I do not see how pin firing would make him pain free while he is bowed so he can win a race.
I can see pin firing with the theory that you can reduce healing times (though most people now believe this really do not help) though.
A lame horse will not win them money.
And when you do get his race record it will not let you know when he bowed his tendon and such.
But, it is interesting information to have.
It is a much more dramatic story though, bowed tendon and pin firing.
If he did bow that leg, it either is not showing well in the photos or it was a pretty minor bow that was well taken care of.
I am glad someone who will feed him has him now. No horse deserves to look like that.
