Ugh that has to suck. 

Left hand huh? I wonder if he's a righty - still sucks big time. I drilled a hole through my thumb last month and couldn't use that hand. It just makes you more klutzy and more likely to injure something else.

Thx for the update

I think they are! Former FOB Teresa Genaro is on the board and the BCCA is Edgar Prado's pet charity (bet you knew that).

Here's another story I had to re-read as an antidote to the LUCK/PETA/Drape news. I just hope there'll still be a track to go to when I'm 97

Can't imagine the pain he'll feel as the horse pulls during a race....of course, he is riding horses that he knows well, and can anticipate when that might occur during a race, but still.....ouch!

HRTV was talking about it the other day = saying they know how much pain they can tolerate coming back from an injury - I know with me it would be zero....!
