Horse Racing is an absolutely brutal game believe I know first hand. You get your horse ready pay the stake payments and have the dream of standing in the Winner's Circle of a Big Race and in a minute those dreams can be gone.
Today Endorsement had a brilliant workout at Churchill Downs going 4 furlongs in a razor sharp 47.1 but within a hour high hopes turned to major disappointment.
Endorsement, is owned by WinStar Farm and trained by Shannon Ritter. Endorsement
suffered a non-displaced fracture of the right front
ankle during his morning workout and is out of the 136th Kentucky Derby
. Robby Albarado, who would have ridden Endorsement, now
gets the mount on Dean's Kitten.
