Ohhhawww! Shoot! He was pulled up in the backstretch at the Gulfstream 12/26/14 allowance race. Anyone know what happened? Is he OK?
If you want to see Cigar, he is currently in the Hall of Champions at the Kentucky Horse Park according to their website: http://www.kyhorsepark.com./equine-theme-park/walking-barn-tour/hall-champions/cigar

Thank you for the update, goblin. It's good to know he's relatively OK after the fall. It was so hard to tell on the video what happened to him and Ortiz after they fell. Did Christina mention Jose Ortiz's condition?
kay.robinett (HRN member) found a Zenyatta site which said Canadian Winner suffered a fatal injury and Appealing Alex was OK after being vanned off.
CD MSW (5/3/2014-R13) - I hope Jon is OK after the sad breakdown of Canadian Winner. I haven't found any news about it so I choose to believe he's OK.
kay.robinett kindly replied to Canadian Winner's file: "From what was said on the Zenyatta site - sadly, Canadian Winner suffered a fatal injury. RIP. Appealing Alex was vanned off but is said to be OK. I do not know the source of the information which was posted there."
Well, I thank you for the information. I was very afraid that that would be the end result because of how quickly Jon Court pulled him up on the rail. Jon never would have done something so dangerous in the middle of the pack unless he had no other choice. I have added the race below and added the CD page that has a video of the race for those of you who wish to see what we are talking about. It's very good news if Appealing Alex is OK. Thank you for sharing the info, Kay. Appreciated.
