A Japanese family bought War Emblem (the horse that won the derby and I *think* the Belmont as well) for 17 million for the purpose of putting him out to stud, but it turns out that he's gay. I heard this on Czaban yesterday and I had to pass it on.

War Emblem won the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness. He finished eighth in his bid to win the Triple Crown at the Belmont Stakes.

And if a horse was gay (thought I highly doubt that is possible), it would not hinder his stud potential. They don't exactly do it the way you are envisioning.

It's sad to be a degenerate horse racing gambler and this is all the board can get for horse racing. I mean, nothing on Jorge Chavez beating the living piss out of some claimer to get up for a win; naturally the race after he pulls up on a favorite that I have a Pick 3 riding with. No mention of the beauty of the 3rd race from Aqueduct in mid February, when your betting on garbage jockeys because its something to do between races from Gulfstream. And, if this horse is gay, run the horse in Grade 1 races during the summer at Santa Anita and at Saratoga (or even the Meadowlands), where his presence could mean extra money bet on him in the race, thus providing better prices on the (better) horses he's competing against.

So... some asian dude spent 17 million on about 2lbs of glue. That seems like money well spent.

There was a blurb about this in Sports Illustrated this week (bottom of p24 in the April 7 issue). First off, the horse is not gay. Since he went to stud in mid-February he's only 'covered' (their word, not mine) 6 mares while most stallions can do at least 60 a month. The stud fee is estimated at between $66,000 and $75,000 so you can see why this is a big deal. Also, an equine behavioral specialist (now there's a major in college--I can only imagine how her parents reacted to that one) said this is not uncommon and that 5% of new stallions exhibit similar behavior.

I may not be hung like a horse, but it's nice to hear that I and a horse get's about as much play a month...

WHAT! It's a joke, come on...
