From Facebook:

The Player
2 hrs ·
Update: While Dr. McCauley says The Player is healing, he felt that he should be doing better at this point. So yesterday he took X-rays(He takes X-rays weekly)which finally showed a screw that had partially broken. He removed the partial screw this morning and he is hoping that is the source of infection and the cause for some discomfort. Still doing well otherwise and his attitude is great.

The Player allowed my apprentice to shoe his support leg in the stall, laying down & wide awake. No drugs. Just a vet student petting his neck. Once the shoe & pad were nailed on he stood up to allow J.W. To finish the foot.


From The Player Facebook page. I really, really hope he beats this. What a character.

Wow. So hope that getting that screw out will be the key in getting this unique guy home soon.

I have seen lots of amazing horses in my long career but not as amazing as this horse. He is a Thoroughbred stallion by the name of “The Player”. He is in the process of having his left ankle fused because of injury. Now I have done more than my share of horses laying down but they were knocked out on a operating table. The Player allowed my apprentice to shoe his support leg in the stall, laying down & wide awake. No drugs. Just a vet student petting his neck. Once the shoe & pad were nailed on he stood up to allow J.W. To finish the foot. I’m so proud of both the horse & my apprentice, J.W. Perez. Job well done!!

That is an amazing colt. Clearly, whoever raised & trained him did a great job of teaching him to trust humans, but I don't know if even the seemingly-saintly Zenyatta would have stayed put like that. :o
I really hope he completely recovers...and that tons of breeders bring him mares, hoping to get some of that intelligence and good temperament.

The highly-touted, 1/9 favorite in the 7th at Santa Anita, Amada Rafaela, was pulled up on the backstretch. :(

The Santa Anita stewards say Amada Rafaela was euthanized after her injury during the seventh race.
