Happy 12th Birthday Cloudy's Knight

Cloudy's Knight and Rosemary Homemeister capture the 2009 Kentucky Cup Turf at Kentucky Downs
Cloudy’s Knight, the S J Stables’ color bearer whose biggest victory came in 2007’s Grade I Canadian International at Woodbine Race Course but who is remembered locally for his numerous courageous performances in Arlington’s Grade III Stars and Stripes, celebrated his 12th birthday Wednesday during a party held in his honor at Country Ridge Stables in nearby Mundelein, Illinois.
 
“He’s as happy as ever,” reported Christine Gabriel, Arlington’s former television personality who adopted Cloudy’s Knight following his retirement from racing in late 2010.  “He still enjoys his ‘Guiness’ every day.  His trainer Laura Stern has been teaching him to be a jumper for less than a year now and he’s already clearing three-foot jumps.”
 
Gabriel, wife of former Arlington racing secretary Frank Gabriel, returned from her winter residence in Dubai in mid-April and is enjoying excellent health.

Glad to know he's doing great. Just read an article about his sire Lord Avie, who is still going strong at the age of 34
That's great! It's so good to see how happy he is. He definitely has a special place in my heart, thats for sure.
