MGSW Disturbingthepeace (Bold Badgett) passed away at the age of 25 due to complications from colic Old Friends announced Friday. An earner of more than $666,000 in his 24-race career, the gelding did his best racing at Del Mar, winning back-to-back renewals of the GII Pat O’Brian S. along with the GII Triple Bend Breeders’ Cup Invitational H. and the GII Bing Crosby Breeders’ Cup H. He retired to Old Friends at the end of the 2012 racing season.
“Disturbingthepeace had a nice race career,” said Old Friends Founder and President, Michael Blowen. “He was completely, and inappropriately, named because he never disturbed anyone. He was the gentlest, quietest, most independent horse we ever had. He will be missed.”
