Yeah, horses these days are a model of consistency aren't they? One week they run off and then the next week they're lame or sick or get hit by a truck or fall down in the washstall or kuckle over jogging and pull a suspensory.

Don't worry at this point about John Drew.  I think he will be OK.  He was a little "loose" and the trainer was unsure.  The vet said he could race but couldn't confirm that they could expect maximum effort, so the decision was made to scratch this morning.  After seeing that lukewarm mile put up in his heat tonight, I wish he were 100 % because with his current form, he would have been forwardly placed IMO. An agreement was made to scratch because he was just not 100 % healthy.  The horse still is sound in the legs, lungs, and heart, just a tad under the weather.  I expect him to step up to the plate next week and take his swings.  TC

        I raced horses with a loose stool that was like cow shit and they ran off by 5 lenghts. You know, sometimes you can put things in a horses stomach that doesn't agree with the steed and their stool will become loose but it doesn't mean they're sick. As long as they are not off their feed or have a temperature I say race those suckers because you never know next week they may pull a suspensory jogging. But, then again that's me.

I agree Dan.  I think it was a close call, but a safe one.  Good Luck to Doc who is a great guy.  TC
