Re: The Gelding Thread -Rapper Dragon RIP

Postby MySaladDays » Sun May 07, 2017 3:47 pm

I feel absolutely sick over this. He was a GREAT HORSE! I was a huge fan. I set my alarm clock to get up in middle of the night many times to watch him.

"Rapper Dragon became the first horse to sweep the 4-year-old Championship Series in Hong Kong when he won the Hong Kong Derby in March, and he staked a claim Sunday (beginning of May in the Chairmans' Trophy, where he got his 4th win in a row) not just as the best 4-year-old in Hong Kong, but perhaps simply as the best horse in Hong Kong.

Now, less than a month later, in Champions Mile at Sha Tin Racecourse in Hong Kong:

Rapper Dragon, who swept the Hong Kong Triple Crown for 4-year-olds earlier this year, was pulled up midway through the race with a pelvis fracture, according to Hong Kong officials.


“Rapper Dragon suffered a severe fracture of his pelvis which, unfortunately, was coupled with serious complications,” Hong Kong veterinarian Christopher Riggs said in a statement.

“Despite our intensive care in the equine hospital, we were unable to save him.”

A great loss!
