That's very sad. I remember seeing his race s on TVG's evening programs, and being very impressed. Terrible that a grape sized tumor was so virulent and brought him down so fast. :-(
I ran marathons. I saw the Taj Mahal by Moonlight. I drove Highway 1 in a convertible. I petted Zenyatta.

That is so heartbreaking. My deepest condolences to his connections, to his many fans, to all who loved him.

I have a photo of him in 2015 when I visited the farm. It's kind of a roam as you please place so it was hard to identify some of them. Once I have a chance I'll post one. He was spectacular and the owners are devastated. He may have been riddled with tumors they won't know until the necropsy comes back.

Too many members of this family have died prematurely. I hope KJ escapes the curse.
