Although TVG's "documentary" seems more like a subliminal commercial for Claiborne, I really enjoyed watching that horse run again. He would crush the opposition by running his second quarter faster than the first, and they were spent by the time they hit the stretch. I hadn't seen his maiden breaker before, that's an Arazi-like move he made on the backstretch. Wow! I had the good fortune to see him up close at Saratoga for the King's Bishop, he was quite a specimen. Won that race easily.

Hoop, I'm guessing that you are referring to the warrants that had been issued against Maria Borell for 43 counts of animal cruelty in 2016 in Mercer County, Kentucky. I found a reference on Bing that she was finally located and arrested near Syracuse, New York in December, 2016. I couldn't find more about the disposition of the Kentucky case against her.
This article, while somewhat dated, describes some of the very sad tale.
