Trainer Dale Romans confirms the morning death of Dullahan, he was unable to be saved from colic. More news will come later.
Just heard he was retired due to a tendon injury?
This girl is proving now that finishing so close to Black Caviar wasn't just because of Luke Nolens riding error... It was no fluke.
Absolutely fantastic mare. A lot of talent and now undefeated in 9 starts. Raced from 5 furlongs to 1 1/4 miles with 3 G1 wins and 3 G2 wins and over 1 million dollars in earnings. Mark has said he is considering running her on Saturday September 21st in the G1 Underwood Stakes (1800m) at Caulfield. Her main goal is the Cox Plate. I have no doubts about this girl, she is just amazing and getting better with every run!
That hasn't been decided yet, and it is awesome!
A STATUE of Ruffian!? I am absolutely and completely beyond belief happy to share this news! I have been speaking to Alexa King for quite a while now. For those who don't know, Alexa is the woman who created the amazing Statue of Barbaro. Who has agreed to create a sculpture of the Great Ruffian as well! They are working on a proposal to get funding set up for the project, which will, with every $25.00 donation, the donor will receive a Bronze resin Ruffian medallion by Alexa, signed and numbered! The funding site should be set up within a week or 2, and if we get 4000 donations that will take the donations to $100,000! So when it all gets set up, I will be sharing the links on 3 particular pages on Facebook, I will be the first to post about it, apart from Alexa I am sure! So hopefully it will get around but make sure you let people know and tell ALL your friends about this amazing and long over due project!

"Then your life took a turn, and you fell and it hurt, but you're still that girl, and you're gonna change this world" Here is another Ruffian video, my first in almost a year. Personally, I think the song is perfect for Ruffian. "Your story's not over, it's still being told" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kT6nGz9Mlxc
Just thinking about this... With horses such as Animal Kingdom "flopping" (No offence intended) at Royal Ascot, just shows how difficult it is for a foreign horse to win there, which I think just really makes Black Caviars win there even more amazing.
