Re: The Pennsylvania Derby Saturday

Just to clarify, in the case of splenic entrapment, the jogging/brisk walking was to try to dislodge the colon from where it was entrapped after reducing the size of the spleen with phenylephrine. Horses are rolled for the same reason. Impaction colic is treated differently. The vet (wearing a very ...

Re: The Pennsylvania Derby Saturday

In our case, we used a drug which constricts the spleen (it is full of RBC) and a lot of walking/jogging/bouncing (at 2:00 am on a frozen rock hard pasture in February. . . ) which worked. Rolling an anesthetized horse is also used. Horse's "guts" are not attached to the abdominal wall like ours are...

Re: The Pennsylvania Derby Saturday

Splenic entrapment induced colic has nothing to do with "fragility". It has to do with the horse's gut anatomy. I went through this with a mare, it can be tricky to get the colon restored to its normal position - almost a matter of luck. We got lucky and didn't have to go to surgery, I'm glad Max di...

It would be interesting if a study was conducted on whether or not horses born with a facial structure that shows more "eye white" are more aggressive.
You would have to find someone to fund it, lol. Easier to sell them a bridge.

Re: Honor Code ...

I never said HC never had talent, he very obviously did. But, there's no denying he had one run in him per race, from dead last usually. And he either made up the distance, or he didn't. I never cared for the fact the jock usually had at least one crack on his ass into him between the 1/2 and 3/4, ...

You should read what I wrote more closely, including the first (my) post made on this topic - at least if you're going to comment on it. And no, I was not talking about the backstretch (where he relaxed somewhat, but not entirely in places), I was talking about the homestretch where Our Country ran ...

I actually thought Our Country ran on pretty well down the stretch after his shying out of the gate and then very out of control/rank racing.

Faversham - Full to California Chrome - is running in an Allowance (3y+, NW2, 1 mile on turf) at Belterra Park this afternoon.
I'd like to think this horse is too high profile to land in a bad place - the word "Ohio" reflexively conjures Sugar Creek for me.

Phipps/Shug had a nice win with Performer in the fourth
Interesting coincidence factoid - Performer's dam, Protesting ran 2nd in the 2009 Demoiselle (G2). It was won by Tizahit, the dam of Come Dancing, winner of Race 6, The Ballerina.

That was a heck of an effort by Come Dancing. Broke slow, wide trip, won drawing away.
A very nice story about her trainer:
