Rail Trip retired to Old Friends.


Also, am hearing that 7yo Tuvia's Force (Mineshaft) has been retired to ReRun by his connections (Lucky Shamrock Stable/Zito).

According to @inkmarksofsu, Lord Kanaloa (JPN) has been retired. Can't find any other sources to confirm it though. If true, I'll be sad to see him go. He was my favorite overseas horse. But what a great career he has had.

Oh So Awesome is an 11yo hard-knocking gelding that had been on several watch lists because of his age, his mileage (74 starts), and the fact that he was running, mostly unsuccessfully, in bottom claimers at Beulah. Fortunately, his trainer has told Gail Hirt that he is retired and will go to Aikendale.

6yo mare Euronfire (Eurosilver) was hip #925 at KEEJan today. Three Chimneys was the consignor; Patti Davis was the buyer. For $5500. The Three Chimney handlers put a nifty new coat on her and put her back in their snazzy van -- and took her to New Vocations. (Don't know who put up what money.) She's a beauty and will eventually make someone very happy.

Thank God Oh So Awesome is retiring! I got to meet him a few trainers ago and was considering buying him- I was shocked to see he was still racing- and at Beulah of all places. To go from being in the Belmont Stakes to Beulah...Big thank you to his trainer!
