Can the Pharoah finally be the one?

Am pleased to be working with the teams at Bloodstock Research and Twin Spires to provide pedigree analysis for this year's historic running of the Belmont Stakes. The link will take you to the order page.

Will never forget those first plans made in the track kitchen at Canterbury. We talked about The Big Horse as if we knew him. And if not for your daring nature, you might have never found him. Tears poured, blood spilled, lessons learned.

In sincere appreciation for the opportunity...

dusting off the colors...

Found this reminder when I pulled these out of a tack locker today

American Act duels with Grade I winner Drill to the wire in the Grade II San Vicente with Grade I winner Creative Cause finishing third

From this point forward, will just let the horses do the talking...

I'm still here...

If you look at your reflection in the bottom of a well what you see is only on the surface
If you try to see the meaning hidden underneath the measure of the depth can be deceiving

The bottom has a rocky reputation
Joe Walsh - The Confessor

I am writing you today to tell you that despite my own best efforts, I am not dead and neither am I quitting the business.

Looking back on the combination of experiences that shaped my current existence has honed my eye for the fast and true -- and made me learn to eschew the company of anything less.

The Big Horse is very much in our future.

He never writes

This blog isn't completely dead and proof of that today comes from dear friend Brenda Rick who forwarded photos of this good looking colt. He is a Minnesota bred son of Gazebo (Unbridled - With Every Wish by Lear Fan), a sire whose sister Oatsee has certainly bolstered his family's reputation. Leaving it to the readers of this space to determine in their own minds who this colt might look like.

There is nothing quite as fascinating for me as the study of Thoroughbred pedigree and I am grateful for the opportunity to be indulged in that passion. The search for the next truly good horse is a never ending pursuit.
