Since when are you a pedigree buff?
Since when are siblings exact genetic copies? Hollow-headed loose-chested tinkle
btw, HRN editors, goddamn was not my first word choice
It's a goddamn city, dipshit
Bad business practice comes from those who extend past their expertise. First things first, top mares are not going to stop coming to Super Saver is they raise his fee to 25k, or even 30k.
Second, for a horse whose next two crops will likely be weaker, the extra $7.5k/cover that can be gained will be monstrous in justifying his next two years. Considering he bred 97 mares last year, and assuming his book does not diminish, he will be earning an excess $750,000, an amount almost half of what he earns in a breeding season.
Third, considering a mare gestates every 11 months, it is ridiculous to think that any decision would be made immediately. With breeding season starting in early February, stud fees will come out no earlier than October, and probably after the Breeder's Cup.
Viva Majorca wins this easy.
My grandfather recollects a night spent here as a kid. They were in the know on a fix, but around the final turn, their charge who had led every pole suddenly fell. The entire field swerved, turned around midstretch, and pulled up while the fixed horse was remounted and was declared the winner. The New England fair racing circuit may be too long dead for revivial.
He is. He is built wonderfully as well, and with the foundation line of Arlucea as well as soundness of Broad Brush, he should be a very useful stallion.
