Masochistic just ran in the Harris Farms Stakes at Fresno. I think he finished 5th... and far behind the top two.
It doesn't look like Masochistic has 'lost a step.' He's lost the whole staircase. :shock:
PLEASE really retire him now. If he can't finish within yelling distance of horses whose names I can't even remember, then maybe that should be it for this attempt to bring him back to the races. Maybe as a stable pony, but as a racehorse? Uhhhh....nope. :oops: :(

If Masochistic is the type that can't really be retrained because he's so spirited, then just keep him at the track and let him "workout" a couple times a week. That way he can "want to run" and get to without running last in every race.

Eventually he'll calm down with age and then he can be a riding horse.

9yo Aldous Snow, last seen winning the G3 Singspiel at Woodbine in July of 2017, won an NSA training flat race at Middleburg yesterday. He's now trained by jumps trainer Neil Morris. Interesting...

That is awesome! He is a tough, hard-trying horse. I hope he has found his 2nd career!!! He’s not tall, but built like a tank.
Is there a way to follow him ? Equibase doesn’t show that race.

Training flat races aren't considered "official" races, they don't show up on past performances, aren't counted as part of a horse's official record, and have no purse offered (though a $500 award is usually given to the winning connections). The purpose is to let a horse have racing experience under steeplechase weights and on a steeplechase course. If he shows up in an NSA-sanctioned jumps race it will show up on Equibase. The NSA website also has video replays and in some cases livestreams of its meets (though possibly not the flat races) https://www.nationalsteeplechase.com/

I just noticed one of the most consistent geldings currently running, Stronach Stable’s secret weapon, Unbridled Juan won his first stakes this week at Delaware in the Grover Buddy Delp Memorial S. He has placed in multiple graded stakes, been in the top three in 22 of his 25 starts, and runs a good race every time.
By Unbridled’s Song too!

Aldous Snow made his debut over fences in a maiden special weight at Aiken yesterday, where he finished 3rd. He made a mistake at the first fence and nearly lost his rider but recovered well, and he did seem to handle the 2 1/4 mile distance.
