Why should their offspring determine who was a better racehorse? Does breeding ability improve Mr. Prospector's racing accomplishments and diminish Cigar's?
True, but the previous owners weren't just selling a race horse they were selling him as a breeding prospect. Since the amount was undisclosed, I'm sure they received more than a fair price for him.
I should think King Abdullah is not too concerned about that money
Knew I recognized this boy! Met him in the barns last fall at keeneland http://imgur.com/yT6n4zT
Did anyone read this latest Beyer article on DRF? http://www.drf.com/news/andrew-beyer-fountain-youth-result-confirms-bias I had to reread this one to figure out what he was trying to say because he claims GP doesn't have a real speed bias but then goes on to talk about how the top 2 in the FOY benefited purely from the bias. Normandy Invasion was the only horse on dirt to not win on the lead that day. After all this he finally goes on to say " The track may have been an excuse for Top Billing, but – bias or no bias – he should have mustered more of a rally than he did. His was a disappointing effort." I know there are a lot of TB fans here, myself included, but I have yet to see anyone say he gave a poor performance. Any thoughts? i try not to take Mr. Beyer to seriously
Didn't see it posted, but Wise Dan worked 3F yesterday at Keeneland 36.00, 1/1
I'm partial to all the Ramsey horses but I'm a big fan after seeing him in person at Saratoga. Been watching his works (looks like he and Kitten Kaboodle are on a similar schedule) but wish we would hear something soon about his next race.
where did you hear about this?
that escalated quickly
There was also mention of Successful Dan- they said his last work went really well. With WD, I'm wondering if they held out til now to run longer on dirt because there is a rather slim chance of his HOY three-peat. Honestly, I don't ever see the connections using Dan as a "traveling freak show," and certainly don’t view a single race on dirt this season as being a disservice to him. Even if he threw in a clunker I should hope that wouldn’t diminish his incredible turf abilities in anyone’s eyes.
