I'm not particularly religious but I'm a little uneasy about the sad demises of horses being announced on the R.I.P thread.

I suppose this is the best place to put horse news when a good one passes.

This morning I heard on http://tunein.com/radio/Sky-Sports-Radio-1017-s7004/
that Rough Habit had been euthanased in NZ.

He had poor sight from only one eye, and increasingly having hoof problems.
It made me search for those Straddie wins, the 1992 being his best, imv

This from the Youtube commentary:

Published on May 29, 2012
"Roughie" won 29 races from 1200 to 2400m,
including 11 Group Ones. Six of those were in
Queensland, where he won the
Stradbroke-Doomben Cup double not once
but twice then won the Doomben Cup a third time.
Hugely popular in Brisbane and, after his sixth
Group One there, a bar at Eagle Farm was
named after him. His other four Group Ones
were spread between Victoria, New South
Wales and his native New Zealand.



Thanks for the memories old horse   emthup    :rip:

Grand stayer Doriemus dies aged 24

Sunday 11 January 2015, 5:58pm

Doriemus, one of just 11 horses to complete the Caulfield-Melbourne Cups double in the same year, has died aged 24.

The horse was euthanised at Melbourne's Living Legends retirement farm after suffering a hoof injury.

He was raced by a group which included Terry Henderson who is now in partnership with Simon O'Donnell in OTI Racing which announced his death on Twitter.

"Very saddened by death of Doriemus as result of hoof injury. An exceptional horse who gave many enjoyment while racing and in retirement," OTI said.

"At 24 Doriemus had a wonderful life in retirement thanks to Living Legends, Wingara Farm and Werribee Vet Hosp - all for their great care."

Doriemus won two of his first three starts in New Zealand for Jim Gibbs and was sent to Lee Freedman in 1994, winning his first Australian start for his new trainer that year in Brisbane.

As a four-year-old he won just two races but came into his own the following season to claim the 1995 Cups double.

He was unplaced in both races the following year and suffered a bleeding attack in the Australian Cup in March 1997.

He bounced back in the spring to finish a distant second to Might And Power in the Caulfield Cup before running the big horse to a nose in the Melbourne Cup.

Ironically the pair later shared a paddock at Living Legends.

Doriemus was retired after he was unplaced in the 1998 Melbourne Cup with a record of nine wins and 12 placings from 44 starts and prize money of almost $3.6 million.

From the Herald Sun

Racing industry so much poorer as Group 1 winners Super Cool, Elite Belle and St Basil join the mighty Doreimus

    Nathan Exelby
    News Corp Australia Network
    January 14, 2015 8:00PM


RAILWAY Stakes winner Elite Belle on Wednesday had her name added to a sad list of casualties within the Australian racing industry this week.

Elite Belle died after suffering a heart attack on a flight from Perth to Melbourne on Wednesday morning.

She followed the deaths of Australian Cup winner Super Cool, Stradbroke hero St Basil and Caulfield-Melbourne Cups winner Doriemus this week.

Laming Racing reported 17-year-old St Basil “died peacefully” in his paddock at Jacobs Well, south of Brisbane, on Tuesday night.

“We will never forget what he did for us,” the Laming Racing Twitter account read.

Doriemus had spent much time at Living Legends alongside numerous other Melbourne Cup winners during his retirement, before a paddock accident that led to a hoof injury claimed his life at the age of 24 on Sunday.

Doriemus was the third of Lee Freedman’s five Melbourne Cup winners, scoring in 1995 and almost winning the race a second time in 1997, when he was nosed out in a deceptive finish by Might And Power.

Super Cool, one of a select group of three-year-olds to win the Australian Cup, died after complications to an infection in his leg.

Trained by Mark Kavanagh, Super Cool is best remembered for his tremendous duels with Fiveandahalfstar.

The five-year-old raced 19 times for four wins and more than $1.5 million in prizemoney.

Super Cool last raced in the spring where he finished down the track in the Turnbull Stakes.

Six-year-old mare Elite Belle won the Group 1 Railway Stakes (1600m) and the Group 2 Cox Stakes (2100m) during the recent Perth carnival.

Elite Belle’s campaign in the east was believed to culminate with an appearance at The Championships in Sydney.

She raced 25 times for 10 wins and prizemoney of more than $1.4 million.

St Basil’s respectable record also included placings in Queenland’s 2004 Stradbroke Handicap and Hollindale Cup. The mighty grey amassed $1.1 million in prizemoney.

I still think he'd be a chance in Sydney in the Autumn.
Even accounting for being deceased, he'd be dropping a fair bit in class which would offset that.

Did not realise HAY LIST had been put down on Tuesday 3rd February.
Sad ending to such a great horse.

We saw the best of him in his gallant placings to the great Black Caviar.
In my view they were equals in spirit and in heart. Both champions because of their will to win.

From 28 career starts he won 15 races for $2.55 mil.

The Bonecrusher Song

Now here’s a little story
That  we think should be told
About a famous Kiwi
Who is only three years old –
He crushed his shoulder badly
Thought he’d never make it back
His courage saw him through
And now he’s stormin down the track

BONECRUSHER – GOIN FOR THE GAP
BONECRUSHER – COULD BE THE GREATEST SINCE PHAR LAP
BONECRUSHER – CHAMPION HORSE IS HE
BONECRUSHER – HE’S THE PRIDE OF ELLERSLIE


Sired by Pag Asa
Te Kuiti born and bred
A lively chestnut gelding
With his stable nick name Red
With Rider Gary Stewart
Together they can fly
And when-ere they take the track
Well you can here the cry


Went across the Tasman
And he won the Tancred Stakes Showed them in the Derby there
That he’s got what it takes
When Gary said get goin
The Crusher forged ahead
What happened to them Aussies?
Well, that’s better left unsaid


Although our song is ending Our hero’s just begun
He’ll go to many places
Many races he will run
And when his racings over
We’ll look back and all agree
For sure he had a great big heart
The pride of Ellerslie.

Very sad end for the very good mare from Port Macquarie today  :tears:

From the stewards report for Race 5 at Rosehill.

Nuclear Class – which compounded quickly after leading and finished distanced, was badly
distressed in the mounting yard and suffered a catastrophic collapse when being taken back
to the race day stalls via the course proper. App. B Loy stated that his mount commenced to
weaken quickly at the entrance to the straight and he elected to ease the mare down over the
final 200m. Racing NSW Senior Official Veterinarian Dr C Suann, who was on hand in the
mounting yard, diagnosed Nuclear Class as suffering from cardiac arrhythmia on returning to
the enclosure. Dr Suann reported that the mare became unsteady on its feet and, in his
opinion, suffered acute cardiac failure. Nuclear Class was sent to the University Teaching
Veterinary Hospital, Camden, for autopsy and blood sample taken from the mare will be sent
for analysis.
Trainer Mr T Morton stated that Nuclear Class had never shown any distress
after any of its races and had no treatments or examinations leading into today's race. He
added that the mare travelled down overnight from Port Macquarie and ate up this morning.
Mr Morton was asked to produce stable veterinary records to the Stewards. The inquiry was
adjourned pending the receipt of same.

What a shock!

What a champ. Won Group 1s in 4 mainland capitals and a Group2 in WA.

Won Group 1s in England, Japan and Singapore.

Made 3 trips to Royal Ascot.

1 win, 2 2nds, 1 3rd and 2 4ths in his 6 races at Royal Ascot.

I doubt we'll see anything like that again.

RIP TT  :sad:
