I'm sure it's fine to have here.....it just not good when this thread surfaces.....I'll take the no news is good news attitude here..

I do think the warriors that put there life on the line for our entertainment Definitly deserves a thread like this......

Flats are so fragile

I think the purpose of the OP to start this thread was to memorialize the stars of the past who've most recently passed.

What is the purpose of this thread? All it does is give people another reason to stop betting horses....and give ammo to anti horse racing advocates

I really don't wanna come here and see these posts as there is never a good ending.......why not give a link to the breakdowns too and then
Well see who has the heart to watch it

These threads do no good for the game
This thread isn't just about horses who die while active in the game...also about horses we lose due to old age, etc...chill bro...

Baffert sure seems to get a free pass on horse deaths. Take a look at Take Control's PPs, then try to figure out how in the world this horse should have pointed for the Marathon.

The only person riding him is Paulick, everyone else, like you say, gives him a free pass.

100 percent fact.......public looks at him like a god with the white hair and always has his little son by his side....when his horses break down he gets a pass

Now meanwhile when a Lukas horse breaks down he catches all the heat

He and the owner will not live this one down easy , I have to agree
on that .
Take Control formerly Vallenzari was the first foal of Azeri a buyback of
over 7 million .
It's been awhile so many have forgotten this beautiful horse . I was surprised
to see he was back in action .

He seems to have more horses vanish from the radar than just break down and die. But when he had that rash of deaths, including Left Bank, he certainly took some heat if I remember right.

Formulaforsuccess died of cardiac arrest (according to equibase chart) trained by Rudy Rodriguez, the horse just keeled over and died while being eased at the top of the lane.

(Oct 18, Race 3, Belmont).
