Thought this great horse had a chance. Once Laminitis sets in though, things are not good. I have to say the fact that these owners have tried everything to save this colt is great. I worked at the race track for 6 years and was working for Tom Bohannan when Prairie Bayou suffered the same injury as Barbaro in the 93' Belmont, Mike Smith couldn't pull him up fast enough and the results were catastrophic. Back at the barn everyone from John Ed Anthony to the Vet from Springfield to the guy that rode him in the morning was there, it was emotional to say the least. There was no choice and he was put down. Just found out his mother Whiffling was also Euthanized last Dec due to old age. It's the sad part to the Racing business but these animals really are special. I miss working with them and always try to get a chance to visit a barn, even jumpers since they are all ex race horses. My hat is off to Roy and Gretchen Jackson. I just wish the result was a little different.
