[Princess Lili B was a 3-year-old filly bred, owned, and trained by veteran horseman David Bernstein, best known as the trainer of 1994 champion older male The Wicked North. On Thursday morning, after Princess Lili B was put down following a half-mile work in 53 seconds, Bernstein was understandably rattled.
“She was perfect,” Bernstein said. “The work was slow because she never works fast. She didn’t have a lot of talent, she was just kind of a horse. But she was my horse.”]
I know this board is about handicapping and finding value, I get that.
Reading the comments from Bernstein, particularly the last line, really hit home. Heart breaking to read that.
