May the smoke of rex ellsworth's torment ascend forever. he now looks across the gulf between heaven and hell over to heaven where Iron Reward is being fed by the righteous and Swaps is being petted instead of punched hard in the face regularly by ellsworth. There is no escape from the darkness of hell for ellsworth, but his horses escaped from the hell ellsworth made for them. Todays abusers and starvers will never escape the eyes of God. The righteous man cares for the life of his animal. Faith in Jesus counts for righteousness. Jesus is the door out of hell, the agent for change, the line in the sand, our repairer. ellsworth is in hell now because he assumed he was perfect already and refused the repair provided by Jesus.

There was a nice thread of Swaps. His dam Iron Reward who was royally bred by Beau Pere out of a nice daughter of War Admiral. While she was not much on the race track, she was a great broodmare and also was the dam of another Broodmare of the Year. She was bred back to Khaled the sire of Swaps on several occasions. The Shoe was a stakes winner of the Del Mar Derby. Swaps' full sister Track Medal was broodmare of the year and was the dam of Outing Class and O'Hara among others. Like Magic was another full sibling who was a stakes winner in California. One would think that such a broodmare would be immune to abuse. Sadly that was not the case. She was found lying dead in a paddock on the Ellsworth Ranch, having succumbed to dehydration and starvation. Over 130 horses were found, many dead most ematiated and forced to eat their own feces. Sports Illustrated did a piece on this and at the end they wrote "that this granddaughter of War Admiral and the dam of Swaps deserved better." Indeed she did.
  • Buckpasser · I realize that I posted some of this before. I don't want people to forget that while we laud her great son Swaps, the plight of even a great broodmare like Iron Reward is not uncommon in this sport. What made the situation with Iron Reward more horrific, it that it was quite clear from the investigation of this ranch and the subsequent investigation of Ellsworth's other ranches, that the horses, particularly the older broodmares, like Iron Reward were being purposely starved to death as Ellsworth's son lived there at the time and several other animals were well fed. The California Horsemen's Board took over all the costs of the investigation and the care and upkeep of the horses that survived as this entire matter was huge black eye to industry. · 480 days ago
Iron Reward, grandaughter of War Admiral and great grandaughter of Man O' War broodmare of the year 1955,
