13yo m Worthy of Wings, who raced 138 times, survived 2 Hurricanes in Puerto Rico and was retired from the track this year, has been offered a new home in Ohio with Mr. Kyle Rothfus of OTTB Training. Retired Racehorse Project Makeover has agreed to adopt and retrain her and funds are needed for her USDA quarantine. If you can help, please visit her at Caribbean Thoroughbred Aftercare on facebook!

13yo g Concertos Song has returned to Florida after his racing stint in PR (126 races), and is available for adoption (see RVR Horse Rescue).

Can't count the times that these two old souls were mentioned in this thread - both deserve a long, healthy and happy retirement. Some older hurricane victims did not fare as well...

Current situation at @CaribbeanOTTB farm in Rio Grande, PR. All the 🌧💦☔️from the endless tropical storms are wreaking havoc on CTA farm paddocks. The horses, normally out much of the day, are having to be stalled for periods to allow their feet and coats to dry😕😖

Memphis Mobster by Memo, 11 year old gelding, longtime stalwart at Emerald Downs and Portland Meadows did not finish his race yesterday at Portland Meadows. I just watched his race on TVG from my DVR recording. He was pulled up early and it didn't look good. His record stands at 80-21-12-7 with $166,838 earned. There was a year gap in his race/workout schedule between Aug 2017 and July 2018 and I thought he'd been retired. Sometimes it's just one race too many. He loved to run, I hope he's running still.
