  • tcglory · He keeps reagravaiting old injurys and is a gelding so hope is to bring him back if things can heel up. · 453 days ago
I am still searching for news on him. Anyone??
Any word on how he's doing?
According to trainer Richard Mandella, Setsuko has a small suspensory ligament tear and will be out of action for quite some time.
  • likin sparks · You'll hear some vets say 2 to 3 months, but I've seen re-injuries occur more often when they try to work to soon, 6 to 9 months to be safe. · 819 days ago
Two time Santa Anita Handicap runner-up Setsuko is “looking good again” and is being considered for either the Grade II Mervyn LeRoy Handicap on May 5 at Hollywood or The Californian, also a Grade II, on June 2, Hall of Fame trainer Richard Mandella said.
Setsuko worked 4f in :49 (11/35) at Santa Anita Park on 3-31.
Last seen finishing 2nd in the Santa Anita Handicap for the third straight year, Setsuko handily worked 5 furlongs in 1:02.20 (73/103) at Santa Anita.
  • Age of Reason · Don't you mean the second straight year? Though he was runner-up also in the Santa Anita Derby the year before that... · 899 days ago
Setsuko came out of his second-place finish in the Santa Anita Handicap in good order, but his next race might be out of town. “The Tokyo City (Cup on March 24) is a little too close (from the Big ‘Cap, which was run last Saturday),” Hall of Fame trainer Richard Mandella said. “He had his comeback race; he ran great in there and it took a little out of him. I don’t want to come back within the month. It’s too quick. We’re looking all around. There are a lot of big races and we’ll probably pick one.”
  • ARBY · Hopefully this son of Pleasantly Perfect will, like his sire, will continue to improve with age. · 904 days ago
