winstarfarm We are excited to share that @kentuckyderby Champ ALWAYS DREAMING will race on in 2018! He was found to have stomach ulcers after the Travers Stakes, and was recently cleared of the ulcers by veterinarians after treatment and a month of being turned out at Our training center.

Xanax should just be in the air.

Why not. It's already in our water...along with hundreds of other drugs. :roll:

I can tell you honestly I would sleep a lot better if it was actually in our water. If this were 100 years ago I would have died giving birth to a child I didn't want. Life could be worse. Water hasn't killed me yet.

Horses get stressed just like people. Maybe he needs some lavender essential oil and yoga. Works for me.

I mean, if he was already on Gastroguard, then they knew he has ulcers before the Travers... that and 99% of race horses in training and 90% of domestic horses have ulcers. But a bad case can make a horse downright miserable. Glad they got it cleared up... but as soon as he gets back into training I can't see the ulcers staying at bay.

Either way, nice to hear that he will be racing in 2018.

He needs his own personal hand grazer for 3-4 hours/day to give those stomach acids something to do. . . .that's why they're there. Zenyatta had one.

An older horse is always welcome, especially if it is the Derby winner.....

It sounds that the Gastroguard is used by Todd as a preventive on all his horses so they wouldn't necessarily have known he had ulcers prior or how bad they were before he was actually examined.
But I wonder if the draw reins pre-Derby contributed to his anxiety and stress rising considering he started non-performing right after the Derby. I gotta wonder how long he was living with this bad a case of ulcers.
