More from Shelley:
Becky’s Kitten was examined, treated & put on 8 weeks of stall rest, which he did not tolerate well Re-evaluation revealed ongoing lameness & pain not well controlled with meds. Vet concluded his QOL & prognosis 4 healing well, esp given difficulty w/ stall rest, were poor...

CTA was set 2 take him, give him TLC & time needed. We were working on sanctuary home. However, this injury, coupled w/ racing wear & tear & secondary issues related to his difficulty with recovery & stall rest, was too much 4 this galant gelding 2 overcome We’re so sorry

So sorry to hear this sad news. Time and time again over the past few years he turned up on this thread for winning and hitting the board. A bit of a damper on this Belmont Stakes day for me. What a War Horse - 132 - 20-23-21, $478,668. Raced on all levels, from the biggest of stages to Camarero...

RIP Becky's Kitten.

I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.
