In the 1951 San Pasqual H'cap, Your Host clipped heels with another horse and fell, breaking his right foreleg and shoulder. His will to live was so strong that his owners allowed Lloyds of London, the company that insured the horse, to purchase and save him. Your Host recovered and was sent to stud where he sired five time Horse of the Year KELSO. Your Host died in 1961.
