RIP old warrior. You were a stunningly handsome horse who on sheer looks would have turned heads on the show circuit. There's a couple of nice pictures of him in http://www.bloodhorse.com/horse-racing/ ... ound-in-ky

I see The Pickett Factor was by Gold Tribute--wasn't that the more expensive yearling Bob and Beverly Lewis sent to DWL, while Silver Charm stayed with Baffert?
Anyway, sorry to see it end like that for a good, honest runner.
I ran marathons. I saw the Taj Mahal by Moonlight. I drove Highway 1 in a convertible. I petted Zenyatta.

Second City, the '12 BC Derby winner was euthanized after breaking down in the Caixa Electronica S on April 1st.
He was out of Sis City, and had earned just short of $500,000 in a 44-race career.
RIP buddy

Almoonqith was injured during the running of the 3200m G1 Sydney Cup at Royal Randwick and was euthanized on track.
Because the injured horse was down on the track and couldn't be moved as the field approached the stretch, the stewards called off the race. The race caller and outriders tried to get everyone to pull up their horses, with mixed success.
Fortunately, no one actually ran into the horse or those attending to him, although I guess the riders who continued racing were not pleased that their win/placings were invalid. :roll:

On top of which they ought to get days, 30 days sounds like a good starting point.

I don't think that would work. It is very hard for riders in the middle of a race to hear the announcer, so saying that the jocks who continued riding were being deliberately disobedient would be very hard for stewards to prove.

The outriders were yelling at the riders to stop, and they didn't because they thought it was just a loose horse.
"When we were hearing the calls I thought something was coming back at us. Maybe a horse had turned around and was galloping back at us."

West Coasters and those who follow eventing might remember this guy.

Last Monarch Euthanized Due to Lung Infection
We are deeply saddened to report that Holly Hudspeth’s beloved partner Last Monarch died on Friday, April 14. Holly confirmed to EN that “Stewie” a 16-year-old Thoroughbred, contracted a lung infection and after spending a week in an equine hospital with no improvement, the decision was made to end his suffering.

Holly and Stewie partnered in 2006 and she developed him from the Novice to four-star level. They finished 17th in the 2010 Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event and were short listed for the U.S. World Equestrian Games Team the same year. Out of 69 events on his USEA record, Stewie has over 60 clear cross country rounds and very few show jumping rails.

“Stewie had the most unique personality,” Holly said. “He was like taming a wild mustang on a daily basis. Yet his bravery on the cross country and carefulness in the show jump arena was unparalleled throughout my career. I appreciate everything Stewie gave me during our time together. He was one of a kind. RIP wild man, you will be missed.”

TVG also just relayed the news. :( That is so sad. I thought the beautifully-bred colt had great potential, and looked forward to his hoped-for Belmont start.
Condolences to all the connections.

[quote][/quote]The Galileo connection was so desirable. A potentially major loss, but who knows. Baffert has run into the odds this year, that's for sure.
