Editor’s Note: Pick Gin, winner of the 1994 GI Kentucky race and a Bonita Ranch veteran, passed away this week at the age of 31.
In 2011, my partner in Go for Gin, Joe Cornacchia, who is a real mainstay of the sport and old-fashioned owner, was, like me, interested in the retirement of his horses. himself, asked me to contact Kentucky Horse Park regarding his location there. Many thanks to Park for taking care of him during the past 10 years.
Ironically, he lived next to another stallion on Bonita farm named Deputed Testamony, who was buried on the farm after his death at the age of 32. Now, in that stable is a retired stallion. Retired Mojave Moon, 26, shows no signs of illness. slow down.
I’m starting to think that the Fountain of Youth might not be in Florida but instead in Darlington, Maryland.
Thanks again to all the staff at Kentucky Horse Park for taking care of Go for Gin.
