The Toronto Star has printed an apology to thoroughbred owner Bruno Schickedanz in regard to stories it ran in 2010 relating to the death of former Canadian thoroughbred of the year Wake At Noon.

In late June of 2010, Wake At Noon, a career winner of $1.6 million who was brought out of retirement to race again, was humanely destroyed after he broke down during a workout at Woodbine Racetrack.

In its apology, the Toronto Star stated that it had ‘received information that Schickedanz had violated a track rule by having a horse of that age (13) which had not won a race in a year train at Woodbine. In fact, there was no such rule, and the horse was not illegally at Woodbine.’
