Left Bank dies from colic complications
Whitney Handicap winner Left Bank died on Monday from complications
following colic surgery.  DEPALMA13 writes, "I never thought I'd see
a year where so many good horses are dying of non race related injuries.
It's a shame."  SHELLY440 adds, "This is just terrible news. I am still
totally shocked over what happened to Siphonic, now Left bank too? It's
horrendous and so so sad."

1935 TC winner Omaha to be paved over?
FINALVOYAGE writes, "The grandstand at the former racetrack is going to
be torn down and the horse's bones will be paved over. The city of Omaha
doesn't realize what a treasure they buried under the grandstand when it
was added onto in the 1960's. They moved the monument over him and left
the bones. Omaha deserves reburial at the Kentucky Horse Park.  Maybe he
should be buried next to his sire at Claiborne. After 30+ years his bones
would still be there as they have been sheltered from the elements."
