A Gift Forever More
Yesterday, social media all over the world reacted positively when a video taken at Team Snowden’s yard in Sydney revealed that stable favourite Dothraki had been retired and was magnanimously given to his strapper to have as a gift for ever more.
That touched so many people and global giant Godolphin has followed suit in the most delightful way.
The best horse to have carried the Godolphin blue in Australia, HARTNELL, will bow out of racing after he crosses the line in the Gr 1 $2million MacKinnon Stakes at Flemington on Saturday.
And he will go to the home of a man who just loves and adores him, Reg Fleming. When told of this, it too was captured on the camera and the emotion shown by Fleming is just wonderful. He had no idea what was about to happen.
You have to take your hat off to @Godolphin, this is amazing…
Reg Fleming is almost brought to tears after being told that Hartnell will be his after his retirement on Saturday.
You love him to bits, you deserve him Reg. 💙 pic.twitter.com/eiRjuY9PAR
