MIKE HEAD’S SATURDAY PREVIEW FOR HASTINGS

SATURDAY MAY 27th HASTINGS PREVIEW

Thoroughbred racing returns at Hastings this weekend with a seven race program this afternoon and the hard trying claiming types dominate the card. The feature is race one as five three year old colts and geldings will travel six and half furlongs.

It was great to see Ron and Rae Fawcett (Tod Mountain Thoroughbreds) make the trip down from Heffley Creek (north of Kamloops) to attend the Doug Clyde memorial yesterday. They will be cheering for HUNTER’S APPEAL who is back in with three year olds today which will give him an excellent shot. He wasn’t disgraced in his first start of 2017 finishing fifth beaten by a little more than two lengths. This is a much easier assignment this afternoon and Enrique Gonzalez gets the call from trainer Mike Anderson.

Rob Anderson Jr. and Suzanne Anderson’s OFF THE GRID will be making his initial start of the season. He closed out 2016 with a game win in a $12,500 maiden claimer. He has worked smartly in preparation for this dash and will be ride by Jose Asencio for trainer Rob Anderson.

Ted Graling’s XTREME SPELL had some troubles in his first two outings last summer but closed out his campaign with an authoritative victory over $20,000 maidens in Edmonton. The son of Rosberg has split his spring training between Northlands and Hastings and his speed must be respected. Richard Hamel and Greg Tracy will team up.

Dylan Heppner’s SILENT EAGLE chased an extremely fast pace in his 2017 debut and ended up far, far back. He has turned in a couple of sharp half-mile drills which may signal he is ready for improvement and the drop in class is also a plus. Amadeo Perez will get a leg up from conditioner Malcolm Beveridge.

it would be fitting if the Doug Clyde bred ALL UNDER CONTROL were to win the money a day after his memorial. The son of Doug Clyde’s stallion Storm Victory is down in price and will race without blinkers today. David Lopez will be in the saddle for Mike Anderson.

The racing action begins at 1:50 p.m. and a reminder that there is an eight race card on Sunday also begins at 1:50 p.m.

Equine Ringbone: Process, Progress, and Prognosis

Equine Ringbone: Process, Progress, and Prognosis 

Horses with high ringbone will develop a body buildup around the pastern joint that might be evident as a swelling above the hoof line.

How veterinarians and farriers manage this degenerative arthritic condition

We’ve all been there: We wake up on our day off, which also happens to be the first day we’ve seen the sun in a week. Excitedly, we head out to the barn to tack up for a ride and, instead, find our horse favoring a foot.

Let’s say in this instance, upon closer examination, we notice heat and swelling just above the hoof or, perhaps, even a bony lump. What’s the next step—call the farrier, or call the veterinarian?

The answer is both. As it turns out, veterinarian, farrier, and owner form the optimal team to determine a treatment plan for hoof-associated issues, especially if your horse’s clinical signs lead to a ringbone diagnosis.

“I’m a huge proponent of the team approach to treating ringbone or any hoof-related problem: the owner; the veterinarian, who provides the medical and diagnostic expertise; and the farrier, who offers in-depth insight on shoeing and the mechanical forces of concussion,” says Vern Dryden, DVM, CJF, of Bur Oak Veterinary and Podiatry Services, based in Lexington, Kentucky.

Read on to learn what ringbone is, how your team can work together to diagnose and treat it, and what your horse’s prognosis is if he has it.

The What and How of Ringbone

Ringbone, defined simply as progressive arthritic change that affects the pastern and/or coffin joints (high and low ringbone, respectively), can occur in one or multiple limbs. Although pain from joint inflammation (arthritis) and an immune system on overdrive initially cause the lameness, eventually a bony buildup (hence, the term ringbone) can fuse the joint and relieve it.

Predisposing and contributing factors include conformation, excessive weight, and use. “Horses with extremely upright pasterns or that tend to have an extreme variation, either a valgus (a limb deviating outward from midline) or varus (deviating inward) deformity where they’re collapsing one side of the joint space, can lead to arthritic changes,” says Dryden. “And long-term excessive weight can at least exacerbate these issues once a horse has ringbone. But the most common causes are working on hard surfaces from a young age and injuries to the joint’s cartilage and/or ligaments that lead to osteoarthritic changes in the joint.”

“Most of the cases I see are in middle-aged to older horses,” says Stephanie Caston, DVM, Dipl. ACVS-LA, an assistant professor at Iowa State University, who has studied the use of alcohol injections to fuse arthritic pastern joints (read about it at TheHorse.com/27004). “We see everything from Warmbloods to Quarter Horses and everything in between. I can’t think of one breed or discipline that’s more predisposed to it. I do see some younger horses with ringbone, but like with people, arthritis is usually associated with wear and tear on joints, so it takes some time to develop.”

If your horse’s conformation lends itself to developing ringbone, Dryden suggests avoiding heavy or constant work on hard surfaces and shoeing to improve any structural deficiencies. “There are many different ways to approach it,” he says. “You might want to use pads between the hoof and the shoe to decrease the vibratory forces and concussion or use a synthetic shoe.” As with any health–related condition, your veterinarian can best assess your particular horse’s needs.

EMERALD DOWNS WRAP-UP FOR FRIDAY NIGHTS LIVE RACING

Lovethisbar

LOVETHISBAR RAZOR SHARP IN FRIDAY FEATURE

AUBURN, Wash. (May 26, 2017) – Loverthisbar shook clear into the lane and held Zoombadaboom safe for a three-length victory Friday in the $11,200 Muckleshoot Casino Purse for 3-year-old fillies at Emerald Downs.

Well handled by jockey Isaias Enriquez, Lovethisbar covered six furlongs in 1:10.65 and paid $8.20, $4.20 and $3.60. Brad Taylor is the winning trainer and co-owner with Randy Pray.

An Oregon-bred by Demon Warlock-Trainingat the Bar, Lovethisbar dueled with Girls First and Livintheleftlane through fractions of :22.56 and :45.87, put those two away into the stretch and had plenty in the tank for the victory. Earning $6,160 for the victory, Lovethisbar is 3-2-2 in 11 career starts with earnings of $28,358.

Zoombadaboo, the 2-to-1 betting favorite ridden by Rocco Bowen, rallied from last to finish second and paid $3.40 and $2.80. Little Joker, ridden by Javier Matias, finished third and paid $4.60 to show while Toddies Hottie, Livinintheleftlane, Dakotas New Wheels and Girls First completed the order of finish.

Both the winner and runner-up were claimed Friday for $10,000 by trainer Jeff Metz.

NOTES: J.C. Estrada rode his first Emerald Downs winner since 2008 aboard Image Of Truth ($9.80) in Friday’s fourth race for trainer Charles Essex. Estrada, 55, was voted the 2007 Lindy Award for sportsmanship by his fellow riders at Emerald Downs. . .

Jockey Leonel Camacho-Flores made it 250 career wins at Emerald Downs with a gate-to-wire romp aboard Vistarella ($11.40) in Friday’s fifth race. . .

Rocco Bowen rode two more winners–already his 12th multiple win day–and leads apprentice Kevin Orozco 34-21 in the jockeys’ standings. . .J

uan Gutierrez tallied in the nightcap on Hallowed Harbor ($4.80) for trainer Chris Stenslie. Gutierrez needs two wins to become the second rider to win 1,300 races at Emerald Downs…

Live racing continues Saturday with first post 2 p.m. and includes a carryover of $10,137 in the $0.20 Pick 7.
