Thanks for the update, parakeet. I was wondering about the outcome. Saw the race today and though I noticed the first horse go bad, never saw the second, but the track announcer said he fell. I assumed the worse, but had hoped for the best. So sad.

Is there an article about this? I can't find it anywhere although multiple outlets report that he had a case of mild laminitis back in October. I started looking because I confused him with Grand Reward at first and thought GR had died.

I don't know that I've seen an article, but it was all over Twitter. There may be a Tweet somewhere with an article link, not sure who first announced it :(

I posted about it in a thread about the BC, bottom of the page: http://www.thoroughbredchampions.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=4318&start=250

I don't remember an article about it, but it might have been an add-on to another article I read. It made me so sad that this mighty fine horse couldn't seem to catch a break. It's not like me not to post sources about things like this but you're right, Blind Lucky, it was all over Twitter at the time. I was on my Tablet a lot around the time of the BC, which takes more time to copy/paste things.

laminitis claims another life...this time Grand Tito's one. RIP.

Thanks guys. I wasn't implying that you or PP were posting false info; just curious about the source since I couldn't find anything (not surprising now since I am not on Twitter).

6yo g Cole's Magic Vow was "pulled up, euthanized" in Race 4 at Delta Downs yesterday (12/1/16).

(Private Vow - Southern Duchess, by Concerto), 30 - 11-6-4, $228,163. These final stats are the only epitaphs for most of these blue collar horses. RIP...
