Odysseus has bone chip

Bone Chip Sidelines Odysseus

Posted: Monday, April 12, 2010 11:40 AM

Odysseus, who finished last under Rajiv Maragh as the 5-1 co-third choice in the April 10 Toyota Blue Grass Stakes (gr. I) has a bone chip in his front left knee according to owner Satish Sanan.

“It’s a bit unusual, it’s rare to have a chip in the back of the knee,” Sanan said. “He must have hyper-extended himself in the race.”

This sucks...I wouldn't have placed him anywhere for the Derby, but thought he'd play a part in the Preakness...strange place for a knee chip...in any event, hope they get it outta there and he'll be back to racing sometime this summer...kind of an interesting colt.

Yea I agree... He was pretty much a derby toss for me. Hopefully he will bounce back in good form.

I was just about ready to remove him from my Kentucky Derby list—don't have to worry about that now.

Hopefully he will be okay and we will see him a little later in the year.

Noble's Promise was scoped with mucous after the Arkansas Derby...McPeek in today's New York Post—he said he is 50/50 for the Derby.

Odysseus has bone chip

hopefully he doesn't have pain, and gets healed up fast and back to the races at his best!

He really did everything right. He was a lot like Drosselmeyer-light, in that he changed leads with fine balance, was fairly game, and even showed he could run inside horses. He was the type that if he got a performance enhancing "move-up" he could have been dangerous in a graded stakes. (in that way similar to "First Dude")

hope to see Odysseus healthy soon

I remember they were talking about him acting up a little before the race on NBC, I think it was Donna who noticed it. And he seemed to be fighting things throughout. He just wasn't right that day.

well you know how horseplayers/master equine veterinarians/surface experts like to wax poetic, "he was so game he would have injured himself on heavens clouds..."

hopefully he gets well soon.
