So gutted upon hearing the news of her death (she suffered a heart attack on the gallops yesterday). She was obviously very much cared for by those closest to her when she was alive and it's very touching to see the tribute paid to her on her trainer's Facebook page today.

This horse doesn't run how long? Something about two years. Why they don't retire him and make him a stallion with this brilliant pedigree?
The daughter of Frankel had colic surgery yesterday and is recovering at Juddmonte Farms in the UK. According to Juddmonte racing manager, Lord Teddy Grimthorpe, she will not be sent back into training until late summer/early autumn, but Grimthorpe did say she was doing well post-surgery.
Honor Code you were a great closer ! Might have even been the Kentucky Derby winner or perhaps Triple Crown winner but you needed space between races..... but no matter you are a great horse
I don't mean this comment to sound like I'm saying Winter is better than Churchill, because in no way, shape, form, or fashion do I believe that. But when you consider the races that Churchill rolled through last season, I.E., the listed Chesham Stakes at Ascot, G3 Tyros Stakes, G2 Futurity Stakes, & G1 National Stakes in Ireland, & G1 Dewhurst Stakes at Newmarket, and then consider that Winter went to Newmarket having ran 3 times in maiden company before getting off the snide, and then once in the G3 Irish 1000 Guineas Trial where she was beaten by Hydrangea, her completing the English/Irish 1000 Guineas double may actually be more impressive than Churchill completing the English/Irish 2000 Guineas double. And lest we forget, Aidan O'Brien didn't even take possession of this filly until late November after the retirement of trainer David Wachman, who initially trained Winter, so O'Brien had much less time to work with her. I guess I'm saying Churchill completing the English/Irish 2000 Guineas double was expected, but I don't think Winter completing the English/Irish 1000 Guineas double was, or at least not until she won the English half of the equation, IMO.
Finished 9th yesterday in race 9 at Santa Anita on the turf.
Patch. So glad everyone is overlooking him. And I'm also gonna look at senior investment who was just getting going in the Preakness and also epicharis
First this horse never ran in a grade 1, second did not even win in a grade 2 race at less than a mile & a quarter. The trainer never won a grade 1 race over the last 3 years, only won very few grade 3 & grade 2 races. The owner seems to have few good horses.Is this on of them? Not for me, I'll pass
