Baffert said Mastery was scheduled to have two pins inserted into his left front ankle to address the condylar fracture that was discovered after the race. No plans have been made regarding his future. Horses can return from an injury like this, but Mastery is an unbeaten colt with a Grade 1 win on his resume, so his residual value is high.
Baffert on Sunday said he was still “in shock” over the developments.
“Here you do the right thing, give him time, plan on two preps,” he said, before his voice trailed off.
