Thanks for keeping us in the loop, tachyon! I hope the exam results are positive for Rainbow Line. <3

Thorough examination of heroic Tenno Sho winner RAINBOW LINE found tendon and ligament damage to the right front fetlock. Follow up checking + monitoring required as they could not reach a definitive diagnosis. RAINBOW LINE has gone to the Farm for a spell


Here's hoping that rest & monitoring will help Rainbow Line make a full recovery! *fingers x*

I'm relieved it is not life-threatening although tendon and ligament injuries can take a very long time to heal. (The horses at my barn with soft tissue injuries in that vein are often off for 6 months - 1 year. Still, I am hoping he will have a fully recovery that'll allow him a pain free life whether he makes it back to the track or not!

Once again, those teeets are not necessarily correct.

Scary scary rear/slip by Orfevre's daughter Rock This Town in the paddock before the NHK Mile (G1)... :shock:

Amazing finish by Keiai Nautique (dam by Smarty Jones <3) to edge out Gibeon, who had a very gutsy stretch run. Tower of London trapped on the rail for much of the race but when things opened up he had no run.

Hoping that Rock This Town is okay, thankful she didn't strike her head. :?

Here's ''Umamusume'' Episode 7 -- Tenno Sho Autumn with the real track call in 1998.

As the track announcer called it, that Silence Suzuka's tragedy is widely remembered by Japanese fans as Chinmoku no Nichiyobi (Silent Sunday).
But she (he) survives in this anime.

Silence Suzuka was an absolute freak who could run eye-popping times without even breaking a sweat.

His was a terrible loss for the sport.

I haven't seen ep 7 yet, but I had to go back and watch Special Week's Derby after the dead heat in the anime. :shock:
