Enable wins the Oaks at Epsom under Frankie Dettori

Congratulations to the John Gosden team for winning The Oaks with Enable.

Enable ran out an impressive winner of the Investec Oaks at Epsom in the hands of Frankie Dettori.

John Gosden’s filly was a 6-1 shot for a mile-and-a-half Classic run in driving rain after a thunderstorm hit the track just minutes before the off.

Pocketfullofdreams took the field along for much of the way, but was a spent force heading inside the final three furlongs.

BACK ON TRACK

Diagnosing and dealing with back pain and dysfunction in the racehorse

Kate has an editorial "Back On Track" (full article - courtesy of Thoroughbred Owner & Breeder incorporating Pacemaker) published in Europe's leading horseracing and bloodstock magazine, Thoroughbred Owner & Breeder December 2016 - Issue 148 - page 113.

Diagnosing and dealing with back pain and dysfunction in the racehorse

Back On Track
While back pain is a common complaint in thoroughbred racehorses in training, it remains largely misunderstood by people outside the veterinary profession. As such it has been a soft target for many a charlatan and indeed a whole backyard industry has evolved around the supposed ‘putting back in’ of backs that are ‘out of place’. A good starting point to begin to understand this misleading notion of ‘out’, is to take a look at the basic anatomy.

STRESS FRACTURES IN THE RACEHORSE

Kate has just had an editorial "Stress Fractures in the Racehorse" (full article - courtesy of Thoroughbred Owner & Breeder incorporating Pacemaker) published in Europe's leading horseracing and bloodstock magazine, Thoroughbred Owner & Breeder April 2016 - Issue 140 - page 88.

Stress fractures in the racehorse
Comparing injury, rehabilitation and management with British military personnel

‘Tis the season to be extra vigilant for the signs of stress fracture in our racehorses. In spring, when training ramps up and the flat season begins, the incidence of stress fractures increases, largely due to lack of skeletal adaptation. Given that stress fractures were first described in the scientific literature in 1855 by Breithaupt, a Prussian military physician, who identified the “march fracture” in the metatarsal bones of feet in soldiers, it is perhaps appropriate to take a timely look at the military for what we can learn about these bony injuries and their management.
