    Hovis Diary Friday July 11, 2014 (Horse and Hounds)
    Our dear friend and yard patriarch Wise Old Tom has passed over the bridge. He was 24 years old and his wonderful mum decided it was time to let him be free. As always when I lose a friend I write a little poem so this one is for you Tom

    Goodnight Mister Tom
    One last time, close your aged eyes
    For in this sleep, you’re forever young
    Galloping free across the skies

    All of us, we will remember
    And think of you each and every day
    For when we hear words of wisdom
    We’ll think “that’s what Tom would say”

    And although we’ll miss you, our aged friend
    We’ll try our very hardest not to be sad
    And in our hearts be so very thankful
    For the amazing inning that you had

    Even at the end your mum so loved you
    So more than you could ever know
    Because despite her sadness, she released you
    And with all her love, let you go

    So enjoy the heavenly grasslands
    With all the horses who’ve ever died
    And know one day in the future
    We’ll all graze there, side by side

    In loving memory of Tom.
    Hovis

    Second horse in two races euthanized at Del Mar.
    Longview Drive broke down early in Cougar Handicap and was put down.

    Delta Princess (2/17/1999 - 8/5/2014)
    Pedigree: A.P. Indy (1989) x Lyphard's Delta (1990) by Lyphard (1969)
    Earnings: $740,918 (30 starts: 11 wins, 6 places, 2 shows)
    Cause of Death: She was euthanized due to a degenerative stifle condition. She was carrying a foal at the time to Awesome Again-CAN (1994)
    Fun Facts: Not only good on the race track, she really shined in the breeding shed. She was the dam of champion filly, Royal Delta (by Empire Maker), Empire Way and Carnival Court.

    Sadly, this beautiful girl was only 15 years old.

    This one is going to be extra special, QueenZFan22 was able to see this horse in person and spend time with him. So this death is extra hard to bear.

    Schnell Flitzen (February 19, 2009 - February 1, 2014)
    Pedigree: Prohibitionist x Flash's Dream Girl (Dance Brightly)
    Earnings: $3,900
    Cause of Death: Broke down in race 4 at Turfway Park. This was his 2nd start, he broke his maiden January 5th 2014.

    This photo is QueenZ's that she posted in the Horse Racing injuries and fatalities thread that she took of Flitzen. (atleast, i THINK that is what was said about the photo)

  • Ludicrous (February 3, 2012 - August 23, 2014)
    Pedigree: Medaglia d'Oro x Victory Ride (Seeking the Gold)
    Earnings: I guess he didnt earn anything really considering the fact today was his racing debut....
    Cause of Death: Broke down after bumping into a rival down the stretch in race 4 at Saratoga. He was making a nice bid for 2nd or 3rd place when he broke down. Jockey tried to pull him up and he bumped into a rival going past him, jockey then fell off him and Ludicrous went off to the side away from camera view. He was euthanized on the track.

    Inchila (April 6, 2011 - August 7, 2014)
    Pedigree: ( Dylan Thomas (IRE) - Inchiri (GB), by Sadler's Wells)
    Earnings: Im not really sure, was alot i assume cuz she won alot of races.
    Cause of Death: Put down after complications from an injury she sustained in the Ribblesdale Stakes at Royal Ascot. She fractured her pelvis in the Ribblesdale Stakes, and then later it was found to be more severe than initially thought. The fracture ended up going right down into her hip joint, thus the decision to euthanize.
