Square Eddie Back From Injury, Retirement

Square Eddie, winner of the Grade 1 Breeders’ Futurity in 2008 but a horse plagued by injuries and setbacks for the last two years, comes out of retirement after an 11-month layoff in an optional claimer over 6 1/2 furlongs at Santa Anita on Friday.

Despite the gap between races, and Square Eddie’s seven-race losing streak dating to the Breeders’ Futurity, trainer Doug O’Neill is highly confident about the 5-year-old’s chances.


“He’s ready to win,” O’Neill said. “His times are solid, and he’s bouncing out of his works.”


Square Eddie has not started since finishing sixth in the Grade 1 Malibu Stakes in December 2009, when he was plagued by a breathing disorder, owner Paul Reddam said last year. Last February, while being prepared for the Strub Stakes, Square Eddie was diagnosed with a suspensory injury that led to his retirement to stud.

There a many fairgrounds meetings in Arizona that last a week or less
Just saw a report through a news link last night where a horse who had ran at SA ended up at some track i have never even heard of in Tuscon and in the hands of an illegal immigrant who abandoned him in a neighborhood. A Dynformer...Dyna something...happens all the time unfortunately.
You would be amazed at where some of these poor old horses wind up., A few years ago a horse that had run well in the SA Handicap showed up and ran poorly at Finger Lakes
I just hope this doesn't end bad...I used to be a big O'Neill fan, but not anymore. Drug O'Needle is more like it lately. Just hoping this horse comes out of the race ok.
