A Little Warm Injured

A Little Warm

A Little Warm, winner of the Grade 2 Jim Dandy at Saratoga in July, suffered condylar fractures to both front forelegs on Thursday and will most likely be retired from racing, his connections said Friday. A Little Warm was being pointed to the Breeders' Cup Dirt Mile on Nov. 6 at Churchill Downs.


According to Chris Baker, racing and farm manager for owner/breeder Edward P. Evans, A Little Warm suffered the fractures during a routine gallop on Thursday at Delaware Park where he was based with trainer Tony Dutrow. Baker said had the injury happened during a workout or a race, the situation could have been much worse.


A Little Warm underwent surgery on Friday at the New Bolton clinic in Pennsylvania, where veterinarians Michael Ross and David Levine inserted screws to stabilize the injuries. Baker said, however, that following the surgery Dr. Ross told him that the damage done to A Little Warm's right fetlock would make it unlikely that he could return to the stakes-winning form he displayed during his 3-year-old season.

even a site dedicated to the same. http://hybridvigor.org/
Firsrt, we do not know what genes cause speed or stamina. Probably not the same combination in any ONE offspring. Then the pure randomness of genetic complement given to the offspring, linked genes, operator genes, epigenetic factors........READ some real genetics before you open your mouth and express ignorance of the processes involved.....If a genetics study were accurate, the literally hundreds of well bred foals would have been champions.........It is a very old saw: Breed the best to the best and HOPE for the best...
it is always the clueless, unable to counter a logic differiong point of view. whp gp after typos...I guess all those years in medical practice ALONG with the study of both human and equine genetics were just for fun....MOST don't have an idea how random the genetic material is dispersed from parent to offspring during recombination, meiosis, cross over etc...GET an education and then you MIGHT be able to converse knowledgeably.
If you are going to be critical of something you obviously know nothing about, at least get the spelling correct when you use a big word ( hybrid VIGOR)
In breed for 20 generations never looking for outcrossed hybrid vogor and these things are the result.....Recall Talouse Lautrec, ostegenesis imperfecta? It is not isolated to a single species.
