Ogygian died last night. He was three days away from his 32nd birthday.
He was a dazzling racehorse, as speedy as they came. But I didn’t know him as a racehorse.
He was a moderately successful sire here in the States and in Japan. But I didn’t know him as a sire.
He was a beloved pensioner at Old Friends Equine. And I did know him in this role — as one of the retirement facility’s earliest ambassadors.
