  1. No, he was empty. He acted up for 8 mins. before loading, dumped Soumillon, and didn’t have the company of his groom, security blanket, and friend, Barbara Budinszky–if my cursory investigation is correct–on the 15-hour van ride to Baden-Baden from Budapest. He’s a notoriously bad shipper, was coming back to international competition after a 2-year hiatus, with a different trainer and groom, to boot, and was attempting 1200 meters in G2 company after prepping twice in Hungary and Slovakia at 1000 meters against questionable competition; moreover, the foot issues which have kept him to 3 races in 2 years must have taken some zip out of him as well. Can he be the same horse he was in 2008 is the question, but no question in my mind he’s not a happy horse without Barbara around him.
