He just won't be coming to Saratoga. :-(


This is only true if the filling is there when you are taking the horse out of the stall. This type of swelling or filling will disappear within minutes of warming up the horse. (And why as Kurenai pointed out, it would be far more beneficial for the horses to be out and moving about even just hand grazing throughout the day than being cooped up in a stall) If what they say is accurate, the filling appeared AFTER his work outs which is why it is concerning (can be indicative of a limb that is not 100% and therefore handling the stress of working/being down poorly).


I also wrote it could be a result of injury. Jeez!


Absolutely! I was just pointing out why the first option was unlikely and why I highlighted that part instead of trimming it :) .

IIRC, Seattle Slew, who continued to race after the TC, did not retire undefeated.


THAT ^ is what I meant.

Actually nobody disagrees with you! :lol: I only thanked Treve cause she explained further. Great if the weight loss thing isn't true! And yes, I do hope that we get to see him race again. The timing is just really bad unfortunately.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying that all (!) of this could have been prevented if he had some vacation. That was just regarding the weight loss and it's good that that didn't turn out to be true. With time off: If it's an undetected underlying problem, that problem would have still showed up once he resumed training.

I just wish they would have given him some time with lots of walking (no not the shed row). It does all kind of good things to a horse. Faster healing of pre existing minor injuries, strains from racing and generally all around, better blood flow, exercise without straining, better for the whole gastro tract, good for the mind etc. And yeah I know this is old school, but that's how horses are designed by nature. It's the way I learned and from my experience the results are great. And yes I know, it's unpractical in the routine of a racing stable and usually not done (especially if it's a big stable, there's just not enough people to do that).

It's - again from my experience with training race horses - just puzzling to me, why some trainers are not into that. 23 hours in a stall isn't good for a horse at all. I wish I could ask Baffert about this and his reasoning. Will never happen, so I continue to be puzzled by it. :lol:

"nobody disagrees with" me? That's a first. LOL!

I don't know what the heck is going on with Justy. It could be one great big PR game. Time will tell. I just can't believe he won't race again. Oh, and by the way Treve is a he. ;)

Why does it really matter on a forum about s/he?

Ok - Treve the horse is a she. Treve the poster is a he. It doesn't matter, Della. But I've had some conversations with Treve, and I always "assumed" Treve the poster to be a he.

I think it's respectful of Ballerina to want to get my gender right, after all some people don't appreciate being referred to as the opposite sex (first time assumptions not withstanding)! Might not matter much to you Della, and maybe it doesn't matter much on a horse racing forum, although personally I think it's nice to get an idea of the demographic.
As a young woman I do find it encouraging when I see other women actively interested, engaged or working in the racing industry.

Well, I am shocked that I never picked up on this. I don't have to know someone's name, but not knowing or guessing someone's gender can become bit disconcerting when in error - like now. :D

Treve, I did not mean to come across as dismissive of you, and I apologize for conveying that. Treve was/is one of my favorite racehorses - such heart - and I always enjoy your knowledgeable posts.
