  1. Three years old and not raced? Makes me wonder if her “loving connections” didn’t see the speed they wanted during her workouts and decided to do something permanent about it.

    • A three year old is a good surgical candidate. Colic can be treated with surgical intervention. My guess is that the owners didn’t want to spend the money.
