Einstein Retiring?






A major contender for the Eclipse Awards champion older male, Einstein, age seven, ran third in the Clark Handicap at Churchill Downs November 27, 2009. Despite breaking from the fourteenth post position and facing a very talented field, he was only closely beaten by the three-year-olds Blame and Misremembered. Bullsbay crossed the wire in seventh. Macho Again finished ninth.

Although it has not yet been confirmed, it was believed to be Einstein's final race before retirement. Whether it was or not, here's a little video tribute, courtesy of Margo Moon, to the incredible Einstein.

Ah, Baby, glad you liked it in spite of the shaky camera.

If I'd been holding the video camera, the combination of nerves, cold and typically unsteady hands would have made it impossible to view. You did a great job. Thanks!

Hey Claripet, looks like we'll get to see Einstein in at least one more race. Bloodhorse reported today that he is not yet retiring.
