  1. Just listened to some handicapping on bloodhorse; choices were by one
    Beholder and Gleneagles- the handicapper said Gleneagles had to have a race
    before the classic and did not run badly; he is very talented, as he is by Galieo, did not
    mention his damsire as Stormcat and think he has a good chance. They said AP is the horse to beat, but he has not won against older horses, which is the big question.

    Love the article about Beholde and how Hughes talks about her and how he has been pressured to not sell her and how he will race her next year and how Mandella has spoiled her; round pen; ear muffs; gallop once around so she does not get upset!!!
    What a great BC

    Don’t forget the grey goose and pink lemondade for the Zenyatta Cocktail !!!

  2. Dear Kathy.Beautiful devotional.The leaves are falling over here now and the countryside is magnificent at this time of year.Sadly,it’s been wet in Wales this morning and there was a deluge at Cheltenham just now.Yes,the jumps are back woo-hoo!The Princess Royal stand looks lovely.It’s very strange not to see our AP though.We’ve got a lot of races today and a flying dismount from Frankie.
    Mr Fibbs was very wise not to report on the weather from Mexico!It didn’t turn out quite as bad as was forecast I heard but expecting mudslides and flooding.Simonetta has gone the Heaben yesterday I think.I forgot to mention yesterday the 2 million rats live in NYC!That’s where the pizza rat lives.Fubu is doing well again he was getting into trouble while mum was doing her shopping and he’s getting ready for Halloween.Bear’s family have a Tennessee walking horse I saw a video about the training of these horses and it’s brutal!Very sad.I loved hearing about Zoe’s visit to Mr Al.I loved Cary Grant too especially in light comedy he was sooo natural.The years have brought much wisdom to Mr Al.Have a great Saturday.Love and hugs to you,Kisses for Holly,Nikko and Sugar.SheenaXOXO Gizmo is parading today at a show in East Anglia hoping for a video.

    1. Dear Sheena,
      NYC has alway had millions of rats, a very dirty city; trash all over the street a great breeding ground for them. Especially in chinatown; they throw all of their vegetable
      trash on the sides of the street. Way to many people in such a small space.
      Love and hugs

      1. I don’t know when you were last in New York City, but it sounds like it was the 1970’s, a rough time in most American cities. We’re one of the cleanest cities in the US now and have a huge tourist population who enjoy biking all over the place, a gorgeous park with many cultural activities, and pedestrian malls that attract New Yorkers as well as non-residents. Your characterizing New York as a vast pigpen is not appreciated, not is it real.

  3. Surprise winner of the Racing Post Trophy Marcel wins for Peter Chapple-Hyam with Andrea Atzeni on board! Foundation and Frankie had a nightmare of a race boxed in by the Coolmore runners!Sheena.

  4. Dear Sheena,

    I currently getting psyched up for my Pilates. Will feel like a truck ran over me afterwards, probably. But it does keep me moving! lol Enjoy all the racing today. Fibbs was smart to stay away from Mexico. RIP Simonetta. Oh, NYC. I do know there is a rat problem there. Glad Fubu is better. I had no idea Tennessee walking horses’ training was brutal. So sad. Yes, the Mr. Al stories are always fabulous. I was hoping we would hear about his response to Zoe’s Cutest Dog contest win. I wish you a great Saturday, too. Love and hugs from me, kisses from Holly, Nikko and Sugar. Kathy XOXO

  5. Dear Kathy.I posted a video of the Tennessee walking horses on my timeline.Enjoy your pilates!!!!Better still sit down like me.Hugs Sheena

    1. Dear Sheena,

      Thanks, I will look that up.

      Hugs, Kathy

  6. Hi there everyone!

    Zenny — you are looking fabulous! And VERY pregnant. Clearly, this is going to be another big baby, just as Z Princess was as I recall! So keep enjoying the beautiful fall weather Big Girl.

    I always look forward to BC week because of the Zenyatta Celebrations! But my it’s going to be tough watching the BC Classic because I really love them all. The best result for me would be a American Pharoah/Beholder/Honor Code dead heat. I have to say though that I’d like The Pharoah to go out a winner!

    I’m going to be rooting for Rachel’s Valentina for sure in the Juvenile Fillies. I’m just so pleased that Rachel’s small family of two have both met with success on-track. (I never bought into the Rachel vs Zenny nonsense!)

    And, of course, I do love seeing the British & Euro horses. A treat it will be to see the likes of Golden Horn!!!!!

    Now….if I can just find a way to get BC coverage on my TV or online! (I can’t get TVG or Twinspires — they’re only for USA subscribers) and I don’t get NBC-SN. I’m still hoping HRTV will carry everything live now that they’re owned by TVG.)

    Love to all! GREAT to see a post from Brenda S !!!!!

  7. Huge Congratulations to VooDoo Storm and Maggie Moss. Just loved her comments about the older Geldings. My Gelding was my favorite horse too.
    Sounds like a really great weekend at the Kentucky Horse Park. Hunters, Quarter Horses. Sounds like its all there this weekend.

    1. Her comments were just a passionate talk about her appreciation for the older geldins and how they tried so hard. Nice Comments.

  8. Dear Tizgood. When was it that you said Simon Bray was going to be in the Studio at TVG? Want to be sure I don’t miss him.

  9. Hope all of our Horse friends at the Kentucky Horse Park are doing well. Go For Gin, Funny Cide hope you are all Behaving yourselves…………………………
    Think about all of you often. Sure miss John Henry and Cigar.

    1. Dear Peggy,
      The older geldings are the best, they have so much experience, are so wise and
      not hormonal. Saw Elliott Walden on TVG and they showed the stallion barn and of course Tiznow had his head sticking out; can not miss that gorgeous white blaze, he has his nose in everyones business, too funny.
      Love and hugs

  10. Dear Sheena:

    Sending healing prayers for William FITH. Goodnight. Love and Hugs, JB, LM, PC, HT, Cap, Herc, Frank, Bentley and all the Sweeties

  11. Dear Z, COZ, ZI and Montey:
