  • Was Unpalatable's mouth bleeding in the closing shot? She was fighting Johnny V for her head hard early on.

    A.P. gets another G1 winner!!
  • What a fantastic final crop for AP Indy! Only 36 named foals and he managed multiple G1 winner Honor Code, newly minted G1 winner Got Lucky, multiple GSW Commissioner, multiple GSP America, GSP Arethusa, GSP Divided Attention, and multiple SW Tacticus (RIP). Pretty incredible!

    This is pretty funny. Is it a Freudian slip? Are you saying that the bit was "unpalatable"? Her name is Untapable. : )

    Maybe a cell phone autocorrect? But it is humorous. :)
  • How Got Lucky got her name is kinda amusing, too. It took more than one trip to the breeding shed before A P Indy --- well --- fired more than blanks. On the fifth try they "Got Lucky" and got their AP Indy foal. The mare, Malka certainly showed "patience" and the owners were obviously "determined" --- those would have been good names, too!
  • That's funny, too, bleubetty. Great name. hahaha
  • They thought it was a good tribute to Malka's dam, Get Lucky, as well ;-)
  • Is Got Lucky Malka's last foal? They said she died from a rare form of cancer.

    Not quite, she had one more after Got Lucky, a filly by Smart Strike named Lucky Number. It is really tragic about Malka, she was only 9 when she passed and comes from such a great blue hen family. Hopefully her girls can pick up where she left off. Nice article about Got Lucky and family:

  • "She was born and raised on the farm," Sikura said. "We bred (the mare) to A.P. Indy, I think, five times in his last year and this is how she got the name. My partner Phil said, 'Do you think we should quit?' And I said, 'No, we'll go to the end. We've gone this far, we'll take our chances.'

    "The mare died of a very rare cancer, so it's a great reward to have a filly like this from the last crop of a great stallion and a really good family we raised."

    Hope Got Lucky runs in the BC Distaff. With Beholder running in the Classic, it should be Untapable's race to win if she has a good day. I do think she ran better with Rosie up but if she listens to Johnny V she could run a big race. If not, I would love to see one of AP Indy's last crop fillies take it at the wire!
  • PICASSO LIVES AT LANE’S END: A. P. INDY‏
    Ireland has her Galileo, but almost a decade before he came along, A.P. Indy was born. His courage on the track dazzled us. And his contribution to the development of the North American thoroughbred has been beyond brilliant.
    This article is dedicated to one of A.P.’s greatest fans, Sue F., and to Louise H. and the wonderful folks at Lane’s End. And, of course, to The Great One himself.

    We need other sidelines for outcrosses.:(
  • They're out there, the Indys are simply what's doing the best. There will ALWAYS be a dominant line. IMO significantly better than when the Storm Cats were leading . . . Sounder lines in general.

    And Uncle Mo is a complete outcross.
  • KMMKMM Member
    We still need more outcrosses for breed soundness. Uncle Mo is not enough.
  • That ship sailed with the Dancers.

    Children of Secretariat: extraordinary daughter who left a major legacy
    Patricia McQueen Thoroughbrd Racing May 16, 2016
    As part of this occasional series, Patricia McQueen examines the career of a mare who guaranteed Secretariat would have a major influence on the breed - and whose offspring included Preakness winner Summer Squall and supersire A.P. Indy.
    Secretariat may have sired only one American classic winner – Risen Star – but through his amazing daughters he has had a much more pronounced impact on the Triple Crown races.
    The stakes-winning filly Weekend Surprise, an earner of $402,892 in 31 starts, produced not just one but two classic winners, earning her the prestigious Kentucky Broodmare of the Year award in 1992.
    https://www.thoroughbredracing.com/articles/children-secretariat-extraordinary-daughter-who-left-major-legacy
    From article:
    Weekend Surprise was said to carry a gene for a large heart, passed through both from Secretariat, who had an unusually large heart, and from her dam as well.
    This so-called “X-factor” was extensively studied by author Marianna Haun, who passed away in February. Haun was convinced that the large heart gene is passed along female lines on the X chromosome and could be traced back for generations.
