Out of an old Pin Oak female family line. Some of my favorite horses came out of that line. Service Stripe's dam was Wedding Picture (Blushing Groom). Wedding Picture's dam, Strike a Pose (Iron Ruler) also produced Strike a Balance (Green Dancer) the dam of Peaks and Valleys. Strike a Balance also produced Alternate (Seattle Slew), the dam of Alternation (current Pin Oak stallion). Wedding Picture also produced Wedding Vow (Nijinsky) the dam of Broken Vow (current Pin Oak stallion), as well as Constant Companion (Relaunch) the dam of Forever Together. (LOL, I think I got the relationships straight.) Now I'm following some of their babies.

It was posted elsewhere that, Archipenko, had passed but here is a nice write up about how important he was to his owner.

Time in Motion, a $650,000 firster by Uncle Mo x Flirting with Fate, pulled up in the 7th (MSW) at Gulfstream and was reportedly euthanized. :( He was a half-brother to Dancing With Fate (or maybe it was Dances With Fate?) who suffered a fatal training injury to end a fine career. RIP youngster.

Aww. :(
I was watching the race, but missed it when he was pulled up. The TVG guys had talked about his pedigree, his auction price and what a good-looking colt he was, so they really noticed when he was eased.
I didn't hear about his loss during their racing coverage...maybe the colt was vanned back to his barn and then diagnosed with an untreatable injury?
What a shame.

It was reported on TVG via someone trackside. The pull-up looked bad. It seems even tougher when it's a "baby" who didn't have the chance to run and compete as his nature told him to.

The half brother you are thinking of was Dance with Fate by Two Step Salsa. May they both RIP.

How horrible, I was not at the track today but was reading the results on Bloodhorse and noticed Bernadiva, Speighal wasn't listed in the results. Good that I've seen this before watching the replay (now I'll skip it). That makes 1 death yesterday and 1 today at GP - I'm glad I haven't been there.

I don't know how I missed this, and I only found out while watching Barbara Livingston's 2017 In Memoriam, so I am fairly crushed right now. She was a huge favourite of mine and I am surprised this didn't make any headlines whatsoever.

I don't think they released the information and mariasmon found it when searching for either 2017 foals or who mares were bred to for 2018.

Pretty much. Someone on another forum asked me about her specifically after Enticed won the Kentucky Jockey Club and I found the info then.

Easily the most gut wrenching part of the slideshow was seeing Bens Cat and Effinex...was like reliving the news they passed all over again. And also the babies..
