Royal Mo was vanned off in an air cast this morning. I haven't seen anything from any of the publications yet.

I read it in a post on FB and here in The Preakness thread in the racing section.

*fingers crossed*

Trailer has arrived to pick up Royal Mo. He's likely heading to New Bolton in Pennsylvania.

An x-ray showed a fracture to right front inside sesamoid :(

DRF article here (says free): https://t.co/dkpOB0fhJw

Shirreffs said fracture was contained to sesamoid, did not involve condyle, surgery unlikely. Royal Mo headed to New Bolton to be monitored.

Gary Stevens on Mo: “He was relishing the track. The track had a good bottom. The track had nothing to do with it. He was on cruise control"

Two horses I follow were pulled up at Churchill today.

Bodie Ramsey in the 2nd. Chart says he was vanned off.

Areed in the 10th. It's too soon for the chart to be up so I don't know what happened.

Both horses were far back in the race and off the screen when they pulled up.

According to BH, Uncle Mo did have surgery which was successful in repairing the fracture but now comes the recovery with the usual worries of possible infection, support limb laminitis, etc. Poor beasties sure go through hell to be well. I hope this time next year all of this will be far behind him and he's feeling the sun on his back at a great stallion farm.

Areed was claimed, chart stated "bothered early on".

Sudden Sam fell hard in the stretch of the 7th at Santa Anita--he was clear, so didn't clip heels--but TVG reported that he walked onto the ambulance? :? Hard to imagine that he didn't suffer a catastrophic injury. . . Jockey Kyle Frey managed to roll under the rail and avoid the rest of the field.
I ran marathons. I saw the Taj Mahal by Moonlight. I drove Highway 1 in a convertible. I petted Zenyatta.
