Lost And Found Presented By Horseware: What Became Of Silent Ruler?

Most of the time, our Lost and Found subjects are horses or people who have disappeared from public view for a while, leaving readers to wonder what they’ve been up to lately.

In 2013, readers fell in love with miracle baby Magna Fortuna, the subject of a profile we published when the gelding went into training.

This week marks five years since Kegasus, the famous centaur-like mascot dubbed “Lord of the InfieldFest” last graced the infield at Pimlico – an ongoing disappointment, no doubt, to fans of the character.
