No, this wasn’t the sequel to the movie “Dreamer.” The fairly tale ending did not come true and Ready for Rye did not win the Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint, finishing seventh in the field of 14 horses. All the same, he put in another game effort, refusing to fold after breaking from the 12-hole and leading the field by more than a length after an initial quarter-mile in 22 seconds flat over a turf course labeled “good” at best. His heart and class were further revealed when it was later discovered he may have had the thumps (a sort of “equine hiccups” that are often associated with an electrolyte imbalance and significant fluid loss brought on by exhaustive effort). Talk about giving it your all! For now, Ready for Rye’s brilliant season is over. He finished the year having won four of eight starts with earnings of $409,360. Rye is on a short vacation, before beginning his 2016 campaign at Gulfstream Park.
