Older Comments about Rough Sailing...

Have they released any info yet on just how serious the injury was? I'm not familiar with too many cases where a horse is injured during a race, but in the few I do know of, generally if it's thought that the injury could be reasonably healed and the horse regain his/her health, an attempt to save them is typically made. Since Rough Sailing hadn't been gelded (that I know of) he still might have proven to be of value as a stud. Whatever the circumstances, though, it's truly sad. Rest in Peace, Rough Sailing!

  • blooy · torn or pulled muscle i believe, that sucks such a nice young horse. · 1480 days ago
  • ribot · Probably the fractured shoulder caused the rear end slip while switching leads, so unfortunate but, things like this do happen out of the blue.. Ive ridden in that ambulance and it 's awful. No one runs a horse if they think something like that is possible, "hearts and prayers" · 1480 days ago
An article about the tragedy posted at CBS says: "The 2-year-old fractured the right humerus, a major support bone in the upper leg, when he slipped and fell going into the first turn. He was taken off the track in a van and examined on the back straight. "It's not a fracture that's repairable," on-call veterinarian Dr. C. Wayne McIlwraith said." I don't know anything about veterinary medicine, so I comment on what he's saying, but to my uninformed ears, it sure sounds like it would be a very difficult area in which to try getting a break to heal. So sad :(

With all the money these horses make for their owners, couldn't they fix Rough Sailing's shoulder. Anyway, I guess all of these wonderful animals are expendable. So sad
  • humphrey · When Seattle Slew won his Triple Crown, the owners just about broke EVEN after paying the insurance premiums....It is more economical to destroy then sadly · 1480 days ago
RIP Rough Sailing. You do not deserve to be put down for slipping. I know your shoulder is fixable, but some people don't understand that. Someone would have loved to have you in their pasture to look at and love. RIP.

Rough Sailing physically resembles his damsire, Woodman, the Irish Champion Juvenile. He receives turf attributes from his sire Mizzen Mast, a son of Champion Turf Horse Cozzene, as well as Woodman and his second and third damsires (The Minstrel and The Axe). Rough Sailing’s dam is a half sister to multiple stakes winner Wild Zone.
  • humphrey · You know some of the BEST looking horses could not beat a fat man DOWN a hill and others, i.e.Personal Ensign who was not described with any glowing attributes, just functioned well. We had an old claimer who was sway back and long bodied. That combination gave him great acceleration, and for years he had part of the track record at 6 furlongs....It was suggested that Seabiscuit ran even BETTER after his injury as it realigned a portion of his leg to the point he could extend it further. · 1490 days ago
