WTF are they thinking?
I ran marathons. I saw the Taj Mahal by Moonlight. I drove Highway 1 in a convertible. I petted Zenyatta.

He raced in December, finishing 6 of 7. I know that the Wertheimers no longer own him, but they have more than enough resources to buy him back and send him to Old Friends or a retirement facility. Hopefully someone steps up, since his current connections don't look willing to.

A screaming example of why it is so hard to continue to support Thoroughbred racing for so many people. If I only had the money...instead there's only tears that stay inside because shedding them won't solve anything.

Has there been an interview with the connections, any clues as to the other side of the story?
I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

Replying to @ThorobredInfo @BreedersCup
Owner/trainer @Acacia_Racing please do the right thing. Maybe @donnakeen might have some answers as to what happened with his stud career ending or know how to contact current/past connections since Silentio stood at Keen Farms.

All but one mare that he bred was confirmed in foal. His stallion career ended due to non payment. Not one cent the whole time he was standing. I had to threaten to have a sheriff's sale to get paid and have him moved to another breeding farm.

People who sent him mares weren't paying? Or Acacia Racing wasn't paying Keen Farms board/fees?

"have him moved to another breeding farm" implies Acacia wasn't paying their bills. Scumbags.
