My condolences.  That’s very sad.  It’s been a week of losses it feels like.

Beautiful tribute to Midnight Bourbon:

How heartbreaking, that this living hymn to vitality should have been so abruptly, so cruelly, reduced to the most harrowing indignities of mortality. Midnight Bourbon has been denied the legacy he deserved, in the breed itself, and must make do with a less tangible immortality in our memories and hearts.

These, too, will be finite. In the meantime, however, let's raise a midnight toast to the lesson he bequeaths. For while those racing gods may not be interested in what horsemen may or may not “deserve”, here was a horse that at least showed us what it is to be worthy.

 Very sad news: Dortmund passed away on April 18 due to small bowel torsion that occurred in the field during the night.  I feel very sad- he was my Derby pick for the 2015 Derby.  Sounds like he was a character and beloved my those who cared for him. May he rest in peace.
