Nine-Year-Old Vyjack Out Of Retirement, Back In Training
https://www.paulickreport.com/news/thor ... -training/
I don't have a problem with horses racing when they are right. He is 9, he hasn't raced since August 2017, he hasn't won since October 2016. The owner already retired him, just let him be retired. I hate the the seemingly more common bs of a horse is retired to only come back to the races a month or so later. That isn't retirement, that's giving your horse a break on the farm.

Grade 1 Winner Diversify to Join Thomas' Florida String
For Ralph Evans it was the most difficult and emotional decision he has faced in 30 years of owning Thoroughbreds.

When Rick Violette Jr. passed away Oct. 21 after a lengthy battle with lung cancer, Evans lost more than a trainer. He was left without one of his closest friends for about 30 years, a person with whom he shared unforgettable experiences such as racing in the Kentucky Derby Presented by Woodford Reserve (G1) and winning the Whitney Stakes (G1) and Jockey Club Gold Cup (G1).

So, when it came time for Evans and his daughter, Lauren, to choose a new trainer for Diversify, their winner of the aforementioned 2018 Whitney and 2017 Jockey Club Gold Cup, it was a process filled with sorrow and many memories for the co-owners, but one that came to end Jan. 22 when Ralph Evans said that Jonathan Thomas will take over as the 6-year-old gelding's trainer.

You are very welcome. I saw that in my Twitter feed during my lunch break and I knew I had to post about him when I got home. ;)

Gelding Blame The Makers runs today at Tampa Bay Downs. Very high on him. Think he will break maiden today and could be a stakes caliber horse.
