Here's an interesting footnote to BC race card- ALL BUT Flotilla and Beholder trace back yo MR. PROSPECTOR!!! Amazing influence in this day & time!!! One of the most influential sires in American racing- He's still kicking butt in the breeding shed through his progeny!!! :-)
Hang tough, Paynter; know everyone is praying for you!
Talk about influential sires, anyone who pays attention has to realize the tremendous influence of Mr Prospector especially o. the distaff side even to this day.
I am greatly saddened by the loss of this game horse, having watched him at Aqueduct last year. RIP, Ryan-
Theatrical sired a colt out of solar slew (dam of cigar). Does anyone know what this colt's registered name is?
Praying for a successful surgery and quick recovery for GR.
any update on Giant Ryan's status?
just announced severe vascular damage & both sesamoids fractured- doesn't look good! :'(
any word on his prognosis?
Man o' War is a definite 10! For a horse to still have records standing 90 yrs after he raced is amazing, and the only reason he didn't have the triple crown is because his owner didn't like churchill downs and he didn't believe in racing young horses that early in the year. Also, despite Belmont's insistence of breeding him mostly to his own mares, thereby denying Man o' War access to the BEST mares, his progeny were amazingly successful!
