Rich Perloff just said that he has been able to confirm the sad news. That's a big loss, as his offspring could run on anything, at almost any distance.

that's really an incredibly tough loss for breeders, and for his fans - i know i'm more than just a little sad.

OTTB turned prominent dressage star Sea Lord is gone. He had been ailing these past few months and was sent to New Bolton. Tests revealed masses and nodules on his lungs.

That is so sad. RIP, Sea Lord. My deepest condolences to his connections, who did their best to do right by him, and then this. Poor boy.

Condolences to her trainer, Art Sherman, and her connections. In a sad coincidence, TVG interviewed Art before the race about how 'Chrome is doing...and about this filly's chances. :(

I feel like I have read too many stories about stallions suffering a fatal colic attack during or soon after shipping back from the Southern Hemisphere. :(

I wonder whether there is a similar... trend for Southern hemisphere horses that get shipped north of the equator for any extended time (like a whole breeding season as opposed to for just a few races) and then back to down under?

It does seem more common in shuttle stallions. There are so many triggers for colic episodes and then add in stress from shipping/quarantine, change in climate, change in feed, possibly not drinking enough water during shipping/quarantine, etc.

Sometimes there are reports of colic in stallions who have just arrived in the Southern Hemisphere. I don't think there are many stallions who shuttle from the Southern Hemisphere to the Northern Hemisphere, no where near the number that shuttle from the Northern to the Southern. But there is no reason why it wouldn't happen since the same factors are in place.

Desert God Dies - sire of Pepper's Pride
Desert God has died and has been laid to rest on owner Joe Allen’s farm near Abilene, Texas. He was 24.

An unraced Virginia-bred son of the Mr. Prospector stallion Fappiano, Desert God stood at Fred and Linda Alexander’s A & A Ranch near Anthony, New Mexico, from 2001-13. He did not cover any mares in 2013 and was pensioned due to advancing age and fertility issues, and he lived the last years of his life at Allen’s farm.

Desert God was the leading sire in New Mexico from 2010-12. At the time of his death, he had sired 136 winners and 25 stakes winners from 180 starters. His runners have earned $14,767,822 and include Peppers Pride, who earned $1,066,085 and retired in ’09 holding the modern-day American record for consecutive wins -- 19 -- at the time.

Two horses died in the first race at Aqueduct today...out of a six-horse field. :(
The 4-5 favorite, Blooper, fell at the three-eighths pole due to cardiovascular collapse. Then Successful Sweep broke down at the eighth pole.
Rider Angel Arroyo is OK, Jose Ortiz is being checked out at a local hospital for ankle pain.
