Update 3430: An update on Chelokee's status after his surgery on Monday: Surgery successful for colt injured on Oaks day.
Update 3429: A good opportunity to add your comments: Safety First.
Update 3428: Another hectic morning this morning at Woodbine, although we were light on horses that needed training. I ended up riding four horses and walking about six. Five hours of solid exercise before stopping. I am knackered. The horses I rode went nicely. All is well.
Update 3427: An excellent article from Paul Moran: The Sport Is Here to Stay, excerpt:
While it is true that, in Europe, females commonly compete against males, European racing, conducted exclusively on grass courses and without the array of medication permitted for use in this country, is quite different from its American counterpart. The ground is more forgiving; the pace less punishing. Minor injuries are treated with time and rest, not corticosteroids and other substances that temporarily mask pain.
Please keep calling and writing.
