Rest in Peace Finallymadeit

Rest in peace, Finallymadeit.

Finallymadeit, a multiple graded-stakes winner and $1 million earner, fractured his left front cannon bone Tuesday morning over the main track at Saratoga and had to be euthanized. Finallymadeit had been preparing for this Saturday's Whitney Handicap .

The above picture was taken by the Turk in the Saratoga paddock just before his last start in the James Marvin Stakes on opening day.

Our thoughts and prayers are with his connections, including the folks at the Eclipse Training Center in Ocala, Fla.

I'm glad we got a chance to see him up close in the paddock. RIP.

I just can't believe this happened. I was at the track Tuesday morning and then I saw the strange notation on the TBA standings next to his name. Thanks for the great photos.
