I don't think anyone knows the cause of death. The results of the necropsy have not been made public yet.

Exercise-Induced Pulmonary Hemorrhage, aka "bleeding" in racing parlance.

Bleeders, even very dramatic bleeders, don't present like that. Not every bleeder shows blood running from the nostrils, but most with a very profuse bleed do. They also don't stagger and go down without preliminary symptoms. The really bad bleeders that I've seen have difficulty catching their breath because of the amount of blood occluding the airway, and they are in notable distress.

Exercise Induced Pulmonary Hemorrhage, bleeding in the lungs found most often in racehorses.

From Xctry's post, doesn't sound related, but guess we will have to wait for the necropsy.

Such a loss :cry:

Ooops, posting at the same time. What she said^^

According to Eric's teleconference today, it was a aortic aneurysm.

Aortic Rupture is what killed him.

Aortic Aneurysm is a step along the way, but not the same as a rupture.

Not even remotely close to being the same. Why did this need it's own thread?

Article: What is an aortic rupture? (http://www.horsetalk.co.nz/news/2011/11/070.shtml)

An aortic rupture is a rare but deadly problem in horses.

What difference if it has it's own thread? A person has a legitimate question. She got her answer. Sheesh.

Just because someone has "schoolmaster" status (which means all they do all day is read every single post and have to comment on nearly all of them) doesn't give them a right to be RUDE when someone asks a question.

:no:

Nice way to act to newer posters.

BTW - I'm not a troll. I HAVE A LIFE and have better things to do than be on message boards all day long.
