I don't know how that track in Dubai is playing today - but it was a slow time for the distance I think. again, I am probably wrong though. Don't say that. No one is is smarter than anyone. B...

Kinda similar to the death of Sebring in Australia just a few weeks ago at the age of 13. Sometimes these things happen, but it’s still heartbreaking and sad.
The Boodhorse article states that preliminary autopsy result suggests it was a heart attack
that caused his death

Re: Santa Anita 2019

So now we have almost a death every damn day-- is that going to be the acceptable norm now?

If you were a trainer and believed the rain is causing the problems with the track, would you put your horse
on that track? I am a fan, not a horseman, but just wondering.

IMHO, AP was the whole package: Fast while still capable of running more than a mile, sound, great conformation and with the sort of temperament that you almost never see.
