Midnight Lute I think has an extra year on Pioneerof the Nile, but I would still pick Midnight Lute
Damn. He hasn't been the most consistent but has a decent record in the race in 2012 and 2011
I wasnt trying to sound defensive, apologies if I came off that way. I was just trying to provide a little tidbit of knowledge for anyone interested!
A lot of the questions you ask can just be answered by a google search, lol
Goblin, I haven't ever heard of Black N Beauty but just did a little research and he did look like he had some promise as a two year old, even though Zayats only bought him for $2,500 as a yearling. While Adena obviously tries it's hardest to keep the horses it bred/raced out of harmful situations (as most farms do), they don't quite have the "we take care of our own" program that Three Chimneys does (3Cs covers horses bred, sold, raced, sired by, etc., while Adena I think focuses more on ones they bred and raced). I know Mrs. Stronach *did* (did because I haven't seen/spoken to her in a very long time, and she is getting older now) along with their retirement program manager, Stacie Clark, try to keep track of older Adena Springs horses or ones who they have raced and eventually sold (whether it is via claiming or through their rehab and retirement program), I do not think they have quite the thorough system that 3C's does, so they can only do so much as is brought to their attention by others. In some cases, like Rackateer, they can get there in time, but at other times, like Backstreet Bully (who was stabled at the same barn as my horse at Adena North when I rode there), they just cannot get there in time.
Any word on if he was injured? I can't see a ton of appeal for him as a stallion
Voodoo Prince, the first foal of Champion Mare Ouija Board, was sold at Tattersalls Horses of Racing Age Sale in October for 80,000 guineas and has been exported to Australia
Mendip has been retired and will stand in Turkey
Yeah, they said this after the arc but I was hoping maybe they would be swayed to keep him in training one more year. However, we are pretty lucky for them to have kept him him in training as a five year old, and he has had a very goos season regardless
