Wish I hadn't said anything. Be Bullish won easily, a new millionaire, and was claimed back by Jacobson for DAS.

Not happy about this. I was hoping all along that Repole would retire him. Best thing Jacobson could do is send him to Old Friends - and everybody wins.
Be Bullish has done enough and has earned his retirement. Just my humble opinion...

That sucks. I actually thought Repole claimed him to retire him. He claimed him last out (9/21) FROM Jacobson and DAS, who apparently just took him right back.

Don't mean to be repetitive, that's just so frustrating to hear.

He's a millionaire now. I wonder if Repole wanted to get him there and then retire? He may claim him back... Here's hoping...

26k to 17k to $12,500 cause a 5th at Parx on 11/30 is inspiring cause WHY NOT.

From DRF Live yesterday:
David Grening, Aqueduct, Race 4 - DRF LIVE
Former owner claims, retires Socialsaul

The graded stakes-placed Socialsaul, who finished fourth in Friday’s fourth race at Aqueduct, was claimed for $10,000 by his original owner and will be retired.

Mike Samotowka, a surgeon based in Ohio, had trainer Mark Hennig claim Socialsaul for $10,000 on Friday. Hennig, who had purchased the horse on behalf of Samotowka for $35,000 at the 2010 Fasig Tipton Timonium 2-year-old-in-training sale, said the gelding would be shipped to In Front Training Center in Ghent, N.Y., on Saturday before a future home is found for the 6-year-old New York-bred gelding by Read the Footnotes.

“We had been talking about the horse; he had a lot of success with him and he just wanted to do the right thing by the horse and get him off the track before anything happened to him,” said Hennig, who did not train the horse during his racing career.

Samotowka had raced Socialsaul with trainer Gary Contessa for his first 20 starts. In that span, Socialsaul won the 2011 New York Derby at Finger Lakes and finished second in the Grade 3 Discovery at Aqueduct. He earned $157,295 for Samotowka before he was claimed for $62,500 by Drawing Away Stable and trainer David Jacobson in May 2013.

Socialsaul was claimed six subsequent times, most recently for $16,000 by Jacobson and Bruce Golden on Sept. 1 at Saratoga. Socialsaul raced eight times since Oct. 19, and Friday was his fourth start in 27 days. He had won five of his previous seven starts before Friday.

Socialsaul retires with a record of 11 wins, 8 seconds and 3 thirds from 40 starts. He earned $514,375.

“He was good to Mike and Mike wanted to be good to him,” Hennig said.


Jacobson claimed him 9/1, then ran him on 10/19, 10/31, 11/10, 11/19, 11/30, 12/7, 12/14, and 12/26. I guess his original owner just couldn't take it anymore. Hope he has a happy retirement :D
