Noooooo!! I'm so bummed! But very glad they caught the bone chip and suspensory damage in time... :( Definitely explains why she hasn't been herself. :(

How did Hollendorfer and his crew miss that?

Glad she'll be ok. Will miss seeing her run.

I was really hoping to see her race one last time in the BC. Shows how gutsy she is, to still finish 2nd in that condition. All class and on the gas. Wishing her the best in her retirement. Her epic race with Beholder last year will remain one of the best races I've ever seen.

Glad Porter sent her to Bramladge...looks like Songbird and Stellar Wind will safely meet each other in the Keeneland November sale instead of the BC Distaff. TJ

Two greats leaving the track before it is too late ...
They gave us some fine memories, and I hope they are well treated in the next phase of their lives.
