Some trainers choose to get their horses fit by racing but this is absolutely unexceptionable IMHO

 Did American D'Oro pass away?  I am not clear about that- As of yesterday I thought he was ok

As far as we know American D’Oro is still alive , I just posted his very weak workout chart and IMHO he was not fit enough to run a credible race over 1 1/16 mile

 Thanks for that info:  it doesn't bode well for this horse if his trainer is putting him in races for which he isn't fit

We lost a wonderful owner. Condolences to his family and friends. Horse racing has lost another icon in the sport.

 I feel very sad about his passing: I was just coming here to post this.  He was a wonderful man, an owner that truly loved and did right by his horses. I will always believe that he saved the life of Songbird by recognizing she had a serious problem.  Condolences to his friends and family.  I believe his love for horses extended his life as he fought through battling cancer for several years.
