I was so pulling for him, Graham Motion, and the rest of his contacts. What a class act!

It totally sucks.

Was out at Fair Hill on Sunday specifically to watch his workout. He went lovely. James (regular ex rider) is a friend. And all were happy as clams.

BUT.... lame is lame. Timing of it sucks, but glad that Dean got to look him over and that he's being checked out at New Bolton.

My pick, too, and the Hound Blog (http://houndwelfare.wordpress.com/2011/04/28/way-back-when-joseph-b-thomass-huntland-kennels/) Hunch Bet for the Derby.

*sigh*

Love this horse.

So sorry to hear this! Condolences to all the connections - hope this is just a blip to an otherwise outstanding career, albeit this is a big one. Now have to find another favorite...

I've been out of the derby loops worse than ever this year, as I've been stuck in hell... or small-town Texas...

But--

Isn't Animal Kingdom still pointing towards Saturday? He's no Toby's Corner, but there's still a chance for you to root for Motion if no one else.

Was my pick too.

His owner delivered my brother when he was born and my 2 week old daughter was delivered by a doctor in his owner's son's office. They have lots of TB pics in the office.

Was rooting for the home town favorite. :-(
