Wild About Annie Training Postponed
On Thursday, February 17, after WAA returned from her morning gallop, Diamond D detected some heat in her left front knee. The vet’s x-ray revealed a small, lateral hairline fracture in one of the carpal bones (in the joint between the forearm and cannon bones).
The Filly is not in pain; she’s able to stand on the leg; and she’s able to walk around freely.
Surgery is not necessary, and the vet recommends that we give Annie 60 to 90 days off to allow the crack fill in and heal on its own. In this regard, Annie will be turned out to paddock at Diamond D for several months.
At this time, our plans to race Annie at Lone Star Park this Spring will be a longshot. If all goes well, we hope to have Annie back in training around June to prepare for mid-to-late Summer racing.

Back in the Saddle at Diamond D Ranch!
Wild About Annie returns to her regular weekly works at Diamond D. She'll have short breezes in February, and then she'll stretch out a bit more over the next 60 days.
This is all in preparation for the Spring Meet at Lone Star Park!
