  • Thanks for calling this to my attention QueenZFan22 and BetsyB. Sounds like he is in good hands now and is doing pretty well. We'll have to watch to see what races he gets into and how he does in them. Fingers crossed. :)

    A whole lot of urging that he didnt appear to like in that stretch run.

    I like that they ran him on the actual training track. Wish they would do this more often. It's less traffic for the main track. We always see videos of them training on the main track.

    Lifeline ran this past Friday, at Golden Gate Field in an $8,000 claiming race. He finished 5th of six and was not claimed. I suspect (maybe hope) he's going to be moved off-track soon. He's raced in claiming ranks six times since last July and his best result was a 3rd on Aug. 4.

    Lifeline (6 year old gelding, Tapit-Life is Sweet) is entered in Race 4 Saturday, post time 2:22 p.m., at Golden Gate Fields. It's a $6,250 claiming race for 3-year-olds and up, over 1 1/16-mile on turf. Purse $13,000. He appears to be the morning-line favorite at 9-5 but still ... he's available for only $6,250. I'm hoping he lands with someone willing to take him off track. He hasn't won since January 2018, and past four races has finished 5th, 6th, 4th and 8th. But he was so handsome in his day and I remember when he was running as a colt with Z Princess.

    Lifeline (6-year-old gray gelding, Tapit-Life is Sweet) finished first by a half-length Saturday in Race 4 over 1 1/16-mile on turf at Golden Gate Fields. It was a $6,250 claiming race for 3-year-olds and up. He was the even-money favorite. It does not look like he was claimed.

    I don’t know I mean he’s a gelding, so there is no breeding option, and he mainly wins claiming races 24k sounds about right to me.

    I saw, which means that they had a reserve on him, which wasn’t met. He would have sold for 24k without the reserve. To me with him being a gelding and his race record 24k is even a bit high
