That sucks. He was the favorite in yesterday's race. He made $181,690 of that money for someone last year, running 18 times. RIP Ticfaw.

We just lost our much anticipated Curlin foal, born 2 weeks early, red bag delivery, out of a maiden SW mare. One of our best bred foals we were
looking forward to this year. dammit! :(

Thank you, yes the mare is fine. She didn't get in foal in 2014, and now we lost this foal of hers, so hopefully she will get back in foal and this third try for her will be the "charm". She's a leading SW for a NY sire and her owners are anxious to get a nice foal from her.

Grachus the Hunter just went down on the backstretch during the 6th at Santa Anita. Looked like he went wrong and the jock was trying so hard to pull him up as they plummeted through the field...until he went off the horse. Sorry to report he did not make it = RIP Grachus = condolences to his connections
May they run with the WIND

The horse deserved a mention in this thread, but...

Sorry I thought I copied YOUR post -with YOUR "postie" I guess I need to pay more attention to make sure things work as expected - I was just so distraught - I wanted him remembered

Fire At Will (QH) won the G1 Winter Derby tonight, then shattered his knee past the wire and was put down. Man, that's rough.

I watched that race from Los Al last night, and the camera showed the rider trying to pull up the horse, who clearly had a severe injury. Hard to bring a QH running at top speed to a stop very quickly, so he probably compounded the original injury. :(
TVG didn't provide any info about the incident, as the live crew went off the air soon after that race, but I suspected that it wouldn't be a good outcome.
Condolences to the connections of Fire At Will.

Per GGF minutes
Native Heart, Trainer Jerry Hollendorfer. Midway through a workout February 2, 2016 something went wrong. The horse suffered a compound fracture of the left fore ankle and was euthanized by Dr. Allison.
