Longshot Risen Star Stakes winner I’ve Struck A Nerve is now off the Derby Trail. Thoughts?
this morning I’ve Struck A Nerve worked a half mile.
Desormeaux said the work was great, but ISAN came out wrong.
fractured sesamoid, but not a terrible break.
& will maybe return after a 6 month break.
Kaitlin, I wasn’t aware that this had happened- they didn’t mention it when I was watching HRTV’s “Rewind” last night. Realistically, I think the chances of ISAN actually making his way back to the track are pretty close to zero. Even if it wasn’t a bad break, it’s still a BREAK, and sesamoid bones in horses don’t heal well once they are fractured. ISAN is pretty well done, I think- I expect we will hear an announcement of his retirement shortly. It’s sad, it really is. And, Dalmation, I agree with you to a certain extent. The Thoroughbred industry in America can’t continue on this way, or racing is going to breed itself right out of existence. There is WAY TOO MUCH emphasis on speed and looks in the breeding sheds these days, and NOWHERE NEAR ENOUGH on SOUNDNESS and long term HEALTH. The incidence of preventable, hereditary defects (including EIPH, degenerative bone disease, cryptorchism, “tipped” mares, and on and on) has shot up drastically over the last 30 or so years, and we are paying the price in other ways, too. Speeds are getting slower, the gene pool has shrunk because of over and inbreeding, and horses are becoming more and more fragile and less able to stand up to the demands of training and racing. Add in the overfeeding and over conditioning which are routine practices on the farms, the early starts that virtually every Thoroughbred must make in his or her career, the pressure to win and win big at far too young an age, and you have a recipe for disaster- which is what keeps happening.
Kaitlin, do you know what the modern definition of insanity is? It’s doing the same thing over and over again while expecting a different result each time. The sport of Thoroughbred racing exemplifies this right now, and it has done so for decades. Unless and until the powers that be which control the sport finally WAKE UP and smell the coffee, and take off their rose colored glasses so they can see the sport as it REALLY IS, then nothing will change. We will still have horses like Violence and now ISAN who will end up in retirement before they are even fully mature. We will still have tragedies like the ones involving Barbaro, Ruffian, Eight Belles, Go For Wand, and all the others. And racing as a whole will continue its downward decline, as more and more people get tired of watching beautiful innocent animals die during or after races and turn elsewhere for entertainment that isn’t so bloodthirsty. I saw Fort Larned stumble at the start of the Gulfstream Handicap on Saturday, too, and throw his rider. He ran a great race afterwards (he would have won if he’d had a rider)- but because he was riderless, it didn’t count. I also heard last night that he apparently grabbed himself pretty badly when he stumbled, too, and will be sore and out for awhile. That’s just the kind of thing that turns a lot of people OFF when it comes to racing. I’m not talking about the hard core fans or the actual horse people, mind you. The hard cores and the horsemen and women will always remain loyal no matter what. They’ll still be around when everyone else has long since disappeared. No, what I’m thinking of and talking about is the non-riding general public, the people who don’t know one end of a horse from the other, but who are usually able to grasp when a horse breaks down or otherwise gets hurt as a result of racing. It’s these people who get turned off when they see something like what happened on Saturday at Gulfstream. Unfortunately, these people are also the industry’s bread and butter- they make up the fan base that racing needs in order to survive. And sadly, that base has become eroded over the years, as more and more of them get turned off and go elsewhere. In some ways, it can even be said that racing in America is like a house that has a foundation which is slowly being eaten away by termites. Eventually, the house is going to collapse because there’s nothing to support it. Sandra and others like her may claim that racing will never disappear, but frankly, I am not so sure that’s true, not any more. Stories like the ones surrounding Violence and ISAN ( to say nothing of IHA last year) aren’t doing the sport any good at all. They’re just providing fuel for an already fiercely burning FIRE- a fire that isn’t going away any time soon. This is just my take on things right now…
