Anyone following this "little" Iowa horse?

TT was third in the Advent at Churchill on December 9th, but bled for a second time. On Lasix. Ugh. Maybe was brought back too soon after the Breeder’s Cup bleeding incident on November 4th, but this does not seem good. Maybe he needs more time off or to be moved to a second career.

They are always more likely to bleed once they have bled and they all bleed eventually. You will never convince me that banning lasix was the humane thing to do.


I haven’t looked in a while but there was research that said that all horse bleed. Including Mongolian Wild horses. But I have also seen some thoughts that it is genetic. But if it is somewhat genetic it is in a great many horses.

Bled again in the Advent Stakes.
