When I read the title of RichieBee's Thread, I misunderstood it and thought it was about the 2013 Breeders Cup Juvenile Champion. Further, I thought maybe the crux of the matter concerned his stallion results. So off I went to research the same. I found references to an Irish Horse Christmas Day, Christmas Eve and Christmas Dinner.
How was it I couldn't find a reference to a horse I was sure had won the Breeders Cup Juvenile for Bob Baffert. My error was, of course, Christmas Day was really New Years Day. Son of Street Cry as well as a half to such Luminaries as Zenyatta and Winx.
As for progeny, he is the sire of Maximum Security so maybe there was more than the John Servis diet involved in 2019's success. Today New Years Day is eating sushi and making baby horses somewhere near a Hydrogen Generating Plant on the site of an old melted down Nuclear Reactor in Fukushima. Maybe not too close. The brainchild of a Brazillian Wheeler Dealer who finagled the breeding right and went straight to Japan.
Yes, we are in a Pandemic, The stock market went south, the government is out of control, health care can't fix everybody and kids don't pay much attention to orders.
To quote Richie, "Are you still reading?" The point is there is a lot more horse racing than just the American Version. They raced in South Africa early last Saturday Morning EST, Late that night actually 1:00 a.m our Sunday morning there was a terrific card @ Sha Tin in Hong Kong. Including, masks, gloves and designer clothing. In between, there were about 35 races broadcast from Australia which is now as green as Ireland.
Today, Gulfstream simulcast is carrying a South American signal viva anticuchos.
The problem seems to be one of the data. No Racing Form PP's. No TG's what is racing without piles of data. Oh and the notion that New Yorkers are selfish and won't do what is asked of them wha??? fake news a hoax
