2010 Irish Road x Miss Storm colt. "Punk" never made it to the track. Stopped training after a few months, his breeder/owner was surprised that horses were expensive and couldn't afford to get him to the races. He was sold to an outrider at Parx to turn into a pony and he was a great pupil. He'd started working in the morning and was catching horses. Euthanized after complications from colic.

Heartbreaking breakdown. I am rarely opinionated on such matters...but Tizardo deserved a better, or at least, more disciplined ride than he was given by his jockey. RIP.

RIP "Punk," you were a handsome boy and I'm sure you would have made a great pony!
I ran marathons. I saw the Taj Mahal by Moonlight. I drove Highway 1 in a convertible. I petted Zenyatta.

Very sad. We'll never know whether his breakdown was connected to the hard bump at the start, or was
caused by the horse taking a bad step when checked. Farewell, Tizardo, post time favorite in your one and only start.

General Challenge
Golden Eagle Farm
Its with a heavy heart that we announce the great GENERAL CHALLENGE has been euthanized. He was not doing well the last few days and today his condition deteriorated rapidly. The great ones always tell us when its their time and he told us today. Everyone at the farm was with him when he passed. He is being buried next to Best Pal at Golden Eagle Farm. We will miss you General.

Brutal. That's terrible. We lost a horse that way once, the infection went up into his leg.
Was really looking forward to seeing how she matured.
RIP Chriselliam.
