11 year old Coraline broke down in race 3 at Thistledown today. 😥
So sorry to hear this. She was a fixture in the area for a long time. I was hopeful that she had been retired after last year, but then noticed she had been brought back to Thistledown last month. RIP Coraline.

Coraline, 11yo bay mare (FL), (Lightnin N Thunder - Maketa, by Persifleur). 75 - 13-8-4, $105,936. Nunc Dimittis.

Age Is Just a Number for Are You Kidding Me: 9 Year Old Wins Dominion Day

https://www.paulickreport.com/news/thor ... inion-day/

~ I think this belongs here. I like this horse because in the 50-1 movie, you hear a race caller call this name. Also, surprised to learn he actually isn't a gelding.

11 year old Soi Phet has run his last race in the Bertrando Stakes last weekend at LosAlamitos...he finished last and was never pushed = he retires healthy, happy and SOUND - he is on his way this week, to OLD FRIENDS for a well earned retirement. While I will miss him tremendously, THIS is what all old warriors deserve, love, respect and a happy retirement.
May they run with the WIND

What is an MX race?
MX= Mixed breed race - Thoroughbreds and Quarter Horses running in the same race. Pretty common at some smaller western and Canadian tracks. You will notice at Equibase, above the name of the horse will be a stat box listing TB/QH or MX races (for those who run in multiple categories). The statistics of those races are kept independent of each other.
