Just couldn't come back fully from a tendon injury. Look for stories online shortly.

It was frustrating watching him try to replicate his synthetic form on dirt. It just never happened for him. I'm one of the minority who doesn't mind synthetic surfaces, but the presence of horses who may (or may not) be purely synthetic specialists in the mix for the classics just adds another layer of uncertainty to the already treacherous handicapping game. We don't need a variety of non-turf surfaces. The rest of the world knows this, right? Wouldn't standardization in one direction or another (even synthetic, if all are convinced it's safer) be preferable, or is that too socialistic/one-world for certain Americans to accept?
