11yo g Bank Account, a mid-western fan favorite for many years, was injured in Race 7 at Fairmount Park on June 12th, and was pulled up and vanned off.
It was the 107th career start for this War Horse. Any news would be appreciated!

12 year old gelding Pacific Tsunami won R4 at Marquis Downs this evening. He resembles a largish shetland pony in physique, but he got the job done.

A brief video from our modest little track this evening -- very scenic!

Some War Horse celebrities racing this week include 10yo Soi Phet, looking to hit that million dollar mark in the Bertrando Stakes at Los Alamitos (7/4, R8), and 12yo Classic Wildcat will make his 99th start at Suffolk Downs on Sunday (7/8, R7). I believe that this is his first start since being claimed from King Leatherbury back in March. 5K tag - maybe KL will be in attendance?!

Also racing at Suffolk this weekend, 12yo Parker's Project, 10yo Canaveral, 10yo Chaotic Bull, 10yo Lagoon of Diamonds, 10yo Small Giant,
12yo Khan of Khans, 10yo Robie the Cat (Trivia - where does his name come from?), 10yo Silent Tale, 10yo m Las Mercedes,
11yo Ghostwalking, and 11yo Holiday Boy. Impressive line-up of seniors at Suffolk. Good luck to all of them!

Oh I hope so! :D

We finally got an Allowance race on Saturday to fill for one of our mares who we badly do not want to lose to a claim and at her preferred distance too...that happens maybe once a year.

Cheers to a great week of racing!

Another grateful retiree, courtesy of Caribbean Thoroughbred Aftercare, is 10yo g Charlie Bull. After finishing in first place at Camarero on March 15, 2017, he took more than a year off and was brought back to the track in 2018. He has not done well this year, finishing 10th, 12th and 10th in his 3 races - the last on June 22 crossing the line 121 lengths behind. Clearly, Charlie was out of gas. He will be well taken care of and put up for adoption.

Charlie Bull (Philanthropist - Cosa Rara, by Tethra). 92 - 16-17-17, $358,988. From cold Canada to steamy Puerto Rico, and many points in between, a job well done.
