    Why risk the people? AI is safer for the handlers because they only associate one area with the task and it can make them easier to handle around mares. They don't associate the mares with breeding.

    I do agree that the Jockey club won't change any time soon. This mare won't be more then a blip on the radar screen. That's in part because I don't see the mares being valued as much as the stallions. Its only been in the last few years that we have heard about great mares. The same is somewhat true of geldings, really it is Cigar representing the seedless grapes club.

    You still have to lead that stallion into the breeding shed to be collected. The danger is the same to any handler with live cover or AI.
    Those mares are restrained and very little danger to any stallion when you are dealing with a multimillion dollar stallion.
    There have always been great fillies and mares in TB racing. Not just recently. Shalom

    They are ensuring that the horse being registered is infact the offspring of the alleged sire and dam. It is not as simple as just having a foal and it turning into a racehorse. You have foal sales, yearling sales, breezers and then the value of the stallion can be increased greatly when the progeny do well on the track. When a horse is entered in a sale, the buyer needs to know that it is infact out of Stallion A and not some backyard stud with his legs on backwards.

    Just happened to catch an update on Facebook and thought I'd share for anyone still interested. To sum up, sounds like Rachel is still recovering well from the original abdominal problems, but abscessed "adjacent to her reproductive tract" and had to have it drained:

    Poor girl. I really do hope she pulls through.

    Thanks for the update. Rachel is doing well after having the area drained and Rood/Riddle is taking amazing care of her. We are close to the Jackson's and the report is positive from their end at this time.
