He's going to Old Friends . . . lucky horse.

"He left Palm Meadows this morning and arrives at Old Friends at 6 tomorrow morning," said Vaccarezza who will be on hand to greet his old friend when he walks off the van. "Age finally caught up to him. He came out of his race fine, but the last few days he just didn't seem to have the same energy level he has had when training these past weeks and months. He came back blowing yesterday after a routine gallop, he wasn't his usual rambunctious self, and kind of looked at me and told me it was over. The one thing I can say is that he retired 100 per cent sound."

Not sure why they brought a 9 year old back off a 26 month layoff, but good on the owner/trainer for making the decision in the best interest of the horse
