Ran in a G1 late Sept... he would only need to feed him & muck out his box.

Did Williams pull out to early? Had the run of the race and elected to let the horse stride out 3 deep when waiting would've been a better option? Perhaps?

First race I saw  live today. Arod was in the perfect position but just started to get his head up a little so Williams eased him out. Losing move. Decision making affected by lack of confidence perhaps?

Didn't see it but apparently trialled like a slug. Surprised by the market support for him. Looks cooked.

Waller said Friday they'd been teaching him to relax off the back of his front running effort at Flem in the Spring but on his work/trials, may've overdone it. Put me off him immediately.

Just looking it up now his two trials he lost by 6.5 and 8L respectively. Not sure he wants to be a racehorse anymore.

Don't laugh, I actually thought that in the parade ring, he seemed to be walking a bit funny behind, like he was trying to widen in a bow legged way, and I instantly thought, hes getting squeezed!

Listed as being 'Exported to GB on 31 May 2017'

Is he retired or will he be racing in the U.K again?
