    Tincup, it sounds like you visited SB in person? If so, so cool, cool! Talk about the facility if you did. I have looked at facility from afar and thought it is wonderful.
  • No, no, no...My son lives up there. I havent been to seattle this year, everyones been busy. I was speaking of info written up by reporters , columnists and the like. Dan Ross published a first hand account, things like that. Just having fun.

    I looked at their website over the years, and again when Gary Stevens did some of his rehab there after knee replacement. Kath

    They're not rushing Shared Belief back. I expect he'll be back sometime in the spring, but they've said they want to let the horse tell them how he's doing.
  • Just saw that Shared Belief died? Can anyone confirm this?

    All I've seen are rumors but I'm worried sick about it. I'm staying up to date on Twitter. God I hope it's not true though.

    EDIT: Somebody said they've checked with the vet assistant, who said it's true, but that's not necessarily from a reliable source. I'm crying right now though.

    BH has left messages w/ @jimrome, @Alex_Solis_II, Dan Ward & Jerry Hollendorfer regarding Shared Belief rumors. Will do our best to update.
  • TVG apparently reported it on their channel but still nothing from his connections.
  • Most likely true then :(

    Makes me sick....

  • I didn't hear it myself, so they could have just been reporting that there were rumors. I'm trying to hang on to a sliver of hope...
  • "Just received confirmation from owners Alex Solis & Jim Rome that Shared Belief did in fact pass away today from colic. Condolences to all"

    I'm sobbing
  • Thoroughbred racing is a sport filled with the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. Some of the most thrilling and surreal moments of our entire lives have occurred in this sport. Unfortunately, today we have suffered our most devastating. We have lost Shared Belief. He seemed to display signs of Colic this morning so our vets rushed in to treat him. They immediately sent him to UC Davis so he could get the best medical attention available, as quickly as possible. Emergency Colic surgery was performed, but doctors were unable to save him. We are still awaiting results of an autopsy. We are all absolutely devastated. Shared Belief was a once in a lifetime horse. A champion, fighter and unbelievable talent who impacted and changed all of our lives. The little horse that feared no one and could do anything. He absolutely loved his job and to compete and run. As heartbreaking as this is, we all consider ourselves so fortunate to have been a part of this amazing animal’s life. He was a super horse from day one. He would end up winning 10 of 12 starts, including 5 G1’s and an Eclipse Award. The Big Horse was a champion in every sense of the word. There will never be another like Shared Belief. Our hearts are broken. RIP, Champ.
  • Damn, I hate colic. Poor Shared Belief. Too sad for words.
  • Horrible news.........my condolences to all of his connections.

    Oh No! Shared Belief was such a brave race warrior! He had so much to offer and he was so young...only 4 years old!

    I wish someone could find a preventative measure or better yet...a successful technique to overcome and CURE horses from this dreaded colic.

    Working on researching for Golden Girls and Old Friends Farm...I'm finding that many thoroughbreds have succumbed to colic in the cause of their untimely death. I am currently shocked and in disbelief...this is a very sad day indeed. :o(
