Did not realize this gem from Indian Charlie, assuming it's true....

Not one horse suffered an injury in this year's triple crown races, amazing considering the conditions!
Congrats to the three track maintenance crews!

I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

Arkansas Derby winner Magnum Moon sustained a career-ending injury during a workout today at Belmont Park, according to Jacob West, the bloodstock agent and racing manager for owners Robert and Lawana Low. The colt is currently at Cornell Ruffian Equine Hospital. (more below)


The injury occurred during the gallop out after his breeze today. West said the injury was a "structural injury" in one of Magnum Moon's front limbs. He's unsure of the course of action at this point, but will know more soon.

Why on earth aren't they being more upfront about the severity and nature of the injury?

I think you can blame social media for that. I would imagine the owners don't want phone calls or constant posts about how they did the horse wrong.

Audible out of training, aimed at 2019 Pegasus
Florida Derby winner and Kentucky Derby third-place finisher Audible has been taken out of training and won’t race again until the end of this year at the earliest, trainer Todd Pletcher said.

Audible in late May was sent from Todd Pletcher’s base at Belmont Park to the Rood and Riddle Clinic in Kentucky for a full physical exam because Pletcher wasn’t satisfied with the way the horse was training. Veterinarians found no substantive problems with the colt and after spending a short time at WinStar Farm, a part-owner of the colt, Audible returned to New York.

But after watching the horse continue training since his return, Pletcher recommended pulling the plug again, and Audible has been shipped back to WinStar.

“The bottom line is I just really wasn’t satisfied with his training,” Pletcher said Friday morning. “After discussing it with the connections we felt like some additional time would do him well. Look forward to getting him back in the fall, hopefully with a race at Gulfstream before the Pegasus. If we delayed much more, we’d be putting that plan in jeopardy.”

The 2019 Pegasus World cup is scheduled for Jan. 26.

I know that some fans had the opinion that Audible was held out of the Belmont just to give Justify an easier time of it, but the fact that the colt has been sent to the farm for a second, long rest makes me believe that there really is something amiss with him.
It's not like either the trainer or owner(s) would pass up the lucrative summer sophomore stakes with the talented colt if he were completely sound.

I don't know of any assertive statements but the connections of Justify and those of Supreme Aura have mentioned it being under consideration.
