Brother Bob was quickly out of the gate and almost cleared the horses to the inside of him. Nonetheless, he was well-placed and running with the leaders when about half-way around, he appeared to be going backwards. In fact, he ended up first... going backwards, unfortunately. Clearly something was wrong.
When the jockey came back, he said the horse was showing something wrong in his left hind... but that appeared after the race was over. During the race, he guessed that he started bleeding. After scoping his throat and lungs, he did not bleed but showed signs of repeatedly flipping his palate which severely interferes with the amount of air he can intake.
Linda is thinking about the treatment options. We can try him with a tongue tie or perform a Lewellyn procedure, a surgery that doesn't always fix the problem but did help Ahvee's Destiny.
In the meanwhile, Hear the Footsteps and Inchcape breezed this morning. So, they will soon be racing.
Saturday night, Cameron Lucky drew the #7 post position in race 12 at 10:25 PM at Saratoga Harness, which is not helpful. Oh well!
Have a lovely weekend and enjoy your Passover or Easter holidays!
