At age 8, after 43 starts and 4.5 million, we will miss seeing the aging gelding. While cameras focused on a thrilling stretch drive and a mugging in front, the old warhorse broke onto his nose and never hit his stride. After crossing under the wire (5th of 7 IIRC), jockey hopped off and got him a van ride back to the barn, which he walked on unassisted. It was quickly determined to be non life threatening and potentially non career ending.
Trainer and ownership partners announced the horse owes them absolutely nothing else so he is officially retired. Dr B will be evaluating him at R&R to determine exactly what happened after which it will be shared publicly. Apparently, they had planned for this and we may be seeing him in a second career.
