General Quarters injured

General Quarters, a thoroughbred owned by Norwich native Tom McCarthy, was slightly injured in a freak accident this week and may miss horse racing’s year-end championships as a result.

 

The 4-year-old gray was coming off the Churchill Downs surface following a Monday workout. Another horse was in front of General Quarters. The front horse reared up and General Quarters, panicking, did likewise. General Quarters kicked himself coming down, suffering an injury to his left front leg, his trainer/owner said.

sad news to all general quarters fans, the general will be sidelined till next spring because of a chip removed from his knee. i was looking forward to seeing him run in the breeder's cup, but i know he will return next year healthy and better than ever. the good news is that mccarthy will be looking to claim a couple of horses. I'll be watching for these.
