Anyone happen to know what's going on with him - or where he is? Have not heard a peep since his lackluster performance in the Louisiana Derby way back
in March...

Latest I could find was the following link which mentions that Greenpointcruisader came out of the LA Derby with a leg fracture and is expected to miss the remainder of 2016.

Thanks Catalina, very much appreciated! Well, that certainly explains the poor performance. I may have missed it, but I don't recall any of the major sites mentioning his injury. I hope he heals well, and if he does indeed come back next year, he is as good as new! Many folks had high hopes for him at the beginning of the year.

Thanks again...

I also hope he heals without complications. But, surprised there isn't any more information out. Maybe the connections just didn't want to incur the media frenzy that often goes with such. On the positive side, his owners (2 of them, it seems to be a syndicate), continue to show Greenpointcrusader as being owned by them.
