I didn’t know ( or remember) either! He is one lucky and smart boy, he’s with someone who understands him and loves him dearly!

I didn’t realize they had opened an Old Friends in Japan?! I get their newsletters and just don’t remember reading about it.

Daaher pensioned to Old Friends 

Retired from racing in 2008 following an ankle injury, the Canadian-bred son of Awesome Again out of the Canadian stakes winner Irish Cherry, was best known for his upset win over the heavily favored Midnight Lute in the 2007 GR1 Cigar Mile at Aqueduct.

In his two seasons on the track, Daaher collected earnings of $455,163 under trainer Kiaran McLaughlin, and won both the Cigar Mile and the GR2 Jerome Handicap. He retired with 4 wins and 2 thirds from 9 starts.

Originally standing at Shadwell’s Nashwan Stud in Lexington, Daaher was relocated to Circle H Farms, Abbeville, LA in 2019 before being pensioned.

"We're grateful to Shadwell for allowing us to care for this great son of the late Adena Springs-Old Friends stallion, Hall of Famer, Awesome Again,” said Old Friends President Michael Blowen. “He accomplished so much in his brief career. I know his fans will be excited to see him."

I receive an email about this! Enjoy your retirement Daaher...

A little off subject, I found in my "horse boxes" a large book I sent for about Old Friends a number of years ago. Quite nice, indeed.
