He was such a promising sire. Probably had his best book of mares this season.
Very strange statement from Walden: “Walden said that there would be no further comment from the farm.”
Maybe not too odd. They’re damned if they do, damned if they don’t. Maybe they just are sick and tired of armchair experts.
When I first saw the announcement on Paulick’s FB post, there were about 10 comments, one of which was “what did they do to him?”. So yeah, I wouldn’t blame them for keeping mum.
What a terrible loss. He had some good looking get at the sales as well as his runners.
Such a good looking boy!
Everyone knows that freak things happen- you’re leading a horse, it rears up and falls over, lands wrong and is gone, and so many other bad situations. No one wants to have to deal with the finger pointing.

Coincidentally, I did the farm tour at WinStar yesterday, and nobody there said a word about it. I had no idea until I heard about it later in the day from someone else.
Not that I blame them. But still. Very weird to find out after the fact.
