Honeysuckle Vine overcame rearing up at the gate and 2 jockey objections to win by a neck in her maiden yesterday at Finger Lakes paying a very handsome $19.40
On July 6th we reported, on the web, that Sky Afleet had "some inflammation in his left front tendon." Also, will be "scanned over the next few days"...
The results of the scan follow. Looks like Tom caught it before it turned into a bigger issue;
"Dr. Leroux scanned Sky Afleet and found a very small tear in his left front tendon. The vets recommended about sixty days out of training. He’ll ship to Kip Elser’s Kirkwood Stables in Camden, South Carolina before going back into training in September. Disappointing that he won’t run at Saratoga this summer, but fortunately Tom caught this before a more serious injury occurred."
