Re: In Memoriam 2019

4 horses in 4 days at Santa Anita, Noise Mandate, Like Really Smart, Last Promise Kept, and Amboseli. Horrible 4 days.

Re: The WAR HORSE Chronicles

And thank you for your diligent work, keeping tabs of these old- timers. It helps us keep our eyes on them also!

Re: The WAR HORSE Chronicles

Yes indeed, War Biscuit! Because of you- I remember seeing that he had been involved in that- so when we heard Faith had gotten him- I screenshot that chart and sent it to our group. And then to race on as long as he did, amazing. if only that horse could talk, I would love to know what he would say.

Re: The WAR HORSE Chronicles

Glancing back through some of the 2018 posts, I noted a few familiar names. Our newest member to the forum, Faith, has Dorothy’s Diamond retired to her farm, and another one of the ladies in our little group was able to obtain and retire Sons of Missouri and he’s at a small rescue enjoying retirement!

Re: Waiting for news on ...

Yes. That was my thought also, Catalina. That’s why I suppose a small part of me is still hopeful that Rose Dynasty is ok, maybe just tripped or stumbled, but I feel that’s probably not the case and they just don’t want to mention that it was fatal.

Re: Waiting for news on ...

Sorry, Catalina, I’m not sure if that’s in reference to the horse or my wondering if they are hiding the deaths, but I used to see that the charts would actually say “euthanized on track,” “vanned off and euthanized”, “suffered catastrophic injury, euthanized”, but I no longer see mention of that in...

Re: Waiting for news on ...

Not a Thoroughbred, but a QH, Rose Dynasty appeared to break down in race 1 at turf paradise on 1-20. Chart just says lost rear end action, and lost rider. Watching the race, it looked bad, and then they quickly zoomed the camera away from her. Does anyone know her fate? This is also making me wonde...

Londie Lou just broke down in race 10 at Parx. Watching her try to run on dragging her broken leg behind her makes it harder to watch racing anymore. :cry:

Re: In memoriam 2018

2 sad deaths today. Sambucca Steve in race 1 at gulfstream. He used to hold some track records at mahoning, not sure if they still stand. And in race 3 at Aqueduct, a horrific wreck. Consensus Thinking broke down and ran in front of Gnarly who crashed into him. Jose Lezcano transported to the hospit...

Re: Waiting for news on ...

Big Tire (Candy Ride), who began his career on the big stage, racing along side California Chrome and Hoppertunity in the 2014 Santa Anita Derby has ended up running in claimers at Thistledown. Last week (9/27/17), he was a DNF in race 7 - "injured nearing the far turn, pulled up and vanned off". A...

Re: The WAR HORSE Chronicles

Bank of Dad is with me! What a great guy he is! Old Friends has agreed to take him - he will hopefully be moving there after the 24th- thank you, Old Friends, you will be getting a sweet old man. Thank you to the amazing Rose Smith, who's heart knows no bounds when it comes to retiring these wonder...

Re: The WAR HORSE Chronicles

Agree, WarBiscuit- but the owner/trainer has been approached about selling him and she has refused. She intends to keep racing him, unless someone claims him first.

Re: The WAR HORSE Chronicles

Bank of Dad came in last in his race yesterday, beaten by 13 1/2 lengths. According to the chart had to check hard. Thank goodness this old warhorse came home safe. And WarBicuit- thank you for teaching me about a feature of equibase that I didn't know existed! Although now they changed much of the...

Re: The WAR HORSE Chronicles

WarBiscuit- I looked up Frisky Ricky on equibase - the last 2nd place finish I see for him is in 2014, and I didn't see any recent van offs. Are they not up to date on their info? However, what I do see is that he is a horse who sadly has been performing pretty poorly for awhile and could use a reti...
