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.
We have a simular this week trainer gave horse to for ever home horse went threw New Holland livestock Auction !
Fortunately the killer buyer agreed to sale them to the rescue organization ! Two were saved!
Still trying to get a hold of the owner of a 12 yeAr old trotter in plainridge to tell him what has happen two his horse
