Apparently he's now retired and is being evaluated. That page has a picture of him on the trailer as he was leaving the track.

Am I not seeing what you saw Blind Lucky? It says they need $2100 by tomorrow to claim him but they didn't have it as of last night.

Not sure where to post this, but a colleague of mine was showing me a horse a relative of hers is buying. It turned out to be an ex-racer named Prom Queen, by Discreet Cat. If anyone knew that horse was on the market, or was worried about her, she's going to a good home.

Glad to hear of every one that successfully made a transition into a second career. Thanks for letting us know!

Nice female family on Prom Queen. 2nd dam is multiple GSW Parade Queen, the dam of G3 winner Untouched Talent (dam of Bodemeister), group-1 placed Obay, and SW King Gulch.
Her dam sold for $210,000 in 2008.

Thisis 5yo Lincoln Launch. Another Los Al special. He ran on Jan. 3, and apparently came out of the race with a knee fracture. This morning Jenny Earhart got a call (not sure from whom) that he was bound for the feedlot this afternoon, but she could have him if she got to the track first. She did.

He's a very lucky boy. And somebody was trying to look out for him.

I'm so glad he's safe. Had a guardian angel watching out for him.

Yesterday was 5yo Veruca Salt's lucky day. Two RMR volunteers found her at a TX auction. Intense fundraising by RMR made possible her purchase from a meat buyer. She last ran at Sam Houston on 2/7. Trainer admits taking her to the auction, but said he didn't think KBs would be there. Sure.

Not much of a liar even. Let me guess, nothing will happen to him because after all it was an "honest mistake"? I think the only mistake was he didn't figure to get caught.

Hopefully RMR will be able transition this girl to a career more suited to her. and hopefully a few days at RMR will see this mare start to perk up a bit.

Not at all sure Sam Houston has an anti-slaughter policy. Also: As I understand it, at almost any auction, the seller can set a reserve. So if you really care about where that horse goes, you can set a reserve above what KBs are currently paying (and, really, all you have to do is ask around at the auction site to figure out what that price is). Admittedly, that's a little more complicated where charros might be involved.

You can also, at most auctions, ask that your horse be ridden through. More chance that there will be other bidders.

Some good news for Texas TBs. A Texas division of CANTER is starting up. Right now, this will only be a listing service, as many CANTER groups are: photos and blurbs about horses that trainers/owners are interested in getting off track. But that's important since LOPE is no longer doing listings. You can help by contributing a few bucks to the startup fundraiser: http://www.youcaring.com/nonprofits/can ... ser/140671

Of course he didn't. :evil: I hope that SOB gets chronic jock itch.

I'm so glad Veruca is safe.

Sam Houston does have a no-tolerance policy on sending horses to kill auctions. So Donna Keen is taking them her evidence.
