"Slight" is a bit generous :) , hind feet are more angled/narrow than fronts. Definitely not the end of the world if the horse stays sound on it and it doesn't cause compensatory issues elsewhere. . .
I say slight because his pastern doesn't seem very visibly affected as it would in a severe case. Also I can't zoom in on the pictures and on the older pictures (where his hooves aren't shined) the angle doesn't look quite as drastic... so I wasn't sure if I was seeing correctly. I like to be certain before using confident adjectives :lol:

I did look at all the pictures and it is evident in all of them. And yes, the pastern is visibly straighter. It also appears that his right hind has an angular deformity as it also shows in all 3 pics (and video). However, that foot/pastern is a more normal angle. Having put a horse down last summer that we could no longer keep comfortable on an upright foot, I may be sensitive to such things. . .

Sorry, but even if the foot wasn't iffy, I don't find him to be very attractive. Great parents, but maybe not the best results in this boy. :oops:
Now watch him turn into a G1 racehorse. :lol:

Well he does have a very nice hind end/shoulder on him and is a scopey looking colt. The time off probably didn't help him in the developed look category.


A very inquisitive/intelligent face!

It's evident of course that's not what I'm disputing, I'm just saying it isn't drastic enough that I'd hit the ceiling and start panic just yet :P . I probably didn't express myself clearly in the sense that "I know I saw the foot is clubbed and the angles aren't great, but I wasn't sure exactly how bad or not that it was"... we had a quarter horse with a club foot that also became navicular, so I know how badly things can go, unfortunately :( Sorry to hear about your horse as well.

And I agree, he's not all bad and I think given time to develop and get back working he will be a different horse entirely. But even if he weren't a looker... neither was Kincsem. Didn't hurt her record. :D

Facing the Asmussen trainee in the 6f MSW will be (amongst others) sons of Maclean's Music, Twirling Candy, Ghostzapper, Tapizar, Super Saver, Congrats and Data Link.
Considering he's a 3yo they really took their time with him...

He finished 2nd by 3 3/4 Lengths behind the other Asmussen trainee, Share the Upside (Maclean's Music x Mystic Silver). He was ahead by 1 1/4 length of the betting/ML favourite.

Oh my god...Wild Lando, who was leading in the race, ducked out so badly in the stretch that he ran into Dial Me In, who then ran into Faversham. The collision clearly caused severe injury to Dial Me In, who lost his rider as he stumbled, and I believe he went down.
Faversham appears to be OK, crossing the wire in what looked like 3rd...although I'd be worried about the colt until I was able to check him thoroughly back at the barn.

Santa Anita: Duluth ($27.40) wins incident-filled maiden race
Duluth ($27.40) won Friday's third race for California-bred maidens, the beneficiary of a clean trip in a race in which another runner impeded a rival so severely that the affected horse sustained an injury.

In the stretch, Wild Lando, the 8-5 favorite, drifted out and into the path of 4-1 Dial Me In, who was forced to check under jockey Victor Espinoza. Dial Me In appeared to sustain an injury to the upper section of his right foreleg in the incient and was vanned off.

Dial Me In was taken to the stables for evaluation, according to stewart Scott Chaney.

Wild Lando continued the race and finished second. Duluth, racing on the inside in the stretch and away from the incident, won the one-mile race by six lengths.

After an inquiry, the stewards disqualified Wild Lando and placed him fifth. Faversham, a full-brother to two-time Horse of the Year California Chrome, finished third and was promoted to second. Faversham was forced to check under jockey Stewart Elliott, nearly coming to a stop, and appeared to make contact with Dial Me In.

Faversham, trained by Art Sherman, finished third by eight lengths.

Duluth and Wild Lando are trained by Phil D'Amato. Dial Me In is trained by Jim Cassidy.

"Art Sherman is pretty shaken up, but reports Faversham, the full-brother to California Chrome, came out of the incident OK.

"Boy are we lucky. He was inches away from going down. I just went over my horse and he looks OK. No scratches or anything."

Dial Me In is being evaluated"

That's so sad. I didn't see the race but I was scrolling through the posts here, hoping he'd be all right.

Saw the news earlier on twitter but didn't know what race this was in... RIP Dial Me In, what an awful situation and an awful incident. The others involved were very lucky not to suffer life threatening injuries. Just wish Dial Me In had gotten the same luck too :(

Well, that should be interesting. If Aiden O'Brien is excited and dreaming of the possibilities of what he could be... I'm gonna let my spine tingle a little. :lol:
