Great story. Thanks for posting this. I followed him early on and then lost track of him as he made the descent. Thanks to Anna and all involved who have
made him a very lucky horse. I hope he does well at regional stud duty...

That's a really cool story. He claimed Hudson Landing in 2012, and while it's probably sad to know he won't be running anymore, it's gotta be fun to know that he'll be coming home in time for the holidays and can spend a nice, sound retirement as a riding horse at his place :D

Eighttofasttocatch finishes his racehorse career as a winner (and a millionaire), and now heads off to a second career as an event horse.

Multiple stakes winner Gourmet Dinner has been retired through NYTHA's Take The Lead program. He'll head to New Vocations Racehorse Adoption Program to be re-trained for a second career.

Glad to hear it. He struggled this past year. Goes out a millionaire - healthy, happy and sound. Can't do better than that!

Good luck to Gourmet Dinner in his new career...

Gourmet Dinner has arrived for some letdown and post-track training, and is apparently a perfect gentleman :)
