What are you saying? Home cooking? The Breeders' Cup is in California this year. She doesn't have to travel anywhere if the BC is in her backyard. And why risk her getting stressed like she does and ship her out? You're right about one thing, she does have a logical excuse. Not every horse enjoys flying. Lava Man was the same way and he's still in the Hall of Fame. Never won a race outside of California. And it's not like she hasn't tried. She threw a huge fit before the oaks and still ran an awesome second. She's been training as good, if not even a bit better than she did last year. She's aging like the finest wine.
Can't wait to see my favorite girl run tomorrow!! She's been training wonderfully and I think she's ready to put on a show :)
I am getting so annoyed with these "Kitten" names. A lot of them don't even sound good. I get that Kitten's Joy is a big part of the Ramsey's life but names should be unique and mean something. But whatever. It's just one opinion. Camelot Kitten ran well today
I like how Runhappy is trained. I always liked how horses a long time ago were trained. When I start training horses I'm going to let them out to pasture and let them stretch their legs instead of keeping them stabled all day with an hour of exercise. And no drugs unless absolutely positively necessary. It's definitely a positive way of training, Runhappy being the best example of that.
one of my all time favorites. She was incredible.
What are you even talking about? It sounds like you're saying Beholder hasn't made history. No, she hasn't broken record after record or has a 19 race win streak, but she was hardly a shade shy in both time and margin of victory in the Pacific Classic. So what if she didn't break Zenyatta's record? Greatness isn't defined by a clock or a time. That and she's the first horse in nearly 4 decades to mantain top form and win a Grade 1 as a 2yo, 3yo, 4yo, and now 5yo. You can't say that saying Beholder is one of the best of her generation is degrading to these other fantastic mares. That's degrading to Beholder. She's making her own history and taking her own path to do it. And they didn't say she had 19 wins. They said 20 starts with 15 wins, 9 being G1 races. She belongs in talks with history because she's a great mare just like the rest of the ones you've mentioned. She's only the second horse behind Zenyatta to win two different BC races, and the first to win the Juvenile Fillies and the Distaff. What you're saying doesn't make hardly any sense. If anything, more of it is your opinion.
Yes. Her official breeze should be in a few days. She seemed to be just fine over the Keeneland surface, very eager yet professional.
She's supposed to gallop tomorrow or Thursday. She walked under tack this afternoon and was super bright and alert!
With all these breakdowns happening at Keeneland right now (Rock Fall a big name here) it terrifies me when it comes to not only Beholder, but every horse running in the Breeders' Cup. Not only that, it'll only add fuel to the anti horse racing fire that horses are treated horribly and run into the ground, which is completely false on 99% of accounts. I just hope Keeneland investigates the surface or something before the BC.
I don't even handicap first of all. So that argument is invalid. Second, just because you don't like a horse doesn't give you a right to say they deserve to die. You're the schmuck.
