Of course plenty of people would like to own a horse like him. That doesn't make him a star. We will now wait for all the urgers to start flogging him as a Stallion. Its called "marketing " and open to as much embellishment as you think the majority of people would find plausible. I have simply stated the facts. The horse never won a race against anything but his own age. In fact he never even ran a place against anything but his own age group. Who knows why he is being retired . Is he genuinely not capable of racing again or are they just trying to protect his stud value before he dents it again ? Can't keep blaming jockeys and course managers forever can you.
They are only the facts as you see them. He only raced all aged horses twice.
Read any of my comments, no blaming going on from me.
I think there were genuine excuses in The Lightning and if John O"Shea says he couldn't put his hoof on the ground after The TJ, I believe it.
I'm sure J Mac and O'Shea were bitterly disappointed after The TJ.
Not surprised the first comment on here after his retirement was a pot.
