No Action Taken on Life At Ten

Kentucky Horse Racing Commission stewards plan no action against trainer Todd Pletcher or jockey John Velazquez after Life At Ten failed to be competitive in the Breeders’ Cup Ladies’ Classic (G1) on November 5 at Churchill Downs.


Chief Steward John Veitch interviewed Pletcher about the race in which Life At Ten was not asked for her best after a sluggish start. Sent off as the 3.80-to-1 second choice in the Ladies’ Classic, which handled $12,194,157, the two-time Grade 1 winner slowly galloped around Churchill before being eased by Velazquez, who sensed something amiss.


Life At Ten developed a fever the day after the race, signaling an illness or infection. The fever was not indicated when her temperature was taken on race day.


“Apparently it was incubating and it showed itself at race time,” Veitch said. “Todd had told [Velazquez] that she seemed dull in the paddock. He said to warm her up and see how she feels.”

Many of our late scratches come from concerned riders coming over to the vet at the gate and pointing out a problem that may not have been apparent in the earlier part of warm ups., Some stiffness warms OUT and a whole range of others don't show up until the horse actually gets some real estate under them......It saves lives and injuries and it should be done more often.
Most of the big sires are cloistered after coming off the track so they can shrink back down to normals size.....Take away the anabolic steriods and they get much smaller but testicular function returns.
what does that do to the breeding and bloodlines too btw. a horse has one sick year then is retired b4 there roids where off,, is that blood really worth anything? c'mon man,,
pletcher dodges another bullet,,,cheater , clearly he knows how to mask his steroids!!!!!
