    Rachel, I just love that name!
    Does anyone know anything about the name? Does it have any significance?

    John had his first winner today at Belmont since the move. Race 7 with a WAR FRONT colt named Peace and Justice went wire to wire.

    I love Mentor Canes pedigree, look on his dams side
  • RachelRachel Member
    Yay he now has a Curlin filly/colt called Special Wish at Belmont. Ill post the photos later
  • candicandi Member
    Good luck john, and God blessed you.
  • Rachel, I didn't recognize many mares from his dam's side, but boy, there's plenty of good stuff on the masculine side.

    Just checked ....Special Wish is a filly...and one of my "clues" I look for is Ribot...he is there
  • RachelRachel Member
    howd you find that out? lol what does Ribot do in pedigrees?
  • carolinarkansascarolinarkansas hot springs, arkansasMember
    edited June 2013
    I looked her up on a pedigree site went 5 generations back.....Ribot was a very interesting stallion...European...Italian I think...16 wins 0 losses...I think...doing this from memory....after he retired to stud ...he first stood in England then he was to come to the US for 5 yrs....but he was beyond " difficult" and when time came to ship him him home no one would insure him for the he stayed here....he is by many considered the "strongest" thoroughbred ever...will check my details but I think this is the I like to see him somewhere as a strength/stamina influence....he is buried at Darby Dan
  • You ladies, who are not bettors, are pretty good at following the bloodlines of these great horses. I have to admit, as a bettor, the pedigree doesn't mean much after a horse has had a few stats.
