Don't know if anyone else was watching the Breeder's Cup today. Lots of great races, culminating in the performance of his life by Curlin in the Classic. Unfortunately, George Washington pulled up early in the race and dislocated an ankle. Apparently it was an open fracture, according to the veterinarian on site. It could not be repaired, so the horse has been euthanized. Very sad.

The strange story about this horse is that he had been retired to stud last year, but he had fertility issues. So they decided to race him again. Now this.

RIP. He was a good horse. :(
