R.I.P Intense Holiday you'll be missed :(
RIP boy.
When I heard the very sad news about his passing, It brought back another wonderful athlete who left us way to early. He also fought a good hard long fight and lost to laminitis - His name is Barbaro. It is so sad that they leave us so young. The one BIG drawback to loving/enjoying these big racing guys and gals.
RIP Big Guy! Taken away from us way to early. We will never forget you. Now you join many others who have left us.
RIP
R.I.P :(

  • UnionRagsRules · hearnimal, I am not a ver religous person. But sometimes God needs them more than we do. I'm sure he's up there running around on the big track in the sky. RIP Intense Holiday · 199 days ago
That is so sad. I'm so sorry.
Rest in peace...especially hard loss being a talented son of Harlan's Holiday ;(
  • goblin · Very sad indeed, as he was expected to recover from the fracture and stand at stud. · 199 days ago
Now retired after his career-ending condylar fracture.

  • Northport · If the vet advises that the horse doesn't race again I think you can call it career ending · 215 days ago
  • goblin · tcg, Pre-op it was thought he might be able to race again; Dr. Hogan's advice post-op stated otherwise. IHA had a tendon lesion/early bowed tendon. That injury is nothing like a condylar fracture. · 215 days ago
per starlight racing fb page, intense holiday came out of his work with condylar fracture in right, front leg. being sent to vet.

  • rafirox · It was not rocket science after his LA Derby he does NOT want distance. Anyone competent could see that. Travers would be a mess for him. They should find a spot from 8 to 8.5 furlongs in an AlwOC in September ; depending on how that goes, point towards some 8 furlong (roughly) races to close out the season. · 217 days ago
  • rafirox · And I agree with Sullivan. The Belmont would wipe this fothamucka down. This is a injury he SHOULD be able to recover from fully and hopefully without difficulty. · 217 days ago
Rider off him after his work immediately. He was walked off the track and was headed to a NJ clinic to repair a condylar fracture to his right foreleg. 2 hours ago Per DRF Grening.

Pletcher on fox sports 1 just said Intense Holiday could run in the 3rd leg of TC
Here is his workout video (to the left side are all of today's workouts to view).... http://www.hrtv.com/videos/derby-workout-intense-holiday-and-we-miss-artie-42714/?VideoCategoryId=0

  • SSilence86 · Oh sorry. Thought that was a bit weird with the link ^^. Makes sense. My opinion? He galloped out nicely. Seemed willing and happy, ears pricked. · 245 days ago
  • Sullivan · Work was made to look better than it was with We Miss Artie. Head action indicates tired at the end and was running really loose. Maybe underneath, but I don't see how he takes to 10f on the long stretch of Churchill Downs · 245 days ago
Had the best of the works today per DRF Privman- Intense Holiday 1/2 :48.65 final 1/4 :23.61 with big out 1:01.36 up 1:15.39

Going to go with this boy as my Derby pick after thinking long and hard. Ride on Curlin is right up there too though.

  • zxswordxz · he need speed in the front runner and there is lots of it. so his odds of taking it all is good. he will have to catch California chrome thou... · 246 days ago
  • coyne.kaylor · Gutsy call Ruffian.... But if Pletcher has taken care of those crossfiring issues, he could be a threat. · 246 days ago
Really think he's sitting on a big one.

  • Roses4U · Let's hope a nice enema helps him out with that problem. · 249 days ago
  • tmallios1 · Ruffian i do not think he has a strong chance of winning. But i do agree that this horse will run a big race. Personally,i think he is the legitimate closer in this race. Lookng for a 3rd or 4th place finish. At nice odds can help make a juicy superfecta return. · 249 days ago
