That is really sad. Condolences to those who cared for her.

Oh yes, this is very sad. So sorry for those who've been close to her. And I know you've been there for her, Summer Bird.

HIP #410 Chestnut Colt by Bowman's Band out of Pam'ssummerwind broke down at the Fasig-Tipton under tack show at Timonium and was euthanized. Rider was unharmed. He was a 1/2 to Miss Charm City and Jim's Prospect both stakes winners. Worked an 1/8th in 10:1. :(

I hate those under tack speed fests that two-year-olds are made to do. :evil:

Also, RIP Fast Munny, who suffered a fatal heart attack in the stretch of the 6th race yesterday at Santa Anita, per my email newsletter from LA Times reporter John Cherwa.

I wonder if there have been any youngsters, who set fast fractions in one of those sales, who have actually ever had success racing? And how many came down with injuries and never made it to the track at all? :?
I know that the times are used to promote a 2yo's price at the sales, but do buyers/trainers really place much value on those times?

At least in the case of The Green Monkey, the horse actually made it to the races, even though he was never competitive, leastways not compared to other horses in his price range.

Since I cannot - aside from TGM - recall ever hearing of a horse having started its racing career with a stellar 2YO under tack time, I suspect you are correct and very few of them make it to the races.

I found the following article re: under-tack show times and purchase price:

https://thehorse.com/17278/breeze-times ... rformance/

I'll post if I find anything else.

ETA: This topic has started me thinking and I've begun to look at some of the past results of the under tack shows vs. racetrack performance. Will compile some stats on what I find but I will put it some place more appropriate than the "In memoriam" thread.

Tonka
My friend Erica’s five year old ottb gelding. Erica bought Tonka off the track as a three year old and her and I had both been bringing him along over the years training Tonka up to be an event Horse. Erica lives up here in NH but had taken Tonka south to Florida for the winter to compete with her other two horses. She was due to begin making the trip home on Friday and now must do so with an empty trailer spot. Tonka shattered his leg on cross country yesterday during a one day schooling event he was doing with Erica. We wanted to give him every possible chance so opted to send him to the clinic. He was there overnight and when Erica went to see him this morning she called me in tears saying he was clearly visibly uncomfortable even with the meds the vet was giving him. After talking it over, Erica and I decided to let Tonka go. Both our hearts are shattered. I was in tears tonight as I stripped and disinfected his stall. Tonka was my loveable,sweet,sweet goofy boy with such a personality. I really felt like he had such a bright future in eventing and I had been planning to enter him in some events here in NH. I blame myself for not being there to say goodbye in person and Erica just keeps saying what if. She keeps wondering if she could’ve pulled him up sooner and prevented it. I don’t blame her at all. I know accidents happen with horses. I just can’t believe it happened to one of ours. Fly high my beautiful boy, we miss you already
