“Typo” is a dark bay gelding that’s recently arrived from Penn National’s New Start for Horses program. He is 4 year old that retired after only eight lifetime starts. While his career started out strong, he developed a wind issue toward the end of the career that ultimately retired him. Sound and otherwise athletic, we’re remaining optimistic that, like many wind issues in racing, it won’t affect his potential for a second career.
Typo was scoped by our vet on 4/17/17 and is going in to the UEA clinic on 4/21/17 to see if he’ll be a candidate for throat surgery as it looks like he has one paralyzed arytenoid (fairly common) that would benefit from removal.
