I ran marathons. I saw the Taj Mahal by Moonlight. I drove Highway 1 in a convertible. I petted Zenyatta.

He has an interesting pedigree but nothing very fashionable or active atm overall I think, and he was an out at the Keenland Nov sale (as a stallion prospect). I think they'd had better sell him to an equestrian for a second career but, I genuinely hope he'll remain sound.

Didn't they do something similar with Square Eddie? I think he retired with a suspensory injury also but then brought back to race (too late in the day to do the research). We do have stallions with no better qualifications standing in small regional markets. But yeah, I hope it works out well for him. If you believe what Doug O'Neill told Jeremy Balan, he had some options.

Grade 1 Winner Ralis Returns to Training
O'Neill said there were offers to stand Ralis as a stallion, and owner Paul Reddam even considered standing him at stud himself at Ocean Breeze Ranch (also Square Eddie's current home), but the decision was made to wait on a potential breeding career.

Does this ever work out where the horse comes back the same or better? Wasn’t this horse just running over his
head before he retired?

The Truth or Else, who was 6 years old, collapsed and died after The Kentucky Cup-- he earned over 600,000 dollars and I am very sad he is gone without barely any acknowledgment of his unfortunate death.

Hoppertunity is not going to Dubai. He will be pointed to the Alysheba at @ChurchillDowns Derby weekend,
I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

I didn’t see the race, how awful. He was a solid racehorse. RIP

Baffert on West Coast's 6f drill in 1:11: “He went great. He couldn’t be doing any better. He picked the right time to be doing well. He came through there like nothing, and he’s not a really good work horse.”

Leaves Tuesday for @DubaiWorldCup.

I wondered what the status of Imperial Hint was - looking forward to seeing him run (very fast) again!

Sharp Azteca not making trip to Dubai for Godolphin Mile due to minor injury discovered after his last work according to owner Ivan Rodriguez. Will point for Met Mile instead.

Always Dreaming is a strong possibility to make his return to the races in the Gulfstream Park Mile on the Florida Derby card. The race is also being targeted by Irish War Cry.
