the only major concern i had with him was that if he could adapt to other race track that wasnt santa anita, now that we can move on from that concern, maybe just maybe, triple crown
Really thought he was gonna get there today, got caught in the last stride
her youtube channel its amazing, i would love that she had the time to upload new videos
We do not have triple crown winners any more, because of the problem Matt tries to solve here, what is more eye catching? the winner of the Derby, the preakness and the BC classic, or the winner of the belmont, the JC gold cup and the brooklyn hdcp? people try to breed the fast miler that can go 10 fourlongs, than the big strong horse that can go the big distances, the middle distances sell more than the so called "dead distances", this problem does not appear in south america, or england, because the important races are run in 2400 meters just like the belmont, so a horse that runs a mile or 10 fourlongs has no chance of being the top horse inthe country. To fix this problem here, we need some big farms to stop focusing on the big money for lets say 4 to 5 years, and start breeding stamina horses with stalliond from england or maybe argentina, to mix the offspring with milers from here and eventually in 4 to 5 crops, we'll have a horse that can run 9 fourlongs and 13 as well, its not an exact science, because if it would be everybody would be breeding triple crown winners every year, but its not a secret that year in and year out, the long distance races are won by second tear horses, not the top ones because they are not build for those races.
I hope Request wins today, love that horse
Really Nice, I wanted Slew O Gold to win, but Wild Again and Gate Dancer played bumper cars with him
Is there any post on HRN that tells the highlights of HP since the beginning till the end of it?
wich horse finished his carreer with a different name?
but the competiton that a horse faces in emerald downs is not the same as the competition in saratoga, belmont, santa anita, etc
