Except we don’t know yet what that settlement agreement will be yet.  They ‘previous’ CHRB dropped the ball.  Hope that horse from Montana is declared the winner.

Agree, hoping they are more forthcoming in the hearing.

Finding of bone loss in fatal leg injuries

The results showed that 90 percent of fractured PSBs from the cases had visible discoloration on the surface of the fracture, most commonly (70 percent of the time) in a characteristic crescent pattern. Directly below the cartilage, evidence of bone loss was noted in 70 percent of cases. This bone loss was located in the same region as the discolorations. Fractured PSBs had lower bone volume fraction and tissue mineral density within the lesion sites than comparable locations in opposing limbs and controls. These regions were contiguous with the fracture lines. Evidence of microdamage was also observed in fractured PSBs.

I haven’t had a chance to read the full article yet.  I am wondering if they know the reason(s) for the bone loss.

Should we go to a rating system for claiming races? Sounds like a good idea to keep horses from changing barns so often and decrease their risk of injury?

Safety measures , for horses, put into place at Churchill ( Keeneland will too) seem to be holding well. But in reading this, I believe it’s really meant for horses stabled there and not those coming for stakes races?
