This isn’t meant as anything other than a wry observation on information flow. About a month ago, the Japanese blogger Futeki and I independently happened upon a note in La Nacion that Asiatic Boy had been retired and would enter stud at Haras Abolengo in Argentina in 2010. Click here to read it. Then two days ago, I tweeted this:
This was followed yesterday by this article on Asiatic Boy’s retirement in Thoroughbred Times and TDN by Michael Burns, the South American correspondent for the US trades.
Finally, the very capable Pat Cummings at Dubai Race Night followed yesterday with a post about the retirement of Asiatic Boy, who was so accomplished in Dubai, with a link to the article in Thoroughbred Times.
Later today, this news will be in Racing Post, then Australia, Daily Racing Form, and around the world. It also will be retweeted anew. And so the news is spread.
