Send him an email with a little tact and perhaps he'll do better next time.

I tried, Curtis. I actually sent a couple of emails to both Free and McKeever (who took the Mon. and Tues. morning slots when we usually get to enjoy Rich Perloff), but they didn't read them. I'm not feeling especially slighted, because I never heard either of them read emails from anyone. They only read Tweets.
Maybe they don't know how to access the TVG emails, or just wanted to skip that part of 'Capsule. :P

Didn't see that anyone has posted about this kiwi boy. He's had quite a fight going. If you're the praying type, now's a good time. Te Akau Racing has been updating his progress on Twitter, which had been looking cautiously good. Below are a couple of articles about his injury Nov 12. His isn't a name one would forget, and I was watching the race, I think on TVG. They call him Jerry.

GINGERNUTS update - v mixed few days for our boy. Infection likelihood in joint/pastern now slim but new concern with onset of lameness in affected leg. Pain relief increased but he's comfortable & a super patient. We will all keep putting his interests first #jerrylove

Screens were up in the background in the post race interview.

Ghostly Presence’s winning time for the 1 1/16 mile Tropical Park Oaks was 1:42.79. Race was marred by tragedy as favorite Speighgal broke down on the front stretch and was euthanized. @GulfstreamPark @Sentinel_Sports @NTRA

Horrific accident at Wincaton in the 3:45 hurdle. Favourite Edvardo brought down by faller, continues running on and gets tangled in his own reins. Second time around the screen was brought out, really doesn't look good. :(

ETA: It seems nothing more could be done and Edvardo had to be euthanised

Arunachala suffered what looked like a severe injury in the 5th at Santa Anita down the hillside turf course. Pulled up quickly but it did not look good. :(

Update: TVG just passed along the news that the Peter Eurton-trained filly was able to walk onto a van for the trip back to the stable. Unfortunately, an exam revealed she had two badly broken sesamoids, and could not be saved. :cry:
Britney has taken the rest of the day off from the TVG desk.
