BETTER TALK NOW (Talkin Man), the 2004 Breeders' Cup Turf (G1) winner, will
be retired from racing due to an injury sustained in the suspensory ligament of
his left hind leg. The injury is believed to have occurred during training for
an expected start in Saturday's Joe Hirsch Turf Classic Invitational (G1) at
Belmont Park. The injury is not life threatening and will have no impact on
Better Talk Now in his life after racing.
