ERTIJAAL (AUS) - G1 winner, 5yo horse by Hard Spun, broke down in the G1 Jebel Hatta Stakes at Meydan on 3/4/2017, and was euthanized.

There were 2 horses named ERTIJAAL, both racing in graded stakes at Meydan this year. The other ERTIJAAL is from IRE and is by Oasis Dream. ERTIJAAL(IRE) is still racing.

Interesting links. He sounds like quite a handful. Here's one of the quotes:

"He fractured his skull on the way to trials 10 or 11 months ago and had about 40 or 50-odd staples and stitches put in his head."

Found a replay of Gatting's race: He was dead last for most of the race and had to circle the field coming off the turn. Click on the right facing arrow at the end of the row on the chart and a box will pop up with the replay (yellow silks w/red cap): http://www.rwwa.com.au/cris/horse.aspx? ... 569&max=50

He is Hard Spun's 59th stakes winner.

On Sunday Big John B and Hard Aces are both entered in the Tokyo City Cup at 1 1/2 miles at Santa Anita. Big John B won the race last year before being off for nearly a year. Too bad they both can't win!

I was hoping for a 1-2 finish and they did it! I don't think Big John is quite up to speed yet, anyway. He was off for nearly a year and this was just his second race back. So glad for Hard Aces, though. He always tries hard.
