I agree with you. I think that just when fall in love with the horses, they are soon retired. I wish they would race longer, as long as they're healthy and want to run.

Nan CCCCCCCCCCC...

Have I met you before?  I don't think so, I'll introduce mySelf, Blum Gone, runner of 157 races.

I agree with you, healthy and want to run.  Sometimes I wasn't healthy, but I ran anyway.  I was pin fired lots of times.  I had no other value as a gelding, but to run.

Mummy says she's glad she found me since she has lots of love to give me, and I love her too.  Today, its way cooler than its been & I'm kicking up my heels and giving her a hard time. <snort>

Click here and then "gallery" to see more photos of me and my ole lady, Touche.  Oh...and Mummy...

Jiminy Crickets! Geesh, another 3 yr old.......what is this racing world come to?? I don't think I would be plunking down mega bucks, to breed to a horse that was injured while only a 3 yr old......maybe bringing Lonhro here will help, as he is advertised as an "old school" type of horse...of course, it doesn't hurt when you are built similar to a quarter horse, lol, he is a very sturdy boy!

I know!

In a strange way I'm not upset about JP though.  I hope I'm not confusing him with another horse, but I think he was a tad mismanaged and bounced around among trainers and moved from the West to East Coast. He had a ton of promise but it was never fully tapped into.  I'm GLAD he is retired to stud vs running in claimers,etc.  Not that he would have but you just never know!

I'm thrilled about Lonrho coming here! He WAS amazing and hopefully can infuse some of that into our breeding over here!
