Unfortunately the foal couldn't survive.....

That is very, very sad. May they both RIP. My heartfelt condolences to the people who took care of Robe Decollete, had looked forward to her foal, and were present when it happened.

He bred Arazi. RT: "@NBCSports: It's a sad day in the NFL. The Buffalo Bills announced owner/founder Ralph Wilson has died at 95."

From Mark Moran on FB:

Ralph Wilson has died. He bred Arazi and Jim French, and his Oxford Stable raced horses such Key Dancer and Doubles Partner in the 1980s. He also bought back Adjal as a yearling for $7.5 million in 1985; the son of Northern Dancer became a champion sprinter in Europe.

I'm reading on DRF that Bertrando has died at 25, due to 'the infirmities of old age.'
He was a really good racehorse, and a great California sire. I hope his son, Tamarando, continues to do well.

Sorry to hear this news. A "good" racehorse might be an understatement. Gave A.P. Indy a run for his money in the
SA Derby, and as a DRF poster pointed out, a "California Institution"! Sounds like he was failing quickly, and I am grateful
that they took such good care of him in the end.

RIP Bertrando...

Arrrgh... She dropped back from first to next to last in her Nov 20 race, and was the tail light in her 2 subsequent races. RIP Art of the Game, RIP.

Mars, a 4 year old colt by Galileo out of Massarra, suffered a cardiac arrest in Meydan's Race 8, the Dubai Sheema Classic. He bolted to the outside and ran through the rail. Sadly, he passed away. Rest in Peace Angel.

He may have had cardiac arrest, but not before hitting the rail and flipping end over front. How do they make these diagnosis so quickly, given the circumstances?

I got the impression that he was experiencing some sort of 'cardiac event' when he bolted...that the trauma (and maybe the pain) caused the colt to sort of lose control of himself, panicking right into the fence. Hitting the fence and flipping might have caused a heart attack, but I guess the question is; what caused a colt who has never behaved that way before to suddenly bolt?

i've heard of horses bolting when having cardiac issues before, so i think the issues causes the bolting.

Horses that have cardiac issues, suffer massive blood loss incredibly quickly generally due to a rupture of a major blood vessel. Even the most sensible, rideable horse in the world will not act rationally whilst it's suffering massive internal blood loss.

I've seen it a couple of times before, one horse went through the railings and another, sadly ran straight into a solid wall by the racecourse :(
