That's a great photo!
And I got to massage his gums...an activity he adores! Was shocked they let me see him!
I hope his surgery proves successful. Seems like new connections are taking their time in bringing him along post surgery. Any updates, Tap?
Love him...I will cheer him on one last time next week in the Arima Kinen next week...
Perhaps New Zealand's greatest sire and certainly one of Australia's top sires, sire of sires and sire of broodmares, calls it a career---at the age of 27! Sire of three Melbourne Cup winners and four Cox Plate winners and in total 43 G1 winners, the likes of Octagonal, Might and Power, Reset and Jezabeel. His daughters most recently have produced superstars such as Atlantic Jewel and It’s a Dundeel. A well deserved pension!
I'm a big fan of Setsuko--been following his long layoff and return to training and recent works. Fingers crossed--seems a really tall order for him to return here in graded stakes company. But rooting loudly regardless.
Update!! St Nicholas Abbey remains in great form despite the ongoing complications of laminitis and indeed from this short video is walking as good as can be expected. We would hope to see progress in the laminitic foot over the next few weeks (hoping that he continues to grow the hoof), if this happens rehabilitation of the fractured leg can then progress. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=624935250902865&set=vb.287027754693618&type=2&theater
Triple dead heat was amazing! What a finish!
I think he'll make a great stable pony! Glad he's retiring sound.
Leaves at the top of his game!
