Ah, had not seen this update.  Thanks for posting.  So very thankful she was pulled up.

I thought it would be a soft tissue injury, and kudo’s to Jose for pulling her up when he felt her off! Regular jocks and exercise riders know their mounts!

Thanks for posting, don’t know why I didn’t get the alert. I’m glad Shug ordered the ultrasound, those jocks know their mounts! Bloodhorse has some on it as well;

THis sucks, suspensory's can be tricky

Since they only found it via the ultrasound the following day I am hoping that the injury isn't as severe as it could have been.

the good part is that Shug is such a good horseman: he got that test just to be cautious and they found the injury

 

Exactly.

Yes catching it early is a good thing, but they can be so tricky to heal and you may think its all good and start back to work and issues pop up again. I hope she heals fully.

I'm immensely grateful for all the jocks who can tell when something stats going bad and who then pull up their mounts.

 no question that those quick thinking and caring jockies are responsible for saving the lives of horses and keeping an injury from getting worse

Oh, I see.  Yes, hope she heals fully.  Now that the time pressure of making the Oaks is gone, time should be less of an issue.
