Unhappy Lost Soldier

Well today I was looking at some horses I like and I learned that Lost Soldier died.

He isn't my horse but when I read about it tears rushed to my eyes. He died September 7 and I didn't know about it until know.

He was and still is my favorite Stallion

Lost Soldier, sire of champion Lost in the Fog, was found dead in his paddock Sept. 7 at Doug Arnold’s Buck Pond Farm near Versailles, Ky. The cause of death is believed to have been a heart attack.

“He hadn’t been sick and was in good health,” Arnold said.

He will always be close to me. My horse is his grand son.

A Soldier not forgotten

Sorry to hear about Lost Soldierís death but actually itís nice to know that somebody cared enough about him to cry. I didnít know him but in my life Iíve encountered many horses, some I took care of and some were stabled near horses that I trained and I know how easy they work their way into your heart.

Lost Soldier's Son... my Soldier of Fame

I, too, was sad about Lost Soldier. He was my horse's father. My Soldier of Fame raced in early 2000's and did well, then suffered a minor injury which took him off te track. He was then purchased by a woman in Ocala, FL, in 2005. Our daughter bought him on August 9, 2006, the day all her childhood dreams came true. Tragically, we lost our daughter in a car accident 7 months later. I could never part with her horse so at the age of 53 I became a horse woman. I have a wonderful trainer - my daughter's -and a stable that is knowledgeable and caring. My barn family is irreplaceable. My husband has recently acquired his own horse and we love riding together. Our daughter wanted to give him the name Soldier of Peace and show him and slowly...very slowly...we may actually get him and me there!!

I'm so sorry about your daughter. I hope you can start showing soon. That is a beautiful name she picked out for him. Soldier of Peace. They said my hore was to slow but I think they don't really know because he was so under weight when we got him that he was to weak to run. What color is your guy. Mines grey but he takes that after his father. I was planning to breed to Lost soldier even though his stud fee was 7,000.

Soldier is chestnut bay. His dam was Gold N Delicious. He ran around 26 races and placed 1st, 2nd, or 3rd in 13 of them. We were able to find videos of most of his races. I put an album on entitled Soldier of Fame.

I'm so sorry to hear about your boy's death. But you should be glad that you still have a horse that carry's his legacy through blood. RIP Soldier :(
