What Did Cody Dorman’s Family Say About His Death?
Cody died on his way home from the 2023 Breeders’ Cup. In a statement, the Dorman family said:
“We are heartbroken to share the news that our beloved Cody suffered a medical event on our trip home to Kentucky yesterday and he has passed away, On Saturday, Cody watched his best friend, Cody’s Wish, display his usual perseverance and toughness in winning a second Breeders’ Cup.”
“Those are the same characteristics Cody has showed time and again for the 18 years we were blessed to have him. We have been completely amazed to experience the impact Cody has had on so many people, through the journey that this wondrous racehorse has taken us all on.”
Dorman was born with Wolf-Hirschhorn syndrome, a rare genetic disease that makes movement and speech difficult. As a result, he had to communicate with others via computer. Following his death, the Breeders’ Cup issued the following statement:
“The entire Breeders’ Cup team is devastated by the news of Cody Dorman’s passing yesterday. His story captured our hearts and minds, and his strength, spirit and determination were fittingly embodied by his namesake’s commanding performances in his honor.”
