The news

26.09.2012

It is quite unusual…

 

… but it sometimes happens!

 

TROTOT ran in a chase at Enghien on September 26th . She was not in the finish as her jockey had to stop her in the middle of the far straight. Wilfrid Denuault told us that she had torn her tongue strap and that she choked.

 

Explanation: it is sometimes necessary to tie the tongue of some horses who have a tendency to “swallow” it, putting it over the bit and then….they choke. This is what happened to TROTOT at the beginning of the race.

 

We, of course, still fully trust this good filly until next time!!.
