Nice to see Admire Don (by Timber Country), best known for his exploits on the dirt track, leave behind a good son after being exported to Korea. And you're right; he certainly has a pedigree loaded with stamina. And like many others I too am a fan of his unusual facial markings.

Group One-winning Japanese three-year-old Kiseki is under a cloud for Sunday’s HK$18 million Longines Hong Kong Vase, and causing a behind-the-scenes rift between the Jockey Club and the Japan Racing Association after arriving with symptoms of ringworm, a highly contagious fungal infection.

That's not cool. :shock:
It's ironic that Hong Kong, which drew the disapproval of Australian health officials by creating that mainland China training center, has had an infected horse come in from Japan.
IMHO, this incident provides proof that stringent health protocols and quarantines are important for every country.
