All that I heard was that it was Dominique's horse, and the same as was
at Tevis, so the name Jur Prize I got from checking Tevis records and my
own notes from Tevis---but I personally did not see a horse being loaded
at LAX referred to specifically as Jur Prize (not that I was asking for
every horse's name and since the Brazilians arrived fairly late for one
reason or another, they were processed and loaded up pretty quickly.  I
would be very glad to hear that it was a different horse at WEC.

Me too (as do we all).  I thought I should reply to this particular
post, but out of deference to Steph's request we not discuss this, I'm
going to leave it alone now.  It was a terrible tragedy, it happened,
hopefully it was pretty much unforeseeable/unavoidable, and I apologize
if the conclusion that it was Jur Prize at WEC was incorrect.

See ya, Mike!:-)
