It has been a bad year for Pulpit offspring. :( We lost Lucky Pulpit to a heart attack and Lord Nelson is still recovering from his own bout of colic/laminitis.

I did see a stud advertisement for Lord Nelson on TVG so he must be doing well.
I ran marathons. I saw the Taj Mahal by Moonlight. I drove Highway 1 in a convertible. I petted Zenyatta.

Judging by those dates, I have to wonder if those two mares were lost to foaling complications. :(
Also wonder why we're just now hearing about their deaths. :?

I suppose we need to be grateful we heard about them at all.

I just came aross these only yesterday, when I was checking out some of imported mares' breeding records on the Japanese studbook.
Both mares were owned by Shadai Group (Northern Farm and Shadai Farm).
It's not that they always make the headlines that pop up on the media for these death reports.
You may have to visit the studbook database regularly.
But only a very few people will do it.
And I do it only once a year......

As you may see above, it seems that both mares died of foaling complications...

Sad end for Admire Deus

Luke Sheehan @LukeDSheehan 10:30am

Admire Deus' fight for life has ended in a stunningly sad end for the Japanese import.

Days out from the Caulfield Cup, in which he was set to start as one of the leading chances, the Darren Weir-trained galloper broke down during a customary gallop at Warrnambool with a severe injury to ligaments in the lower part of his suspensory.

After multiple surgeries by the team at the Ballarat Veterinary Clinic, Admire Deus' fight for life came to an end - Weir confirming the worst on Sunday.

"Unfortunately he's lost his battle," Weir said.

Admire Deus was a multiple Group 2 winner in Japan, and was a Group 1 performer - his last run seeing him finish within two lengths of superstar Kitasan Black in the Tenno Sho (Spring) at Kyoto in April.

Co-owners Australian Bloodstock and the Ballarat Veterinary Clinic's Dr Ian Fulton were not in a position to offer further comment on Sunday.

MG1W It's Tricky (dam of the promising Enticed) apparently died this year and produced a dead foal, as well.

Aw. :cry: It's always doubly heartbreaking when both are lost. Such a good race mare and apparently becoming a fine broodmare as well.
