Hillbilly Royalty is intriguing here.
Because she's a six year old mare. Wondered why the China Horse Club bought her an immediately sent her to Singapore. It would be great to see her stateside again, and one would hope she gets another shot at the BC...
She scores in her international debut! Winning the richest race ever staged at Kranji--the Singapore Cup. Smart move by her connections--I wonder if China Horse Club will continue her racing or retire her?

Displays again why he's top-rated horse worldwide! http://www.racing.com/videos/2015-02-21/lankan-hands-out-spankin
She lost her 14/15 Galileos, so perhaps less travel is best for her.
Watanni! They sure love him! youtu.be/_Zd0K2NwJG8
Got a laugh from reading NY Times article on San Antonio-where they proclaim SB has much upside and value as stud. Maybe they know something we don't? NOT! http://www.nytimes.com/2015/02/08/sports/shared-belief-edges-california-chrome-in-showdown-at-santa-anita-park.html?ref=sports
Love the ol' man...but he hasn't been the same since his suspensory ligament tear injury after his Santa Anita Handicap 2nd place finish. He's got nearly $660K in earnings. Is there a paddock for him at Old Friends? Surely Wertheimer and Frere do NOT need to drop him through the claiming ranks. Mandella obviously could not get him to his previous form. He's 8--let him retire. Enough of the embarrassing races for this trooper...enough.
Was one of the best sprinters in his hey day...happy that he was able to enjoy some retirement. Laminitis--when will we find a cure...
Watching Zenyatta's BCC win never gets old...
