Japanese horse breeders are short on either English translators or common sense. So, please bear with me while I speak for the world: In the future, could you nice folks in the land of the rising sun please tell us all when a Breeders Cup Classic winner dies?
Thank you. We’d appreciate it.
A couple of days ago, a spokesman for the Japanese Racing Association announced that Arcangues was dead — and that, oh yeah, he hasn’t been alive since October 2006. Yutaka Yokoyama said that Arcangues was last active as a stallion at Aomori-ken Keiba Bokujo where he died at age 18.
A French bred, Arcangues, with Jerry Bailey aboard, came out of nowhere to win the 1993 Breeders Cup Classic at 133-to-1.
