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.
