That is some story.  Good ending but so sad! When a man of that importance in horse racing sends horses to auctions that have kill buyers, we know we are in big trouble.  And race horses in worse trouble. 

Shame on that family.

Good story. That old mare should be able to live out her life in safety.

Saying that she was a modest earner is not correct... 11 wins and $150k is solid, but nice story by the writer. Creating awareness is critical. I wish there were a picture of her.

Old Friends is a great place and I am glad she is there.

The trainer is a ham and egger and he deserves some respect for his concern for the mare. There are million dollar trainers out there and I have not read stories about them doing the same. We need an Eclipse each year for the unsung.

As far as Asmussen, eh.
