Verrazano on the Kentucky Derby trail

Let's Go Racing Stables, managed by Bryan Sullivan and Kevin Scatuorchio, have found themselves a 'live one' in the shape of the undefeated three year old Verrazano, who looked ultra impressive in drawing off to win by 16 1/2 lengths at Gulfstream Park in allowance company. A son of More Than Ready, a stallion raced by Kevin' father Jim to a fourth place finish in the Kentucky Derby, Verrazano has more of his broodmare sire about him being a larger horse that should genuinely appreciate the mile and a quarter of the Kentucky Derby. Verrazano was one of the first yearlings that we tested using the Sales Select product at the yearling sales. #Verrazano #Pedigree

Great new book on Equine Genomics

Bhanu Chowdhary, a Professor of Veterinary Anatomy and Public Health at Texas A & M University and collaborator on the Equine Genome project has edited what looks to be an authoritative guide on the present status and future applications of genomic research on the equine breed. The book looks to represent a global view of the subject. You can pre-order a copy (it is due out March 11th), by clicking here #BhanuChowdhary
