This is so tragic.  Sending my sympathies to all who loved Midnight Bourbon.  Am always following the Tiznow colts, hoping for someone to carry on the line.  Will never get over the loss of Irap and now Midnight Bourbon.  Rest in blessed peace beautiful one.

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.
