. Article on DRF

Genuine Reward, one of only two live foals produced by Kentucky Derby-winning filly Genuine Risk, will become one of the newest residents of Old Friends Thoroughbred retirement facility in Georgetown, Ky. The 22-year-old son of Rahy began his stud career at a Thoroughbred farm in Virginia, but later moved into other disciplines. He most recently stood as a polo stallion in Sheridan, Wyo., with the American Polo Horse Association listing Perk Connell as his owner. The horse has been pensioned from stallion duty and, late last week, was listed on the Fort Collins, Colo., Craigslist site, with the ad stating, “We haven't used him for a few years, so we're looking for a retirement home for him.” Noted author Laura Hillenbrand was among those to spot the listing, which was brought to the attention of Old Friends founder and president Michael Blowen.

  • amino998 · travel_vic · "stats can be skewed easily. I reacall the old breeding stats in the BloohHORse before they set up the COMPARABLE index. Since the popular and "top" sires bred to the most exclusive and potentially the best mares. OF COURSE having two tickets on the sweepstakes imporved their shot. Once the comparable index was started we could see just how the SIRE half of the equation did without the boost from the blue hen mares. "· · 7 days ago

I like Florida Won at 12-1 ml odds. Liked his win in the Ontario Derby two starts back at Woodbine. Out of Birdstone, he should be able to handle the distance. Also like the veteran Pender Harbour at 6-1 ml odds. Liked his two starts this year. He seems to be rounding into his old form and always dangerous on third start off a layoff.
