Desormeaux Updates on Ive Struck a Nerve

Fair Grounds-based trainer Keith Desormeaux nominated Big Chief Thoroughbreds’ Silent Ruler to the Grade III Lecomte prior to last Saturday’s deadline and the Lafayette, Louisiana, native was somewhat non-committal when asked if Silent Ruler would be a Lecomte contestant on Thursday.

“That’s a thought-provoking idea,” said Desormeaux.  “That’s about where we’re at with that right now.”

Asked about the status of Big Chief Racing et al.’s Ive Struck a Nerve, last season’s upset Grade II Risen Star Stakes winner who was injured prior to the 2013 Grade II Louisiana Derby but was due back at Fair Grounds about January 1, Desormeaux said that Ive Struck a Nerve’s return has been delayed a month or two. 

“There are no further issues with him,” Desormeaux said, “we just want to make sure that his fracture is totally healed before we start back with him.”
