Anyone know what happened to him after he was sent to South America? He lost some races down there after they unretired him and then nothing...

There is something about him here but I can't read it and the translation comes across strange.

It might translate to something like, They grow children of and then all the stallions' names. So he is standing there, I would assume.

This is old news (2014) and not what I'm looking for, but thanks for trying.
He was retired at the end of 2014 and then unretired, raced a few times in S America and then vanished. I couldn't find an update past mid-2015.


Flanders, thanks for the Twitter link. He was likely retired a 2nd time and now standing stud down there; that's more or less what I was trying to determine.

Ok, didn't realize he had another racing career. Wasn't he a headcase?

According to https://www.ladyandthetrack.com/news/12 ... chile.html he was unretired and returned to racing because he hadn't been able to get any mares in foal. So if he got retired a second time, it wouldn't likely for a career as a stud. Track pony, sports horse, or somebody's fancy personal steed sound like the more positive possible outcomes.

Thanks Catalina. I already read the article you linked... and I'm not speculating, which is why I started this thread. Was hoping someone had some more recent info about him. I was a fan when he raced here, so just thought of him when I finally got around to updating my VS.
Thanks again, though.
