Waiting for news on ...

Postby The Tin Man » Tue Sep 17, 2013 11:55 pm

I'd mentioned Flying Open ... Who went down hard at Fairplex on September 6th ...

Very scary incident ... as he went STRAIGHT down and 2 other horses skipped over him while dumping their jockeys because of it ...

Someone here mentioned they thought he'd clipped heels ... I didn't think it looked like that ... So I feared for his life. As it turned out ... That "someone" was right ... He clipped heels and is A-OK and doing GREAT right now ...

Here is a message I received back from Donna Keen in regards to how he's doing ...

From September 9th ...

He is doing wonderful. He actually went back to the track this morning. Other than a few little scratches from the shoes of the horse that ran over him you would never know he was injured. He never missed eating a bite of grain and has been happy as a clam with all the extra attention. Thank you for being concerned. I really believe all the prayers pulled him through this.

I heard the Big Brown filly three year old filly Shades Of Sugar broke down while racing in a
small allowance sprint with older males at Finger Lakes today.Hoping it wasn't fatal.
Any updates would be appreciated .

Reported that she was euthanized.

"...going through the turn she caught a hole in the track and caused a massive slab fracture of the knee. she was pulled up and fell where she caused extensive damage..."

Godspeed, sweetie. Seems like Finger Lakes needs to be more assiduous looking for holes.
