I proposed a national solution to the retired horse problem, one that would make horse racing thrive on the sports and entertainment scene. It fell on deaf ears, maybe because I wasn't eloquent enough in explaining all the aspects of my solution. I am going to try to sell it again, in short form. Basically it starts with every broodmare owner putting one hundred dollars into the registry. Every stallion owner donates one out of every ten breedings to the registry (I use the registry, only because it is a central entity for the industry. For that $100.00, each broodmare gets a chance at a free breeding to a stallion, luck of the draw as to which stallion, ($1,000 or $300,000). This figures out to every tenth mare gets a free breeding. The registry uses the funds from the broodmares to care for retired male horses (most females will be in the draw) The winner of each stallion cover, can use that as they wish, with reasonable restrictions) The stallion owners have to understand that by doing this, they are going to have more mares to breed to each and every year, so it is a win for them too. Broodmares will become extremely popular because they have at least a ten per cent chance at a free stud fee, consequently that will attract more people into the industry, which will bring more fans to the track, because a neighbor has a colt by a super stud and the whole town wants to go watch it run. All the old geldings are fed and happy too. End of story.
Is that all you can get from King jerry????
If this guy holds together, the others are running for 2nd money
dorochenko's win in the LD is proof that anything can happen in horse racing, i remember him when he came to yakima meadows and tried to ride, trie is the key word!!
hay don, i'm looking for a cheap bush horse to run this summer, a gelding that is a notch below the $4000 level, do you know any that might fit the bill?
I like Mike, have known him from his days at Yakima Meadows, it would be great for a hardtack like him to win the big one, and kudos to his main man steinman, owners that stick with trainers are few and far between, but normally are winners in the long run
