this is the 3rd horse we have had break a coffin bone in the last.... hmmmm... 4yrs I believe. We also have my broodmare at home who tore her XYZ ligament 5yrs ago, and a trotter who shattered his leg in a race last year.

Its just not pretty racing here....

Kevin Cummings just went down the other night, luckily he was not seriously hurt just bumps, bruises, and scrapes. And the horse was caught right after the race by Ron Beback Jr and my cousin who were both driving in that race. Luckily when he went down the lines got wraped on the bike, so the horse couldnt get tangled in them.

I always wanted to try driving! I did fun driving (like big carts in NYC), but it was when I was a kid. May be one day....

That is so cool! I have never been to a driving race, don't they call the horses 'pacers'? I used to ride in a cart in santa Fe TX when my uncle gave people carriage rides. He let me drive it once. That was a long time ago though.

Wow this thread makes me miss the track. I grew up with Standardbreds in New Jersey. It's a great sport. Lucky you getting to do what you love! I miss it /

ChevyPrincess pacing is when the horses are moving laterally, trotting is diagonally. You can race pacers or trotters.

thanks! I didnt have a clue. My papa watched T.V and on of those races came on and he said they were pacers for the way they ran. I just didn't know they did trotting too XD
