Really crazy he has to pay his way back.  Did he not earn anything over there?

Here's a situation where some wealthy owners could pitch-in for charity.  Some of them are great and do their part, but others participate in the sport and give nothing back--I find that shameful!

It is my understanding WE was not great in the breeding barn; that being said some owners just don't pitch-in after they stop making a profit. i think  Silver Charm's owners were highly commended by Michael for footing  the bill to bring him home.  Also, Ii is probably costing more to bring WE home since his vet and groom are accompanying him as the horse does not travel well, so there is the added expense to get the two here and then fly them back.

If I remember correctly he was owned by a Saudi prince who died a couple years later unexpectedly (heart attack ??).  If not mistaken his horses, were all sold at dispersal.  Not certain if the estate or an heir retained ownership of War Emblem or whether the farm in Japan purchased him.  If the farm in Japan purchased, then I would imagine they would not be willing to pay his way back.
