Statement from Trainer Todd Pletcher and Owner Jack Wolf on Prognosis for Early KY Derby Favorite
Boynton Beach, FL February 29, 2012 - X-rays taken this morning have revealed that Algorithms, undefeated winner of the Holy Bull S. (III), has a fractured splint in his right front leg that will have to be surgically removed. He is going to ship to Ocala tomorrow, where Dr. John Madison of Ocala Equine Hospital will perform the operation. "We are hoping that he only requires a minimal amount of time off," said his trainer, Todd Pletcher, "but he is definitely not going to make the Triple Crown." Jack Wolf of Starlight Racing, the owner of Algorithms, said, "It is very disappointing that he will have to miss the spring classics, but we look forward to having him back in late summer or early fall. This really is the best long term option for Algorithms."
