For $8-10m in revenue, you'd reckon they could find someone to walk him around for a bit.


They were walking Danehill around for a bit, letting him have a pick, when he pulled/reared/fell,,,whatever he did,,and died as a result of that.  
Unless you are there to actually see it with your own eyes, you are always thinking  "how the hell did that happen "  ??   Or at least, I am.
Agree there. I'm not underestimating the 'freak' factor. I'm just a little perplexed that a joint with three stallions, two of them in the upper echelon of price and quality, would even have a walking machine.... I'm probably underestimating the scope of the regular walking job.

Either way, it's incredibly sad for all involved - not least the owners of the 150-odd mares he was due to serve.
