Arkansas Derby winner Magnum Moon sustained a career-ending injury during a workout today at Belmont Park

reminder to self:  NEVER  set on a horse who has sustained an injury as a 2 year old, certainly not for the TC series.  IMHO, he never should have raced in the KY Derby, but won a ticket so owners wanted to go go go  .... probably missed too much training from that ankle injury .... could see that in ARK DERBY and Rebel.....the drifting out was reallly quite severe.   People who liked him kept making excuses for that....

I saw this coming. I don't think you could pair up a more brittle sire/bms combo than Malibu Moon and Unbridled's Song. 

On another note, Suddenbreakingnews returns to racing on Friday. 6.5f at Albuquerque Downs...?

He seems to have lost interest in racing after being gelded. Hope he is well taken care of.

Looks like SBN went further and further west, now lives in new mexico with new trainer. 

I dunno about the geld, but could just be having run in the derby and belmont......so many horses don't seem to do much after that

I empatize. I don't how well you could take care of me at that point. I know it's part of the industry, but I hate the whole practice of gelding. I had a friend that lived on a goat farm, and he routinely removed the testicles of young goats and thought nothing of it.
