The culprit is an entrapped epiglottis, a respiratory issue that often requires minor surgery and time off to repair.
OMG!!! For real?!! Well this is serious news. Poor Mike Smith! Wow.
Now we're getting somewhere!!
Wow !!! I didn't have him anyway ...
It's heartbreaking but glad they found it before he raced......and there is the added plus that one less derby horse is "ruined" by running in thiis and hopefully we see him in some upcoming exciting stakes races.........unless he is whisked off to shed but I don't think so?
I'm not happy about bettors being kept in dark," "Porter said the throat issue became apparent in the past five days, and an April 29 scope revealed the problem". ......and as you know, breeding rights were purchased on Tues, then on Wed he is scratched.
So much for reporters reporting, huh? 5 days ago, maybe we could have been given a heads up ???
WHy I get hong kong mostly now.
I also did not have him in my trifecta, but still..........him not being in adversely affects my odds and if I had known something was afoot 5 days ago I would have capped a bit differently!
