Thanks for the link, mariasmon. How very sad to lose him in that manner at his young age. Still breaks your heart to see that scarred face after the fire.

RIP Phoony

Joe Carl, a stable pony for Doug O'Neil, passed away in June after a severe bout of colic. The son of Jump Start was a very popular claimer on the track and was claimed out of most of his races; he often had multiple claims. He was placed in the Arapahoe Park Classic.

One of O'Neil's assistants owned him after he retired, and he came to work at the stable when she did.

A tragic outcome at Ascot as Beat the Bank suffered an irreparable injury as he crossed the wire the winner of the G2 Summer Mile. :(
Tragedy at Ascot as Beat The Bank suffers fatal injury in Summer Mile win
There was a tragic postscript to the Fred Cowley MBE Memorial Summer Mile Stakes at Ascot as the admirable Beat The Bank, who crossed the line first in the Group 2, suffered a fatal injury.
Sent off the 2-1 favourite for an event he landed last year, Beat The Bank was keen early as he tracked the leaders, but moved closer two out and was driven to victory by Silvestre de Sousa, edging out Zaaki by a nose.
However, he lost his action as the winning post arrived and finished lame as staff at the royal racecourse quickly erected screens around the consistent five-year-old.
He was reportedly able to walk into the horse ambulance and was taken to the on-course stables for further assessment, but could not be saved.
Trainer Andrew Balding said: "Sadly, he suffered multiple and inoperable fractures."

Sorry to hear that. I tried, but could not find any information about her.

RIP Jerseymooseisloose.

Aw. :cry:
I didn't know that she wasn't just suffering from a terrible case of colic, but from malignant tumors in her abdomen.
Condolences to her connections for the loss of their lovely filly.
