I'm glad to read that. :D He has been a gutsy and honest runner for Midwest, but he's no longer a graded stakes performer. He deserves to head off for a happy retirement while he's still (hopefully?) sound.
He looks like he'd make a fine saddle horse, if he has the temperament for it.

Everyone Wants To Work With Del Mar’s Favorite ‘Neighbor’
You've probably heard of or know someone who has been referred to as a “salt of the earth” human being.

Meet Nextdoorneighbor, a “salt of the earth” Thoroughbred racehorse by the testimony of those who've crossed paths with the gelded Florida-bred son of Lido Palace who is still running and winning, lately here at Del Mar, at age eight.

“Everybody who ever rubbed him or rode him loves him,” said Mike Machowsky, the first of 10 trainers who have had the pleasure of Nextdoorneighbor in their barns over the years, starting in the fall of 2009, that Nextdoorneighbor has been campaigning through the mostly claiming level ranks.
