8, unless there's a track out there that's racing yearlings.

Yeah, he's raced twice in his 9th year of racing. Paid training bills to date with a win and a third in those 2 races...should have worded it differently.

So...I was checking the South American racing results. 12YO Al Rashid was 5th (beaten 3 1/2 lengths) in a handicap race at Monterrico (Peru) on the 9th. This makes his record 245-34-42-34. He's won at distances from 1000m to 2000m, on both turf & dirt, and is group stakes placed.

245 starts!? That's incredible, might be a record for horses in the 21st century. He's still got a ways to go though to beat the all-time record of 406 starts which is held by Hiblaze.

In the second race at Sam Houston yesterday, 10 year old Bim Bam won by a neck over 10 year old Bwanagoldmine, but was DQ'd as BB's jockey hit Bwanagoldmine with his whip:

A fan favorite at Turfway Park for many years, and mentioned often here in the War Horse thread, 12yo g Shakeyogroovething "Shakey" went wrong in Race 2
yesterday (3/25/17) at Turfway, was pulled up and vanned off. He was discussed in a Blood Horse article a few years ago. I have not heard anything further, but I'm hoping
that his 106th start was not one too many...
