Paulick has a detailed article about Da Dude's colic surgery, where the surgeon discovered not just one problem, but two. :shock:
Fortunately, he was at Rood & Riddle being prepped for surgery within an hour of his first symptoms, and it sounds like he has recovered well.

Wow. That sounds dicey. So glad he's doing well now (and kudos to Paulick and Natalie Voss for getting the details out to us)!

Another in the series.

Children of Secretariat: the giant killer who twice toppled a champion
In the racing industry, the term ‘giant killer’ is commonly used to refer to the great trainer H. Allen Jerkens. Twice he took down Secretariat on the racetrack, with Onion and Prove Out. The phrase might also be applied to one of Secretariat’s offspring, a chestnut filly named Super Staff.

After all, she twice defeated one of America’s top turf mares of all time, multiple champion and future Hall of Famer Flawlessly. But that’s getting ahead of the story.

I remember her...one tough turf mare, I especially followed her when I found out she was a daughter of Secretariat.

He's looking good for a middle-aged retiree. :D

Remains of Glacial Princess to be Moved to Old Friends
On Jan. 21 and Jan. 22, the remains of two-time Ohio Horse of the Year Glacial Princess will be transferred from the former Beulah Park in Grove City, Ohio to Old Friends Thoroughbred retirement farm in Georgetown, Ky.

A multiple stakes winner, the Ohio-bred Glacial Princess broke down during the Ballerina Stakes in 1987 at the Ohio oval and was euthanized. The then 6-year-old mare was buried in the infield and a memorial was placed at the grave site.

But Beulah Park closed in 2014, and since then the property has been sold and redevelopment is scheduled. The redevelopment plan spurred Elyria-based racehorse owner Ryan Brady to lead efforts to relocate the popular race mare.
