This was his first start as a 4-year-old--and bless his heart, his 29th start overall (he ran 19 times last year)--where he was completely thrown in over his head. He was a vet scratch from a race at the end of November, only had one 4F workout in the last 60 days (December 15), and was thrown into a Grade 2 when he hadn't hit the board in the last two listed stakes he was entered in.

I realize that this was an accident, he clipped heels and went down, but he was 133-1 for a reason when thrown in so far over his head in this race. The horse raced sometimes once per week for a month or more at a time last year, and I just hate seeing his story end this way.


So do I, BL. :cry: Whatever were they thinking? That he should be good for at least a $2,000 payday?


THIS just breaks my heart RIP Copingaway
May they run with the WIND

Next to the Pegasus, this is the race I was really looking forward to watching today...really puts a damper on a great day of racing. RIP Many Clouds, you always gave your all.

Horse racing made it onto the lead page of Yahoo News...but it wasn't about the Pegasus. It was about the death of Many Clouds.

Whiskey Wizard, was going to the post yesterday at Gulfstream Park when he reared and flipped over hitting his head. He was euthanized due to several severe skull fractures.
