My wife and I would like to know if you have any updates on The Pamplemousse? We really liked him and were wondering if he was going to return to racing any time soon.

Anonymous, I spoke to Alex Solis Jr. at Del Mar recently and he said The Pamplemousse is doing well. They are still planning to send him up north for the winter in the snow, which is supposed to be very good for tendons. I will keep you posted on this blog when I get more information. Thanks for reading! Mary

I would like to talk with you about a product for your horses it will keep them calmer, and they will come back from injury much quicker.
It has to do with releaseing there adult stem cells.

Amazing product for humans, horses and dogs + more.

Did you hear about Quality Road's meltdown in the airplane?
He was removed after he tore it up. Still at SA.
He was supposed to go back to NY.
Think he needs his old trainer back?
Have you ever seen an Assmussen horse act that way in the gate?
T.Pletcher now has the dubious distinction of have had the only horse ever to be a gate scratch at the BC, plus having had one break down (Fleet Indian).

Frank Panucci said...

I don't think Assmussen could help, Pletcher is still the better trainer, horse is a head case and I think will head to retirement.

Hi Mary,
I'm working on a research project correlating racehorse breeding with injuries incurred while racing and was wondering what, other than an injury, would cause a horse to be eased in the stretch.

“Her gallops have been very strong,” said Asmussen, who trains
Rachel Alexandra for owners Jess Jackson and Harold McCormick.
“She’s not 100% fit for this and we’re aware of that. She’s had six works
in six months. But she’s a very physical horse; she is Rachel.”

Are u kidding me I am thinking to myself, why would he say this in public???? First off RA is an amazing horse it is just that Zenyatta is the Greatest EVER, second off don't make public excuses in advance...sigh....miss your videos :) xoxoxo from Maine

Mary great site,
How unfortunate that the creeps who set up the gossip site "turf trash talk" use your site to promote theirs! Check out the comment on Feb 26th 2010!

Owners are so dumb !

This season, Louis Vuiton aswell appear abounding accoutrements for man. The Nomade covering is carefully arresting with the LV brand on the characteristic aureate assumption columnist lock closure. Calf covering and bolt lining are aswell locations of this affected bag. And this business portfolio is absolutely not a white elephant.

Hello, Mary.

I was wondering very recently about blog coverage of the California racing scene, glad to find you. I'm up in Northern CA with two retired racehorses in the family.

Are you involved at all, or do you have any interest in, helping to promote these smart, beautiful athletes as they transition to other careers off the track? It is a subject near and dear to my heart, as you might guess.

You can find me at my blog by clicking on my name below. Thanks!

Hello Mary

My name is Dennis Jackson, yesterday was Christmas Eve a very happy day for my family and I. while I was waiting for my daughters
to arrive I was watching TVG and saw that Henry Moreno, my friend,
second father and mentor had passed away. My day turned into sadness as I had not known of his passing. I have known Henry for
45 years and even though the last 10 we haven't talked much it was
nice knowing I could just pick up the phone and he would be there.
I feel that part of my youth has gone with his passing. I have looked
all over trying to fine something about his passing to no avail. My heart
goes out to his girls and family.

Dennis, our Henry Moreno did not pass away! It was another Henry Moreno who used to be a jockey years ago. TVG made a huge mistake and put up the wrong photo. Merry Christmas. Mary

Mary, thank you so much for letting me know. I wonder when TVG will
correct that. I will be calling Henry soon. Merry Christmas to you too.
