Re: I have a nice horse… now what?

I personally start in maidens 99% of the time. I've seen too many nice horses lose their first stakes, then go on to lose two or three more races and trash their confidence, before they finally win one and get back on track.

Re: Long Overdue Farm: Turf Sprint Stallions (Updated Y59 W12)

Been awhile. Updated top post to include: -SaF is 14 and the clock is ticking. He could go any minute and I can't guarantee that I'll be able to reliably get online to buy him his extra time, so get in while you can, seriously. -Talus is kicking absolute ass. I kinda can't believe it. His first crop...

Re: What's the most disappointing common experience in the SIM?

I don't get too worked up about my yearlings as a whole, but I get really * at those high hypoing BHs that just refuse to produce a damn thing. Yeah, the yearlings have a lasting effect on your barn, but that unfounded hope you have for the sad BH, year after year, foal after foal? Do not like.

Wow nice, I usually try to hypo all the new guys, this one looks nice for routers, a+ hypos from sone of my mares.

Also passes my test for mid studs with my mid tester mares
. Nice multi distance stud here.

Has slight sprint ability, but too low to be of much use.
Thanks Pete!
