Questions / Fitness Problem?
« on: November 29, 2009, 07:54:30 pm »
I notice in the last week all my horse's fitness levels dropped to D's and F's.  Is anyone else having this problem?

General/Questions / Breeders Cup Qualifier Question
« on: August 31, 2009, 05:35:28 pm »
Are only nominated horses on that list?  Because I was thinking about entering Screamingtothemax in the BC SC Sprint, and he is not on the list.  I have not nominated him yet, because I want to make sure he is quailfied first.  He hasn't been run in any BC quailfier races, but he has a G2 place, and 2 Ungr. places, and Ungr. show, and and Ungr. Win.

General/Questions / Is this horse good enough for the BC?
« on: August 31, 2009, 05:13:52 pm »
I was just wondering if anyone thinks this horse is good enough for the Breeders Cup Steeplechase Sprint?  He has placed in 1 Grade 2 stakes race, and placed in an Ungraded Stakes race.  He has also won an Ungraded stakes race (with an SF of 229!), and showed in another Ungraded Stakes race.

Ch. Screamingtothemax

Here is his complete list of races this year:

2/11 - 7.5f SC Allow - 3rd with SF of 191
3/7 - 13f SC NW3 Allow - 1st with SF of 111
4/11 - 8.0f SC Ungr. Stakes - 2nd with SF of 170
5/2  - 7.5f SC Ungr. Stakes - 4th with SF of 190
5/27 - 14.5f SC Allow - 7th with SF of 0 (he doesn't like long distances, but it was the only race available)
7/8 - 7.0f SC G2 Stakes - 2nd with SF of 176
7/29 - 7.0f SC Allow - 2nd with SF of 150
8/26 - 7.0f SC Ungr. Stakes - 1st with SF of 229

So... what do you think?  It is $180,000 for the nomination, and I don't know if I want to spend that much.

This is my new 7 week old border collie.  I'm thinking or either naming her Skye or Tia.  What do you think?

When she gets older I want to train her in agility and rally obedience and compete together.   ;D

General/Questions / Retiring For Broodmare
« on: March 22, 2009, 06:52:08 pm »
My horse, Caboodles, was starting to race poorly so I made her a Broodmare.  It now says retired on her page, instead of broodmare and I can't breed her.  I'm positive I set her as broodmare, not retired.  Is this a glitch or will it take a day before she can be bred after being set as broodmare?  Please help.

General/Questions / Stillborn Question
« on: March 03, 2009, 02:04:03 am »
I just had my first foal in my stable and it was a stillborn.  I was just wondering what the odds of having a stillborn are.

Questions / Resting Question
« on: November 22, 2008, 07:06:43 pm »
Last year someone suggested to me that about once a year I should give my horse a month or 2 rest (at home).  Does anyone else do this?  I was just wondering because my horses have raced around 8 times this year and I was wondering if I should give them a break.  My two horses I'm trying to decide if I should give them a rest is Goodnightandgoodluck and Screamingtothemax.  They still seem to be running well though.  Should I wait until they have raced about 12 races and then give them a long rest?  What do you think?

And one more question... how do you make a link saying the horse's name so when you click on it, you go to the horses page (I tried using the insert hyperlink button, but I didn't do it right).

Questions / Jockey Question
« on: August 14, 2008, 05:37:48 pm »
I have always used the jockey K Berry for my horse, Screamingtothemax.  Recently, I can't pick him as a jockey to use, or any other Veteran jockeys, which I could use before.  I can only use Apprentice jockeys now.  Why?

Also - I just switched Screamingtothemax to steeplechase.  Could this be why?  There are no Veteran steeplechase jockeys?

General/Questions / Starting Horse Over.... Training Suggestions??
« on: October 28, 2007, 07:02:37 pm »
I over raced Screamingtothemax in the beginning of his career because he was my starter horse and I didn't know yet how to play.  His last race was 10/10 so I'm letting him rest until 12/10.  Then a few days after that I'm starting his training.  Any suggestions on his training?  I'm going to aim for 6-9 furlong races.  Also, I have another question... how do you figure out which tack is best for the horse?

General/Questions / Two Questions
« on: October 11, 2007, 03:07:11 am »
I have two questions.  1. What is dead heat?  2.  My horse hasn't been doing that good lately.  Am I doing anything wrong?  He did ok in his last race but the ones before that were terrible.  His name is Screamingtothemax.  (So you can look at him)
