Corrections and Clarifications
Category: Member Blogs

Closing in on five months of publishing almost seventy pages of articles on the Bits N’ Bunny blog, I have received an overwhelming positive response from fellow horseracing enthusiasts.

Thank you all for taking time out of your busy lives to read my articles and share your experiences and knowledge with me.

I have taken great effort to keep my facts accurate and always strive to publish credible information that others, like me, would like to know.

It has been brought to my attention by a few helpful readers that I have published some inaccurate information.  I would like to offer my apologies and corrections.

Shackelford Wins Preakness 136

Published on:  May 23, 2011

I stated:  “Not only is his dam, Shared Interest, a GI winner, but she is also a GI winning producer aside from Forestry, being the dam of Cash Run, who won the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies, and also went on to be a Graded Stakes producer.”

Clarification:  Shared Interest is a G1 winning producer and Cash Run is a Graded Stakes producer.  Cash Run, dam of Great War Eagle who placed in the Aussie Rules E.B.F Tetrarch Stakes(G3) and Ballycorus Stakes(G3).  A reader remarked that Cash Run was not a Graded Stakes producer because Great War Eagle never won a Graded Stakes.  I felt I accurately interpreted this information because I learned that a Graded Stakes producer is a broodmare who foals a horse who competes in a Graded Stakes race. If this is an inaccurate way to state these facts, I would appreciate someone to explain the correct way to make this statement, as to not repeat my error.

 

Belmont Stakes:  Part Two:  Real Quiet

Published on:  May 30, 2011

 http://bitsnbunny.blogspot.com/2011/05/belmont-stakes-real-quiet.html 

I stated:  “Dr. Fager is inbred to La Troienne(FR), his dam, Aspidistra, being out of Tilly Rose, whose great-grandsire is Teddy(FR) – the sire of La Toienne(FR).  Rough’N Tumble, the sire of Dr. Fager, is out of a mare by Bull Dog, another son of Teddy(FR).”

Correction:  Dr. Fager is closely related to La Troienne(FR) via Teddy(FR).  Not inbred.

Belmont Stakes:  Part Five:  Conquistador Cielo

Publish on:  June 6, 2011

 http://bitsnbunny.blogspot.com/2011/06/belmont-stakes-conquistador-cielo.html

I stated:  “Mr. Prospector’s greatest offspring include Gone West, Breeders’ Cup Sprint winner, Gulch; Forty-Niner, 1991 Kentucky Derby winner, Seeking The Gold….”

Correction:  Strike The Gold won the 1991 Kentucky Derby.  (I commonly get them confused. My bad.)

Please don’t hesitate to let me know when I go astray.  I will be correcting my articles soon.

Once again, my heartwarming thanks go out to all who read Bits N’ Bunny.  I will work my hardest to publish the most accurate information possible.
