What the Horse Racing Nation is saying about Bonfire...

The former G2 Dante Stakes winner will be heading down under to race. Bonfire was sold on Tuesday at the Tattersalls Horses In Training Sale for $120,000 Guineas. He was bought by Johnny McKeever on behalf of Gai Waterhouse, who I'm assuming will train Bonfire in Australia, also.
Bonfire was gelded on Tuesday and will miss the rest of the 2012 season. Highclere Thoroughbred Racing's manager, Harry Herbert, said "We're just trying to do what's best for the horse and get him back to the animal that we know he is." Actually, now that he's been gelded, it should help with his issues of being a bit high strung. Plus, Bonfire's always been sort of a quirky horse, too. So hopefully the procedure will help him in that aspect, too?

  • AnnaK · Can you imagine that? Triple Crown winners on either side both in purple in white. If that were a movie we'd think it was so hokey. Camelot ran a great race. · 680 days ago ·

  • Mike in SB · The Triple Crown is not a big deal in England, I doubt that Camelot even runs in the St. Leger. This is the problem with having the English Triple Crown races spaced so far apart, by the time the St Legar comes around the 3 year olds are racing against older horses in the big European races. · 680 days ago ·
