Re: TBS Broodmare auction

Yes, re: limit is 10 mil for reserves.

If you don't like the reserves, don't bid. Those were the prices I was willing to let them go. I'm happy to have them back.

The sky falls....

Tonight the mighty mare Skyfall passed foaling a Dave Matthews Band filly that I will be retaining for my broodmare barn. I went to write a sappy sentimental post about this Derby winning gal, and what she meant to me as a broodmare once I got her, but I wanted to start out by saying "Skyfall was bo...

Re: Improvents W9D1 are here one day early?

The peak comment is interesting. It definitely does not guarantee that the horse won't show a better gallop. I have a 4yo TM who had an allowance-peak comment w8-d3 and stakes-peak w8-d7 I think I remember the steward saying that there are two ways for a horse to improve (although I have no recolle...

Re: Freak Population in Thoroughbred's?

We've gotta come up with a new word. The little preview window just says we are discussing the freak population. I mean, most of us....!

Re: Improvents W9D1 are here one day early?

Same here, but i wonder if it's not that improvements are any more likely, but rather that the gallop comment is less "misleading" than it used to be, to quote the FAQ forum. That's the idea. We didn't change the percentage of horses that improve, but we changed how you see it, because so many peop...

Re: 'Natural' chaser rating?

Ability ratings are nice to know, so this is not a post about getting rid of gallops. But I race my horses based on how they perform on the track. As an experiment in willpower, I have one horse I have never galloped and just ran. I plan on doing it with a few more. Just wish there was another way ...

Dearest Lovely Steward, quit taking out your aggressions on the chaser people. Abuse some dirt route thoroughbreds instead, you know....the golden children. The cutest and everyones favorites.

Re: To Admin and our beloved Steward

The ability to purchase game points probably influences the decision to not accept any form of advertising? I agree Nick, watching YouTube lately isn't as enjoyable as it once was. Personally, I never wear clothing that makes me a proxy billboard for an athletic company, for instance. I agree, I tr...

8.0 Things That Didn't Make It

Which all go along the lines of "ways to take money out"... More comprehensive "Book This Mare" button, which pays a fee, 3/4 to the SIM and 1/4 to the stallion owner (bye bye money) that guarantees a spot in a busy stallion's book.

Re: Purse cuts

There has been angst can mixers make $350,000 with these cuts and will this make our already tight stallion situation worse. I have a Paint Router with a super nice pedigree but as of right now he’s 5 with 2 stakes win, a 5th in the Steward’s Cup, and $150,000 in earnings. I feel like I could get h...

Re: Congrats!!!

Thanks everyone. I've loved this horse since I bred him on the anniversary of my mom's death. Not being a Debbie Downer but I know my mom who was a racehorse trainer her whole life would have approved of him! She enjoyed listening to me talk about my fake horses and suggested names at times. She al...
