Double Platinum had been standing in a kill pen lot waiting to be shipped
to Canada for slaughter when TEF got a call that the 18 year
old Racing Warrior with 92 starts needed help.
His time was running out, it was Sunday afternoon and he was scheduled to
ship by Tuesday... and that was by luck. Typically he would have already
been gone but arrived late to the lot. TEF was able to secure him with a late night transaction and sent him to a quarantine
facility in PA.
This incredible son of Strike the Gold had a successful racing career with
earnings of over $305K and set a new track record at Remington Park. He
was pulled up at Mountaineer in his final race at the age of 12. We are
not sure what he has been doing in the interim, but he appears to be relatively
sound and has had some training.
