Apparently, RR passed away from an "apparent internal injury" during a workout 12/28/12, reported in a drf article on that date. I just now read this. RR was third in the 2010 Del Mar Futurity, a pre-Derby race and I've kept half an eye on his races since..l Mar
What happened to him? just noticed he's on the obituary report. Wow!

Start of the comeback trail...scheduled to run this Saturday at HP in an Optional Claiming Race at 7 1/2 furlong distance
6/06 SA 5F 58.60 bullet work
back on the worktab...three workouts so far...04/28 at SA 4F 49.60, 5/03 at SA 3F 35.80 and 5/10 6F 1:15.40
Entered in Saturday's San Fernando Stakes at 1 1/16 on Dirt. Should be at long odds but maybe return to dirt will help. Good to see they took him off turf races. Showed nothing in those races.
  • likin sparks · It's good to see him back on dirt but unless he puts a lot of effort into this he won't be any match for Tapizar, Irish Art, First Strike and "IF" Prayer For Relief shows up he'll have his hoofs full. · 1930 days ago
Has been entered into the Sir Beaufort Stakes.

  • jinlie01 · this will be a tough race period. IMO RR should've waited for an ALW or at least a dirt race from 7F to 1 1/16 max. · 1950 days ago
  • likin sparks · How much does he like turf? hmmm.... · 1945 days ago

  • jinlie01 · good question...do you think he can handle the turf..I know the last start on turf didn't turn out as well albeit against older horses. · 1953 days ago
  • likin sparks · You know I questioned the last two races especially coming off a long layoff, can he handle the turf at a mile, no I don't think so. I would like him to prove me wrong though but I think allweather is his best surface, then dirt. · 1952 days ago
Another 6F workout at SA..bullet work 1:13 flat
bullet work at SA for 6F today..1:12.20
  • Protagonist · good going, I hope that he can return to his oldself Soon! i cann't wait to see him improve off of this and that last start.Good going Team Cho! · 1973 days ago
Running this Sunday 8th Race at SA. J. Talamo to ride.
Looks well spotted for his return in the AlwOC race.
On the comeback trail. Entered in 1 Mile Allowance Optional Claiming at SA on 10/07. Victor Espinoza to ride. 10 horse field.
According to DRF: Cho’s horse Riveting Reason is nearing a comeback after being turned out in March with a hoof injury. He could start in coming weeks, Ayala said. Last year, Riveting Reason was third in two Grade 1 races – the Del Mar Futurity and Norfolk Stakes – before an eighth-place finish in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile.

  • Protagonist · Protagonist/jinlie: Thanks, for the updated info. like I said I do like him,it was unfortunate that he lost that nose decision ths past Spring to Anthony's Cross. · 2034 days ago
latest work 6f at SA dirt..1:14 flat.
Riveting Reason worked 3f this morning at Del Mar..posted 35.60...2nd fastest of day. Good start on comeback trail.
According to Raxon Cho Riveting Reason went through his first breeze earlier and all went perfectly. There is no published work, because the clockers could not get a time on him. Premier pegasus has been doing very well and is almost ready to fully start training. We are taking a lot time with him because we want to make sure he is 100% before we start training. Hopefully we will have him ready for the breeders cup, if not we will plan ahead into 2012.
According toRaxon Cho, stablemate riveting reason began training with an exercise rider this morning and will be working towards the breeders cup. Premier pegasus will begin training sometime next week.
Raxon Cho said that highly regarded 3-year-old colts Premier Pegasus and Riveting Reason are ready to resume training after injuries derailed them from the Triple Crown trail. “They are days away from returning,” said Cho. “We hope to have them ready to race at Santa Anita this fall.” Premier Pegasus won the Hollywood Prevue and San Felipe Stakes. Riveting Reason was second in the Robert Lewis Stakes…
