What a loss. :(
I will never forget the throwdown he had with Tiznow in the 2000 BC Classic. And I guess we better appreciate Tiznow while we still have him, since he's only a year younger.
I'm sorry that we lost the great writer Bill Nack last Friday, because a great horse like Giant's Causeway deserves to have an homage written by Nack.

Within a half hour, we lost two very fine racehorses today. Condolences to their connections and fans, of which there are many.

Sad to report that Bullard's Alley has been euthanized, per #Keeneland officials. Sustained a lateral condyle fracture of left hind in the Elkhorn. 6YO gelding a multiple graded winner, highlighted by last year's G1 Canadian International. Was just shy of $1M in earnings.

Ten Blessings has been euthanized, according to the stewards. Fractured both sesamoids in left front during the Kona Gold.

I don't recall seeing their names mentioned around here, but a few horses living in the shadow of bigger names have passed at Old Friends during the past few months.

Burrwood, son of Bayou Herbert, 1994 - 2018. Sent to slaughter and was rescued by sheer luck.

Hidden Dark, daughter of Ferdinand, 1990 - 2018.

Ukiah, son of Unbridled's Song, 2002 - 2018.

R.I.P

If you have an interest, you can read about them at Old Friends. www.oldfriendsequine.org

Who owns Flute now? Was not sure if she sold or not. Last I know was Juddmonte?

Juddmonte as far as I know. She never went through an auction. They have sold some of her daughters, though to be fair she does have 12.
