yep-- Kip Deville-- his retirement was announced yesterday due to complications following two colic surgeries and laminitis stemming from those surgeries.

yikes! Poor Kippy.

I just have to say what a pleasure he was to work with and be around-- I would breed to him in a heartbeat-- nice mind, good longevity at the track, super disposition--just an overall really nice horse!!!

CJ is one of my favorites. While I'm sad his racing career is over, he had a good run and my understanding is that he has a hard time maintaining condition (racing takes a lot out of him). On that note, I'm glad he's finishing up sound.
