The 2018 foals from both Flute and Sweet Talker were reported dead some time after birth.

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.

Scroll down and you find a few brief video clips of the filly, The first one is with the vet and is the longest.

RIP Via Veneto, may your little girl do you proud.
