Great article yesterday on the New York Times Racing Blog about Philotimo, an OTTB who was rescued from a neglect situation. Glad to see the good news stories featured — a soft landing for the gelding and responsible former racing owners who stepped up to the plate and helped fund his rehab.
Of course, there’s also the sad part . . . that a successful racehorse like Timo could fall through the cracks and end up in such dire circumstances.
