$2.8 million earner, 4x Breeder's Cup runner, recently retired AG has a new career! He looks like he'll be pretty good at it too! http://www.youtube.com/user/WestPointTBreds?feature=g-high-u
  • SSilence86 · I have always liked him. I wish him luck in his new career, and I look forward to seeing him on the track · 621 days ago
Awesome Gem, who earned the biggest win of his illustrious career in the 2010 Hollywood Gold Cup, will be paraded between races Saturday, Nov. 24 at Betfair Hollywood Park. Retired September 21 at age 9, Awesome Gem, who has called Betfair Hollywood Park home for more than six years, will appear between the fourth and fifth races on the second day of the Turf Festival.

A testament to consistency and durability, Awesome Gem will be going in the Longacres Mile this Saturday at Emerald Downs. He won the race last year, and I hope he can find his way back into the winner's circle. I really admire this guy and wish him a fast and safe trip on Saturday.

  • LongLiveBigRed · It was awkward but funny watching the connections for the dq'd horse (I think it was Positive Response) in the winner's circle accepting the trophy while the inquiry sign was still up. Then the announcement was made, the numbers were changed and they had to give it back and were shuffled off while Awsome Gem's connections were brought back. · 854 days ago
  • AnnaK · Oh that's painful. Can you imagine? You think you've won millions, then someone grabs the cheque out of your hand and moves you out the door. Then shuts it. · 854 days ago
Connections are considering the SF Mile at GGF at the end of the month.
Won his first race of the year. You watch Baze getting him into position and coming on, watch him trotting back , and he's as magnificent as any of our beautiful young Olympiads preparing for May 5th. He is magnificent. Owners, trainers & jocks like this doing well by horses like this are the best thing about racing.
Has been entered into an Allowance race at Golden Gate on 4/12/12 race 3
Glad to hear he is healthy and ready to return to racing! He is great for the sport and the industry who ever said US horses are less durable?
How is this handsome little guy doing? Hope he makes a strong return!! Love this horse!!!
  • ChrisWatchingponies · His videos are up on YouTube. Awesome Gem is doing great and they are getting him ready for the 2012 season. Yes, he's an awesome gem this 9-yo warrior. · 956 days ago
Love this horse!
Awesome Gem is a treat because he just keeps racing and the public keeps his name in their mind. We need horses that race more than 2 years.
  • RamonDimas · i agree he's like 9 years old and he still racing in G1 races!!!now thats a horse!! · 1044 days ago
  • shores · Larry and Ramon, I agree... we need good durable horses like him in times when the thoroughbred breed is getting less and less durable. AND he's coming back next year.... not too many 9 year olds out there stil. Good for him!! · 1044 days ago
I love this horse. He loves to run and loves people. Just go by his stall sometime.
So sad Awesome Gem won't be competing this year in a Breeders Cup race.....but why can't they just retire this horse and let him live out the rest of his life in luxury? I think he has done enough!! I just love this horse and would hate to see something bad happen :( Love ya Gem!
I love this guy! :)
Are they pointing AG to both races? The Goodwood and the Gold Cup?
awesome gem obviously still has it in him to perform and do very well. refreshing to see a horse well past 4 still gettin' 'er done.
Is there anyone that doesn't just love this horse? Eight years old and going strong. Four wide on the final turn, carrying 120 pds....second to a very nice run by Headache.
Does anyone have any recent information on Awesome Gem? I haven't heard a word about him since he ran in the BC Marathon in November. Would love to know how he's doing and if his connections plan to run him this year at 8.
