Strange story from today’s New York Times: seems 2002 Derby winner War Emblem is having a little male trouble. The unintentional comedy is through the roof, too. War Emblem is “in therapy,” the Times reports, and is uninterested in mares, even though he is some kind of pimp, surrounded by them and able to screw any one without a second thought. There’s no word whether he’s gay or asexual, but either sucks for his owners, who have considered selling him and may have lost as much as $55 million waiting around for the ol’ boy to get it up.
Kudos to the Times for handling it with tongue planted firmly in cheek. (SG)
