Default Did anyone knew this happend to Race Horse "Ferdinand&q

I know this old news and stuff, but I wanted to foward it onto here. This was the Horse of the year and a Derby Winner! I'm sure a lot of you watched him win the Derby, I know I did!

Champion Ferdinand slaughtered in Japan
According to a breaking story on BloodHorse.com, Ferdinand, who won the 1986 Kentucky Derby and 1987 Breeders' Cup Classic en route to being named 1987 Horse of the Year, died last year in Japan, most likely in a slaughterhouse. He was sold to Japan in 1994 after failing to succeed as a sire in the US. After six years at Arrow Stud in Japan, they opted to get rid of him as he just wasn't successful at stud. It isn't certain what happened to him and investigations are still underway, but he was most likely sent to a slaughterhouse in September 2002 to avoid the cost of supporting him as a pensioner. Discuss this on the forum.
