I thought this was cute and didn't know where else to put it: 17yo Apache Cat was guest of honor at Ballarat Turf Club and seemed to enjoy watching the races :D

He clearly wanted to join in when they passed him though!

Thank you so much for sharing that video. I remember the beautifully-marked and swift Apache Cat; what a treat to see him looking so grand.

The "Consistent, versatile and durable" eight-year-old Aussie star Hartnell is going to run in his last race next month.
https://www.racingpost.com/news/interna ... nth/405333

He's a very handsome horse and, if he retires sound, I wonder if he will find a second career after racing? I'm pretty sure plenty of folks would love to have him as a saddle horse. ;) :D

The hysterical social media blitz has made Gulfstream decide to not let Green Gratto race.
https://www.paulickreport.com/horse-car ... ia-uproar/

I don't know if GG's owners will try taking him to a different track...or if they will be pressured to force the gelding back into a retirement he doesn't like. :(
Maybe they can keep him in light "training," and let him gallop once a week on the training track. Perhaps that will keep him satisfied...and more mellow.

If this is any indication, no track will let him race, lest they be hit with a firestorm from social media.
