I really hope he completely recovers...and that tons of breeders bring him mares, hoping to get some of that intelligence and good temperament.


As sweet and laid back as American Pharoah is, i dont know if would cooperate to that degree---
The Player is a remarkable horse!!!

Westwood (Bernardini x Ashado) started bearing out badly on the backstretch of the True North at Belmont and it looks like he was pulled up. Did not cross the wire. I hope the beautifully-bred colt will be OK. :(

Westwood, who was bearing out down the backside, was pulled up by John Velazquez. Vets are looking at his left foreleg.

Glad to hear this:

Trainer Kiaran McLaughlin says Westwood has a pretty bad hoof injury, which was why he was pulled up in the True North. John Velazquez indicated he may have grabbed a quarter.

McLaughlin: “He broke his hoof. He’s going to be OK ... but it’s going to take some time.”

Ow. But it's much better news than something like fractured sesamoids or shoulder.

We all have missed him so much and I have to say he looks happy. He still has some time to go before he will get to come home. Carl And I will meet with the vet tomorrow and hope to let everybody know soon.

3 hrs · Baton Rouge, LA ·
Carl and I got to spend the last 3 days with our boy Angus and it was a good visit. Every vet and intern that we talked with just loves Angus and said that he is just a special kind of horse and knows how to take care of himself. Still there are two concerns which are stability and infection. So it is still a time thing as he has not healed enough to take out the plate and screws which could be the source of infection if there is one. If he gets more stable in the the next few weeks then we can leave the implant in. Overall the vets seem positive and feel that in a few weeks we will know more of a timeframe as to when we can get him out of there and back home. Carl and I were glad to see him and feel that he is progressing well while receiving great care by all of the LSU staff.
