I agree. There had been so many fabulous Phipps fillies that by the time she came along, we took her for granted.

Maybe some did. She would make it in my top 10, maybe top 5 favorites that I saw race. I absolutely loved her.

Mike Smith has had quite a history riding some damn good fillies and mares. It seems like whenever he's asked about 'the best,' Inside Information is always on that list.

That's a kick in the gut. Condolences to connections and fans. He was a hard knocking horse.

Effinex raced in tough company. Millionaire . Watched (and bet) on his races in NY.

RIP Effinex.

Sad day for our horse friends. :cry:

CTA and his breeder tried so hard to get this stakes winner retired. It can't happen until their PR connections give them up. Such a tough job has gotten even tougher since the hurricane.

We @CaribbeanOTTB r gutted 2 hear UNSTOPPABLE U (8y KY-bred G, Belmont S runner, Maxxam Gold Cup winner), euthanized this am due 2 founder.

Shelley Blodgett‏ @ShelleyBlodgett
Our deepest condolences 2 UU’s breeder, Shawn Mojallali, who wanted 2 give UU a forever home. We wish we could have gotten him there.

Shelley Blodgett‏ @ShelleyBlodgett 3h3 hours ago
He developed severe laminitis in hind and vet determined he was beyond helping & suffering. They humanely euthanized him this morning.

Shelley Blodgett‏ @ShelleyBlodgett
Replying to @Leahbrandon @LisaF713 @horseflynawall
Kelley visited UU often since Nov & always offered 2 retire him. His breeder called me often as he was eager to have him home. We failed.

Shelley Blodgett‏ @ShelleyBlodgett
Replying to @LisaF713 @Leahbrandon @horseflynawall
Kelley’s crushed. She visited UU 20+ times since Nov 2016 & tried really hard 2 convince them 2 retire bc declining racing & health issues.

(UU's PR trainer is the father of his last mainland trainer at Finger Lakes.)
