Sat here crying over Chriselliam. Its really hit me hard, she was barely three years old. We've lost so many good horses this year and the end of 2013. They're so strong and yet so fragile.

I was absolutely stunned to hear the news, too. To me, she was by far the most amazing two-year-old filly I had seen last year and better than most of the colts (barring Honor Code, I don’t think anyone could top that kind of magic or at least the hold he has over me). It was just a freakish thing, to lose her over something seemingly so small. Yes, it reminds us how fragile horses are, that something as small as an infection could end their lives.
Rest in peace, Chriselliam. Losing you long before your time was a huge huge blow to international horse racing.
