“Grade 3 Winner Chelokee, who survived serious sesamoid injuries to become a sire, died Friday at  the University of Arizona Equine Sciences Program.  In a poignant twist, the 10 year old succumbed on the day of the Alysheba at Churchill, the very race in which he broke down, exactly 6 years to the day.” ~Brisnet
