Many times horses who race well on our city tracks just up and disappear.

Mostly retired without fanfare.

But some are sent overseas and one such horse raced today at Delaware Park in the U.S.

He was the troubled 4YO trained by Chris Waller in Sydney, called Paret (Harbour Watch-Enduja).

While with Waller he raced just 16 times but was plagued by 2 x bleeding attacks, yet still managed to win 4 races and place 3 times for $271,920.

He won 3 x Saturday races with Hugh Bowman in the saddle and even raced in the Gr 1 Epsom Handicap last year worth $1million.

Well, he’s ended up at Delaware Park after a savage bleeding attack at Rosehill on March 16 this year, forced Australian stewards to ban him from racing in Australia.

He was sent abroad a few weeks after the bleed where Lasix could fix his bleeding.

And today, he was unluckily beaten into 3rd place over 1500m at Delaware Park in a Black Type race.

It was the US$100,00 Glasgow Stakes (WFA) taken out in the end by the odd-on fav Parlour who himself has an Aussie connection being by Lonhro.

Paret was a fast closing 3rd after sitting back worse than midfield in a slowly run race, then motoring home late. He failed to grab the leader who got away with murder in front, by a long neck.

Paret was one of 8 runners, all of whom had to move 4 horses off the fence in the back stretch when a family of ducks leisurely walked across the track in their path during the race.

No horse lost momentum or their position as the entire field shifted away as one from the rails to avoid trampling the mother duck and her 7 chicks.

Those who backed Paret, a $13 chance, got very excited over the last 150m as the race track announcer called him sneaking up on the inside and winning the race, only to apologise post race for his mistake.

Paret came down the middle of the course to run 3rd.
