"No injury" is not quite accurate. He didn't have a bone chip, but as he was cooling out after the race his right knee did swell and he was definitely sore in it. He was sound at the walk, but off at the jog. They believe he twisted and sprained the knee sometime before the start, because he balked loading and NEVER did that before his entire career.peeptoad wrote:http://www.drf.com/news/california-chro ... llion-duty
No injury, deemed healthy and ready for stud duty...
They gave Chrome some bute, which helped him be comfortable overnight and for the trip to Kentucky.
Don't know if any of you have had a badly sprained knee, but I have. It's extremely painful...in my case I could barely walk and it took months before all discomfort went away. In my opinion, they are very, very lucky the sprain didn't turn into something worse during the race.
