2010 Eclipse Award Winner: Tuscan Evening … I Hope

Tuscan Evening is gone. In a shocking and saddening Sunday morning at Del Mar, she collapsed after a workout on the turf course and passed away.

The sudden, heartbreaking news sent me into reflection on the marvelous career of a beautiful racehorse.

Lets honor this champion race mare who ruled the turf for a time in 2010 where she was 6 - 0 on the greens. Well Tuscan Evening, we all will miss your sheer guts and drive. Your heart was so willing to please your counterparts. Thanks for the memories!

Tuscan Evening, gone but not forgotten,....
