RIP Cara Rafaela. She will live on through her son. I remember when she was racing, a pretty long-legged roan, almost rose-coloured.

That sucks. From his photo, he appears to be the best-looking son of Giant's Causeway I've seen. I hope his last crops excel.
I see in the Comments after the Bloodhorse article that Harris Farms also just lost Huntsville. :( Bad times for the CA farm.

I always thought he was a powerful, awesome-looking horse. May he RIP, a sad loss.

Condo Prince will have to be euthanized on the track. The injury was to the left fore. And Grumpelstiltskin was 6-1 not, 7-1

JUST JACK had a heart attack in the stretch of the Jennings Handicap at Laurel today. He was a barn favorite and from what I know was a very sweet horse. I have a photo of him I will post as soon as they are uploaded. Jockey Alex Cintron was on the ground for a while but he is okay.

Confirmed via Caribbean TB Rescue in PR:

Srta Aleidy C late 2016- her last race was 11/11/16- which she won easily- due to laminitis
http://www.equibase.com/profiles/Result ... registry=T
She was a bright star at the track- won multiple stakes in PR
35 23-8-3 $260,988
Harlington x Colourbynumbers (Polish Numbers)

From what I was told, she was adored by all who knew her and not a mean bone in her body

May she rest in peace.

I am so very sorry for your loss, serenassong. You knew her growing up, I take it?
What an impressive race record she had - clearly one of the best fillies at Camarero!

Thanks, Cat- she was by Harlington- so they are like my own. I watch the results and follow as much as I can.
