Many a horse's connectiong DOOM the animal to being an also ran. Case in point was this one and the crazy gyrations forcing this almost lame animal to run in the Kentucky Derby....Simliar was Wando, a devastating front running dirt monster who the connections tried to get to win on the lawn....Good horse bad connections

The entire Attard family trains out of Etobicoke Ontario and their season does not start until April....I fyou went through Woodbineenertainment.com or Jim Bannon at Woodbine or Stacey Roberts
Citation was a complete failure at stud however
Cy of course was Citation
Big Cy, for a very long time, held the North American record for consecutive wins in a row at 16 with an overall lifetime mark (which was sullied by his coming back after a bow) of 45: 32-10-2 and not too many have come close to that since.
I hear the fewest complaints coming from horsemen as regards the Tapeta than any outher surface they have trained or run over...Gets high marks especially for consistency of surface unlike Poly that is subject to temperatures
Frame of reference: If we had many European members names like Ribot, Sea Bird, Nashwan, See the Stars, and Rock of Gibraltar would adore the top of the list.
It is really suprising how many names are rejected, It has to be a maz of 18 letters and spaces, not reflect any hidden advertising, cannot be the name of a famous living person without their permission (there were horses named Liz Taylor and Joe Namath) and gelding names are allowed to be recycled every 10 years and there is a resource where prospective namers can check to see if a name is already used. Of course they cant be OFF COLOR, but I have seen many get through....Recall how many names were rejected for Secretariat.
With the weather, it is a wonder that any race track will run this evening
