With great sadness we must inform you that Dusty (Sam Gash) passed away today after suffering a series of seizures that did irreparable damage. Our thoughts are with his family — Lindsay, Doug and Brantley — who opened their home and hearts to him with the full knowledge of his medical issues.
Dusty began his career at Wheeling Downs and shortly thereafter came to Southland, running more than 80 races and earning A and AA ratings with 13 wins, nine second-place and 12 third-place showings.
We extend sincere condolences to his adopters as well as Gail, who fostered the sweet blue fawn over the holidays and championed his adoptability. R.I.P. Dusty.
