Thanks much, Sparrow Castle, for posting this good news about Evening Concerto. Hopefully, this all works out and he can be retired to a new and less stressfulSparrow Castle wrote:FYI because you follow this horse, WarBiscuit. He's been on the S.O.S.@NotCloudyAllDay watch list for a long time. If he races this weekend, it will be 8 days after his last race (there also are three 10 yo's in the race). Alexis has a trainer at the ready to claim him, and it looks like After The Homestretch AZ has agreed to take him to retrain and rehome. Fingers crossed.
I've met Alexis a few times and she seemed reasonable about things like this. I've known her to be very diligent about retiring/retraining/rehoming horses at the proper time when she was married to an active trainer at Golden Gates.

Retire Evening Concerto https://www.youcaring.com/eveningconcerto-1130344 … via @youcaringEvening Concerto is an 11 year old war horse currently running at Turf Paradise. He has over 120 starts and is running again this weekend for a 3,000 tag. I would like to raise 3500 so that the extra money can go to After The Homestretch Arizona (plus a bit to the trainer that will have him in barn until he is moved) NONE of the monies raised benefits me in any way shape or form. This is solely to retire this horse.
career. I did notice the other day when the entries were posted for his Sunday race, that a number of other geriatric friends would be in the gate with him - I'll be watching with great interest! There are two old sons of Concerto that I've been following the past couple of years, Evening Concerto and 13yo
Concerto's Song, running at troublesome Camarero (125 starts). I have to believe that the dear souls at CTA have their eyeballs glued on him, along with a couple of other ancient runners. Thanks again for the info!
