Pasaka Boy fractures foreleg on gallops

Stable favourite and winner of five races Pasaka Boy lost his action during a routine canter. He was immediately dismounted by his regular rider Lois Bosq and the horsebox was summoned from the stables so that he could be swiftly and carefully transported to the veterinary hospital 30 minutes away.
X rays on arrival showed a non-displaced split to the pastern bone which had two screws inserted whilst standing. All this was done within an hour of arrival. The efficiency of the Donnington Grove Veterinary Practice is to be thanked as was the help of their top equine surgeon, Bruce Bladon.
The prognosis for Pasaka Boy to race as normal next season sound very positive at this stage. He won his recent race impressively, had come out of that in fantastic form and was being prepared for one more run this season prior to a well earnt holiday at grass. He is now rated 95 so life next year might be tough enough anyway for him!
