Kudos has died, my condolences to his connections

Graded-Stakes Winner Kudos has Died at Old Friends

The 26-year old gelding was donated to Old Friends by Jerry and Ann Moss in 2006.

?

GEORGETOWN, KY – Jan. 6, 2023 – Kudos, a multiple-stakes winning gelding, died on Wednesday, Jan. 4, 2023, at Old Friends thoroughbred retirement farm in Georgetown, Ky., announced president and founder Michael Blown.

The 26-year old bay thoroughbred by Kris S.–Souq, by Damascus, was found dead in his paddock during late-afternoon feeding. A reason for his death is unknown at this time. Necropsy results are pending to get an accurate cause of death.

.

Bred and owned by longtime Old Friends supporters, Jerry and Ann Moss, Kudos was foaled in Kentucky on April 17, 1997.

Trained by Richard Mandella his entire career, Kudos began racing in 1999, but did not win his first race until his eighth career start as a 4-year old in a maiden special weight race at Santa Anita on March 17, 2001. He then won his next three consecutive races, two allowance races, and the Jim Murray Memorial Handicap (Black Type) at Hollywood Park for his first stakes victory.

In 2002, he won two more stakes races – the San Marino Handicap (Black Type) at Santa Anita, and the Oaklawn Handicap (G1) at Oaklawn Park, his first-graded stakes win, and the biggest win of his career. In the race, he came back from 15 lengths behind to win by 4-3/4 lengths.

As a 6-year old in 2003, he won the Californian Stakes (G2), while finishing second in the San Pasqual Handicap (G2), and third in the Santa Anita Handicap (G1), the Oaklawn Handicap (G1), the race he won the previous year, and the Hollywood Gold Cup (G1), his final race.

Kudos retired with seven wins, five seconds, four thirds, and $1,238,935 in earnings in 24 career starts.

Unfortunately, in the 8th race at Gulfstream today, Bo Derek fell in the stretch and had to be euthanized.:( 2 other horses also fell but they both appear to be okay. Their jockeys are okay, but Jesus Rios goes to the hospital to get checked out.  My condolences to the connections of Bo Derek.

What a dreadful fate for these two horses.  Am very sorry to all who are currently associated with both and also to their breeders and trainers and others who knew them before they went to India.
