The Portland Meadows list is up on Horse Racing Wrongs, and Memphis Mobster is indeed gone, from a fractured pastern. Rip sweet old horse, wish he could have enjoyed a long retirement.
Awful. Saw him many times at Emerald Downs, very nice horse. RIP Memphis Mobster.

Sorry to hear about Memphis Mobster. He showed up in this thread quite often. The only thing that gives me pause about I'lbeamonkeysuncle is that his misfortune occurred this year, and I think the HRW report covers only the 2018 calendar year. We'll hope for the best though.

10yo h Vedelago (Red Clubs - Queen Shy, by Marju), 1st at Turfway Park (3/2/19). 50 - 13-5-6, $512,071.
How did an Irish-bred Italian G1 winner wind up in $5k claiming races at Turfway? And intact, no less.

Sorry WarBiscuit- I’ve lost track of time and didn’t even pay attention to that having happened this year with I’llbeamonkeysuncle. For some reason I thought that was last year also.

I was wondering if anyone else would notice that. Looks like he was a pretty decent racer in his first few seasons in Italy. Appears that the owner brought him over here expressly to dump him, and the rather alarming drop in price in his first 5 races at Gulfstream prior to being claimed bear that out. Some interesting stories, to be sure, behind some of these old timers...
