This whole deal has really been great publicity for New Vocations. I'm not much of a fan of Zayat and his folks, but I do think donating Z Fortune was a good move on their part.

I agree - have seen a lot of credit taken by owners for something that others frankly arranged and worked at to make happen. But so happy for the horse, and I'm a fan of Carolyn on HRTV.

That sounds like a win/win. Cool that she exercised his sire when he was on the track. :yes:

Who the heck is Carolyn Conley in relation to New Vocations? I just wrote them about a standardbred that I was trying to help place as a result of a difficult pregnancy of the owner and they told me they could not acept more, I got a boiler plate response showing that Dot Morgan had not even read the body of the ad. They had just gotten back from Rolex and they just get all of these requests all of the time, etc. I guess the standardbred was not enough of a celebrity? Then Dot told me on the basis of the photograph that I sent that the mare was lame because she showed overdeveloped muscles in the loin? The mare is sound as a dollar. I have to say, I was not impressed. The only thing she really offered was to send the message to two people in the network.

So sad to report that Z Fortune colicked recently. He did not make it.

That is sad.

Oh, no. I was wondering how he was doing. Think I read somewhere she had sent him out to be trained. Wondered how he was adjusting to accepting another occupation having been so successful on the track.
