Fractured a sesamoid in his left foreleg. Bummed. Happy retirement, friend.

He may not be famous, but he's a real cool character and one of my favorites at EMD. I'll miss him out grazing on the grass by the parking lot, and wish him a very happy retirement!

PROLIFIC POLISH DOLLAR CALLS IT A CAREER
Polish Dollar(pictured right), who was tied for most wins by an active Emerald Downs horse, has been retired and shipped to Allaire Farms in Poulsbo, trainer Bob Meeking said.

“He’s sound as a horse can be,” Meeking said. “He was always a difficult horse to train, but this year he became almost impossible. It was time to hang it up.”

A 10-year-old Washington-bred gelding by Polish Gift-Spediacci, Polish Dollar spent his entire 47-race career at Emerald Downs, compiling a 15-6-7 record with $150,872 in earnings for owner Sharon Radke. In 2012, he won four races and rose from $5,000 claiming to a four-length victory in an $18,000 allowance race.

Trained by Meeking from 2012-15, Polish Dollar also was conditioned by Brad Varner in 2009-10, and Debbie Van Horne in 2011.

With Polish Dollar retired, 9-year-old Chaching Pete, who scored his 15th Emerald Downs win last week, becomes the No. 1 winner among active horses. West Seattle Boy with 21 wins holds the all-time track record for wins.

Not surprised to read this...she's been sort of asking to be retired for a while now. Hope she makes a great broodmare.
