RIP Industry Leader. Remember him well and I'm sorry he slid so far down after a promising start to his career.
I ran marathons. I saw the Taj Mahal by Moonlight. I drove Highway 1 in a convertible. I petted Zenyatta.

Industry Leader broke maiden at first asking. I looked up a few others from that long-ago MSW race. None became stars, but several ran in stakes and/or had long careers. And a couple wound up in low claimers, one at Turfway, the other at Laurel. At least they didn't break down.

Muddy sealed tracks are so hard on old warhorse-weary legs. So sorry, Industry Leader.

You would think that the trainers should know that. Presumably also know that...

Thanks for the great news Sparrow Castle! That poor boy looks tired and worn out, and deserves a happy retirement. He came in 10th in his only race this year - 44 lengths back. Thank God for CTA and the incredible work they do. The condition of some of these old horses still racing in PR is appalling at best. Thankfully, I get to check another War Horse off the Camarero watch list. Still concerned about several, but two in particular - 13yo m Worthy of Wings (136 starts), and 13yo g Concertos Song (123 starts).

Happy and Healthy retirement to Gato Paso !

He sure looks better today...nothing better than getting them out of their damp, dreary track stalls...

GATO PASO (2006 FL-bred G 114-starts) first day as an OTTB... He’s at Kelley’s farm where it’s smaller, quieter and he’ll gets lots of turnout time and plain ole R&R! @CaribbeanOTTB
