That poor, poor filly.
Possibly a gynecologic exam meant to assure the future buyer that she should be able to have babies. Likely we will never find out for sure.

Sounds like it. Gina Rarick, an American trainer who trains in France, posted on my FB wall that the vet palpated the ovaries "and screwed it up."

Palpation of ovaries and uterus is via rectum. I don't know how often they spec a filly vaginally for pre-purchase BSEs; I would guess not often unless something seemed odd on the rectal.

Thanks for clarifying that point...and I feel dumb, because I've have seen a breeder friend check a mare's follicles/pregnancy status (via the rectum with those shoulder-length gloves) often enough that I should have remembered that.
smacks palm to forehead. :oops:

Wow. That is a major F-up by the veterinarian. I can imagine they will live with that for the rest of their life.

You mean two DNF's last year, like in 2013. He's had ten races since that second DNF in September 2013, with several of them on the board. Apparently he hadn't raced since late April, and this must have been his first work back from that.

RIP Western Grit.

RIP, girl. You had made it to the lead, before disaster struck.

Wishing a speedy recovery to her jockey, Marcelino Pedroza Jr, who broke his collarbone in two places.

What a shame, I had hoped he'd make something of himself, given his pedigree.

Song For Krismike was leading the 8th race at Charles Town Saturday when he stopped abruptly and was eased to the wire. He collapsed just after the wire and didn't get up. Possible heart attack.
