Da' Tara

What happened to Da' Tara? I know he was running and easing himself. Then he went to the Keeneland sale and was purchased, then was supposedly reunited with trainer Nick Zito and working - now nothing. Any news?

he peaked at the right time. then everyone caught up. he isnt he horse we wanted him to be, no big deal. I agree.
