He finished second, although pretty far behind the winner. And he did show some old competitive fire, because he fought to get by the third horse.
TVG apparently talked to the trainer before the race, and he had said that the horse still likes his job...but that if he didn't do well today, then that would be it for him. No one mentioned that it's entirely possible that TB may have been claimed from this race...and what will new connections do with him?
If someone just spent $40,000 for the horse, I seriously doubt they're going to turn around and send him off to be a pasture pet. :(

Per the chart, he didn't get claimed.

It's too bad...this is a filly who defeated Untapable as a two-year-old, and looked to have a tremendous future. Although, with her pedigree, she's likely to become a great broodmare.

Sigh, yes. Thought that 6th place effort in her last race was odd. Wonder who she goes to? Happy Retirement, sweetie.

Grade 2 winner Travelin Man is retired and up for adoption! He retired completely sound, but wasn't competitive in his final race (G3 Miami Mile Handicap), so I guess they figured it was time for him to find a new job. They had him gelded, and he's had a few months to let down (was gelded about 2 months ago) :D

I guess Shakin It Up hurt himself enough in the Met Mile to be retired. Wonder what he did?
I think he is a nice stallion prospect. He looks a lot like his sire, and ran like him too, and a nice female family. A shame he didn't last long.

Wondered what his status was. Foxhunting could be interesting with him. He got better as he got older but he was quite the goof on the track in the morning! :lol:

Actually, 2014 was one of her better years - but, yes indeed, this is good news. A bit surprised her current trainer didn't try to squeeze
more out of her - owners must have said enough is enough...

Jeranimo and Tiz Flirtatious retired.

Love Jeranimo's pedigree. Not commercial, but he's got Jeblar as a broodmare sire, Reviewer as his grand mare's sire, and Graustark as his 3rd dam's sire. Might be a good breed to race sire.

When she was coming back in 4 days I was mortified. 5 years old is a good time to enter a broodmare program. Shes not badly bred at all, just had a long tough run with DJ like most do.
