Monet's Garden ||:GET WELL SOON:||
Please read if you can :) Just a really rubbish tribute to a wonderful horse. Monet's Garden, who turned 13 on New Year's day is one of my favourite horses due to his seemingly unending ability to stay at the top, but more than that because of his obvious love for what he does. This gallant old grey has won 17 from 32 starts in his career, winning the Old Roan Chase 3 times, the Ascot Chase twice along with a Melling Chase, Peterborough chase and a Liverpool Hurdle. His great athletic ability, combined with his flamboyant front running style and stunning grey coat endeared him to many people. Unfortunately, just a week or so after winning his third Old Roan Chase, Monet's Garden contracted a foot infection which spread to his hoof. He has since been retired and is critically ill, fighting for his life. We can only hope that he pulls through, and can have the long and happy retirement he deserves :) Anyways, this video was just my way of expressing how much he meant to me personally, after watching him race many times. His best days came at Aintree and Ascot-Aintree being where he won his 3 Old Roan Chases. I think it's time they erected a statue of him there, he deserves it! So yeah, I don't care if zero people read this or watch it, but fingers crossed Monet's Garden can make it. Get well soon old boy!
