River Angel

Not sure exactly what happened but she was retired. I was made know of her passing by someone who worked with her.

And thus it begins. There is so much sadness mixed in with the happy time. Condolences to everyone connected with Mourinho.

Sad news RIP
BTW why didn't they try to save him? I guess he wasn't valuable as a stallion
Poor animals,they got to run for the money or they are disposable.

The severity of the injury may have made it impossible to save him.
Just because you can do surgery doesn't mean its always the right thing to do. Sometimes its far kinder to just release them from the pain.

Broken sesamoids aren't easy to fix. Complicated and small, they're hard to piece back together. It's also possible that severe injury in that area can cut off circulation to the foot...and no blood circulation means a dead hoof. No hoof, no hope for recovery. :(
I Googled Sesamoid Injury and this page has a ton of photos and articles, if you want to dive in.

"We are sad to report the loss of the Mineshaft mare, It's Tricky, she passed away due to complications of foaling, she left us with Gotham Stakes winner, Enticed, who will continue her legacy on the track, Acorn Stakes winner, It's Tricky..."

She had been bred to Pioneer of the Nile. Foal did not survive either.

She was in Barbara Livingston's In Memoriam video for 2017 and mariasmon posted she had passed sometime before that(she saw it on another forum I think).

Its weird that this Bloodhorse article said, "It's Tricky had only one other foal before she tragically died from the complications of laminitis in 2017"
