    Oh for God's sake. That poor stallion.

    I wonder if animals pay off kharma too. If so, he's on the accelerated plan.

    Geeze.

    That poor horse, I hope he is somewhere safe. I wonder how much
    he is insured for.....

    I have a 2007 Capone colt on the farm and he is a sweetie.

    I had that same thought, and can't help but wonder. Hopefully he is being well cared for, where ever he is.

    MORE drama? Was there drama before he was stolen?

    Poor boy- I hope that they find him. His people must be so worried.

    Does the whole report seem a bit...weird....to anyone? Perhaps it's just the writer of the article, I dunno.

    Stallion worth 'millions' of dollars. Really? Guard dogs happily where they belong when theft allegedly took place. No tire tracks? How would a regular joe be able to immediately identify which tire tracks were employee trucks and which might be a thief's? Ransom is the only reason the horse would've been stolen? Nothing related to, gee, maybe massive quantities of drugs seized from stallion's owner? And seriously, we all know how lucrative black market breeding can be.

    Just sort of reads like a bad mystery.

    I sure hope Capone is OK somewhere.

    Chris, I too think something is odd.
    It just does not add up and when you put in the "past issues" it makes it even a bit more hard to digest.

    My first reaction/thought was...how long before an insurance company will pay up ("Millions") for a stolen horse? Or loss of use, for a breeding stallion, particularly? Anyone know?

    That was also my first thought as insurance does pay on stolen horses. But then I thought I was being unfair, but to be totally honest, that IS what I was thinking too!

    Man, Doug should be someone's presidential campaign PR person, 'cuz, boy can he spin!! LOL

    That story was just bizarre...either a typo or he thinks the horse was stolen in the middle of the afternoon? Worth millions? 250K in earnings? (really???) No idea at all of what or who could be behind it?

    OMG. I feel soo sorry for Capone. Not at all for Doug. Give me a break.

    Oh, and the whole insurance angle makes me sick to my stomach. If it turns out to be an insurance scam, I hope they fry Doug.

    How much "blow" did Spink get busted with again?

    I guess if I was a drug lord, I might be a little angry. I would also guess that I might want my "investment" back.

    Just sayin ...

    I hope where ever Capone is, that he's okay.

    Hmm, stolen in the middle afternoon from a busy barn in the middle of breeding season?

    Can you say insurance fraud?

    Well with all the hype, there will be a movie to follow shortly I am sure.* Sad that a life is involved.

    A movie you say? Yes, perhaps one that will only be available in those little stores with the paper on the windows where all the customers wear large hats and trench coats.

    I dunno, just can't see it on a CBC double bill: TONIGHT "Big Spender" & "Capone; The Life and Times"

    Sounds like an insurance scam.


    That poor horse, I hope he comes out of this okay.
