I can't, for the life of me, remember what happened to him.

He isn't listed as standing anywhere, has no death or export on file with the Jockey Club. I'm going to guess he has some severe soundness issues. He raced twice in 2015 after the Kentucky Derby, May 30 in the Penn Mile(G3)(4th) and Dec. 26 in the Mathis Brothers Mile(G2)(9th). He had 2 starts in 2016, Jan. 24 Clocker's Corner S.(5th) and June 2 at Santa Anita in a AOC(2nd). He then raced once in 2017, Feb. 4 in the Palos Verdes(G2)(4th). The last article I can even find mentioning him, from August 2017, said he resumed training at Del Mar in the summer. He has no recent workouts.

That is the article that mentions him briefly.

Thanks, Flanders. I wonder if it would be worth a try writing to the connections.

Go for it! The worst that can happen is that they don't reply.

I saw his name recently (less than 2 weeks ago) on the Santa Anita vet's list - ECSWT. Stark posted the list in some thread.

* OCHO OCHO OCHO T 4/2/2018 SHOCK WAVE CASSIDY LATS
(* means has vet list history)

I'm all for horses racing if they are happy and healthy doing it. He hasn't won since 2014. He hasn't placed in a race since June 2016. He hasn't ran in a race since February 2017. He has only raced 5 times since the 2015 Kentucky Derby. Sometimes its just best to call it a day. His career has just been interrupted by huge layoffs, he has to have some or a lot of issues going on.
