blanketofroses Firing Line
~
2nd in the Kentucky derby just right behind our Triple Crown Winner
His jockey was Gary Stevens who is an amazing and experienced rider.
People say the only reason he didn't win was because he never switched leads in the stretch. ~
I start school tomorrow cramps are killing me right now

Ran quite a race in the Derby alongside American Pharoah and Firing Line
Didn't have the greatest of luck with the muddy track at Pimlico upsettingly. After that The owners and trainer made the choice to give Dortmund a little break.

He's a very large Thoroughbred when I see him racing he towers over them

blanketofroses Hey guys sorry for my lack of posting! -

Happy to say we finally got the Old racehorse stable, Gaingo! It's got 175 acres, a 2 acre pond, two separate stables (the smaller one with bigger stalls was for racehorses) now it'll be for adult boarders. The bigger one (we assume it's the breeding barn considering it had 5 large coaling stalls) is for us!
-
Now comes the EXCITING NEWS!
On the property is a half mile race track! My trainer said I can use it since she knows I love racehorses,
AND I'm going to test ride two horses tomorrow to possibly buy one! The one we are interested in the most is a 17 year old Sorrel appendix named Ringo!

blanketofroses MINE THAT BIRD
-
He is my absolute all time favorite race horse to ever be birthed into this world.
Dam- Mining My Own
Sire- Birdstone
He placed 1st in the Kentucky derby with the odds 50-1
I love the fact that he was trained by cowboys and almost everyone thought they were a joke.
The movie 50-1 made me head on heels for him

blanketofroses Wise Dan

The farm that I ride with lives across from a old racehorse stable. It's called Gaingo because that was the name of the horse that won the money to buy it. (It's around a million or two) anyway my farm has a HUGE possibility of leasing out the entire place. The women buying it said we could lease out everything including the Barn, Covered Arena, Pasture area, house, andddd The Track. So we would move our horses over there and ride there from now on. And the women has 28 horses.(she does harness racing/ we do barrel racing) she moved to Nashville for music so she said we could muck out stalls and groom her horses and work. And my trainer says we could work to pay off out board (which is $250 a month) She recently found an appendix for 3,500 which is cheap for horse prices currently in my area and my dad is considering getting him/her for me if I can work off my board :)

Wise Dan is a cutie, I read about him in one of my blood horse magazines and I'm in love with him ever since.
He's won the Shadwell Turf Mile at Keeneland
His dam is Lisa Danielle and his sire is Wisemans Ferry
-
It's quite a shame that California Chrome was ruled out from the Royal Ascot tomorrow. I hope he gets better.
They found a bruise in his hoof that could lead into an abscess if it worsens.

blanketofroses Last post of Noble Bird I promise
-
I want to remind everyone of lasts years Racehorse death as well,
If you were watching the 140th running of the Derby last year you would know California Chrome won, but their was a black colt by the name of Dance With Fate who also ran that day.
After the derby, he was training one morning when his bridle slipped off while in full gallop, his jockey lost control of him and Dance With Fate ran into the rail, injuring his ankle. They had to euthanize him shortly after.
-
Danzig Moon was also in the Derby, but also the Preakness.
Both of these amazing horses will be missed dearly

blanketofroses Noble Bird is one we will be expecting to see in this years Breeders Cup
-
He sire is Grindstone and his Dam is Dear Birdie
He has raced in the Alysheba and placed 2nd
Yesterday my bet was for Hoppertunity to win and Lea to place second. But Noble Bird ran hard enough to beat them both at lasts night Downs after Dark.
-
As most of us have heard, Danzing Moon has suffered a major breakdown at the Queens Plate Trail at Woodbine, the colt pulled up under the jockey Julien Leparoux near the turn and then collided with the long shot R U Watchingbud.
He suffered a compound fracture in his right hind leg and was euthanized afterward.
RIP Danzing Moon

I ride western currently and there's a Ranch called Gaingo across from my farm. And my friends grandmother used to own it so I got a tour of it.
Now the current owner is selling it and my trainer is hoping to lease out the covered arena and..... THE TRACK.

There are two appendixes My friends own that I ride with and I may be getting an appendix as my first horse soon

blanketofroses Frosted is gorgeous
-
I'd love to see this horse Race again. He's always come from the back and I think he could be a real danger in other races against other horses
-
Sorry for not posting I've been riding horses all week and yesterday I was at a pool party.

I may be going to the breeders cup this year

blanketofroses "This is for the Sport." Those were Ahmed's exact words as he received The Belmont Stakes trophy and The rarely handed Triple Crown Trophy. -
|
I'm so proud of my boy, I never doubted him throughout his career in racing. He proved to them that he could Succeed throughout the Test of Champions and earn his title as a true champion. -
|
I figured there would be a lot of American Pharoah posts so why not a picture of yet another great horse that we seem to over look?
Frosted was 4th in the Derby and 2nd in the Belmont. I think he can go on to do great things in his racing career. -
|
"Good Things go to Good people." I said that out loud yesterday as I remembered the outburst Steve Coburn had last year after California Chrome lost to 3 amazing horses in the Belmont.
Victor Espinoza, Bob Baffert, American Pharoah himself, Ahmed Zayat, and Justin Zayat. Are all great people who deserved this Triple crown the most.

Frosted has been looking fantastic but I'm rooting for Pharoah all the way It makes me happy to think we may have a Triple Crown winner after 38 years.
