Just another example of how horses have evolved over thousands of years to be mysterious and stoic, never giving a hint of weakness to all the wolves and lions lurking outside their paddocks. :roll: :P
Bless Doc B. Glad that AD will race as a four-year-old.
I thought the same thing. I actually gasped when I saw the Sep 2 gastroscopy photo of Always Dreaming's stomach ulcers in that article. Can't even imagine how painful that must have been for him...unbelievable that he could even walk let alone run. And yes the team missed it. They ran him in the Travers on 8/26, just a week before that picture was taken. These prey animals are crazy good at showing no distress!

Yep, honneerider, and that's no joke. Forget stabling/training this guy at the track. He needs to spend most of his time at Fair Hill or some such training center in a quiet, pastoral setting...with soft music, flowers, and chirping birds. That poor boy!

I did too, especially the part about Irap having a fever. RIP, gone too soon.

I found from a Barbara Livingston tweet during my lunch break. It really saddens me; he was my favorite sophomore and I was really hoping he'd pull through and make it to stud.

Seems about right for Coolmore given he's a multiple G1 winner, at 2 and 3 and is a son of the hottest emerging sireline in North America with a very strong female family. I think if he were standing elsewhere he'd probably start at $25k.
