  1. Strange there are no comments or even a heads up from Coz’s connections that Coz was entered for his third race and after the good performance, nothing still. They have apparently decided to change the normal dissemination of info on this site. However, I am grateful that information on his entry was posted here, and that I did not miss seeing him run again.

    1. Yes,we don’t seem to get much news these days.Hope all is well with Zenyatta and her filly.Hugs

  2. Wow! Now that’s a race horse. I know everybody has a theory, but perhaps Coz is just a late bloomer and needed to get over the “terrible twos” At any rate after only two races and over a year off, he did exactly what I hoped he would. He broke well, didn’t throw and tantrums and looked like he was really into it. All things considered, I think he did very well and I for one am looking forward to his next race. Please keep him on the turf.

  3. Lane’s End have announced today that City Zip has been euthanized at the age of 19 due to chronic foot problems.He was well received when he transferred to Lane’s End in 2005.He was primarily seen as a sprint sire.RIP.

    There were many tears shed as Hawkeyethenoo left Jim Goldie’stable.He has a lovely new home on the borders.Wishing the son of Hawk Wing a long and happy retirement.

    1. Dear Sheena:

      Oh, sad news indeed. Loved this boy. Run free in God’s Heaven.

      Goodnight. Love and Hugs, JB, LM, PC, HT, Cap, Herc, Frank, Bentley and all the Sweeties

      1. Happy, healthy retirement Hawkeye. Love and Hugs, JB

    2. Sad news indeed. RIP City Zip. Run free and happy, dear one.

      Good luck and long happy healthy life, Hawkeyethenoo!

      Hugs and Love

    3. So sad to hear about City Zip. I remember when he raced here in NY. RIP, City Zip.

  4. Dear Mama Z, COZ, ZI, BBG and DC:

    Goodnight and Happy Dreams. Love You. Hugs, JB

    Z Princess, Dubai, Baby Z, will always love you

  5. Hi Judy Berube. Thanks for your post re Coz reacting to the chearing grandstand, Victor was using the whip right handed. To the inexperienced runners, the roar of a grandstand grabs their attention and can distract them momentarily. Can’t wait to see how he does next time.

    1. Dear Rosemary:

      Actually, VE used both the right and left hand whip. This is a still photo from the race replay of COZ ready to make a move to the outside. The photo is blurry, but if you look closely, VE has his right hand on the reins and probably some of COZ’s mane and his left arm is raised up, whip in hand.

      In any event, COZZIE really showed interest and a strong finish. You’re right, more distance wouldn’t hurt. I think if he could have gotten through on the rail, he would’ve won. Love and Hugs, JB

      1. Those darn roadblocks. Great seeing Coz shift gears and still able to pour on the coals. Smart boy!
        Biscuits, send that boy an order w/ plenty of molasses. Maybe Mr. John treated him to a brew…one that Mom liked.
        The Haskell…….oh boy!!!!

        1. My Dear Ann:

          Oh, that’s what was so impressive. He made that move just like Mama. My God, wouldn’t that be something if he headed for the Haskell. That boy deserves a brew and a biscuit. Love and Hugs, JB

        2. Coz is 5. The Haskell is for 3 year olds with winning credentials. Gormley is the more likely candidate. Where is Gormley these days?

        3. Dear Max and Ann:

          Max, you are so right; forgot Haskell was for 3 year olds only. Well, hopefully JS will find another spot for COZ in August. Can’t wait to cheer him on.

          Couldn’t find any recent news on Gormley. May be having some well deserved R & R. Might see him racing soon. Love and Hugs, JB

  6. Woo Hoo !!! Wasn’t Cozzie magnificent?? He looked so coll and calm before the race, gazing around just like Mama. Seemed to be perfectly calm in the gate, and just all in to the whole experience. All thanks to John;s marvelous patience—SO impressive. The whole team must be absolutely ecstatic !!

    When he made his move, I began sobbing and kept saying “good boy, good boy”–I think my cats thought I was crazy, but they are, I think, getting used to my crying when my favorites are running !!

    Will tell Barnaby all about the race when I go down on Saturday. Boss Mare Sue went down with another friend to ride today. Since Barnaby and Traveller cannot stand to be out of sight of each other, Barnaby stays tied up to the hitching rail at the saddling area of the indoor arena, while she rides Traveller. He is perfectly happy to stand there quietly for as long as they are working, as long as he can watch them. Too cute !!

    Zenny, maybe your Ann will show you a race replay on the iPad next time she visits– if she does, you will be very proud of your beautiful son–he was just stunning !! You and the wee one sleep tight tonight and have sweet dreams— kisses on the wind to you both !!

    1. Dear Sue:

      COZ was great and he looked just magnificent. Love and Hugs to you, Boss Sue, Barnaby and Traveler. JB

    2. Hi Sue Noel,

      Great to see a post from you! Best wishes to Barnaby and Traveller — to you and the kitty cats, too. :-)

      Hugs and Love

  7.

      Hope Blue turns up. RIP Mr. Stubbs. Hope Chrome is OK and has a safe trip home in the Fall. Love and Hugs, JB

  8. Does anyone know if TVG has gone off the cable system? It’s vanished from my lineup. Have gotten several different answers from my cable company. but tonight the rep said it was on no cable anymore. Do know that Paul and Greg are on the NYRA cirquit now. I’ll keep checking.

    1. Peggy,
      It varies with the provider – some carry it – some don’t – it seems like they can drop a station with absolutely no notice. I have DirecTV and it’s still on there.

      1. Dear Sandy and Marshall, Thanks so much for the info. Just might have to change and get a provider that carries it.

    2. Dear Peggy,

      I have Time Warner, now “Spectrum”, and have never had TVG. At the store where I used to work, we had DirecTV so I could watch horse racing during slow times — another reason I miss my job! :-)
      Hope you get it sorted out.

      Hugs and Love

    3. Peggy, when I was shopping for cable providers, I specifically asked each one if they carried TVG. Several told me they didn’t but were trying to enter into a contract to carry it and wouldn’t have it worked out for 6 months to a year. I wasn’t willing to wait for it so I shopped around and I found one that would provide it, but I had to pay extra to add the sports package to my lineup, which worked out well since it included access to NBA games. Ask your provider if you will get TVG if you add a sports package. Good luck.

    1. Thanks Judy! That’s our boy! ♥♥♥♥♥

    2. Dear Judy.

      Thank you, he is so handsome…Like his Mom !!
      Love and hugs Ingrid.

      1. Dear Sandy and Ingrid:

        Such a stunning boy. Love and Hugs, JB

    3. Max, thanks for the link to the Queen’ story and looking forward to the DVD.

  12. Happy Birthday Carol and many many more.

  13. Dear Judy and Max. A horse that has come to my attention lately, (Judy, I know you know How i’m always reading on all the great horses) well i’ve been thinking about Miss Temple City. I went in to Spendthrift to read about her sire. Temple City. He is just gorgeous and Max he is by Dynaformer. I know you probably knew that. He is just spectacular. Now he’s another one I would like to go visit. I wonder what his demeanor is like. Hope its a little better than Dad’s. LOL But still love those high spirited horses.

    1. Dear Peggy, Max and Z Fans:

      Wasn’t familiar with this son of Dynaformer; out of a daughter of Danzig, Curriculum. Checked his chart and it’s quite impressive. Fifteen starts: 4 wins, 2 seconds, 4 thirds and earnings of $326K. He’s 12 years old now. Hope you get to visit him at Spendthrift. He’s got some “spirit” on both sides. Love and Hugs, JB

  14. “Zenyatta, ‘Queen of Racing'” Has Premiere Saturday at Del Mar
