Lost In Time, the 2017 Dan Patch 2-Year-Old Pacing Colt of the Year, has been sidelined from racing due to a broken sesamoid. Lost In Time underwent surgery on Monday.
While sesamoid injuries in racehorses are serious and can be career-ending, many horses return to race successfully. The most common type of sesamoid fracture is that of the proximal sesamoid bones (PSB), a pair of small, nodular bones located at the back of the fetlock.
Lost In Time won the 2017 Metro Pace for trainer and co-owner Jim Mulinix. Jimmy Takter took over training the colt late last year.The colt was scheduled to compete in the Meadowlands Pace.
Standardbred Canada's Trot Insider has reported that Adriano Sorella plans to supplement his horse Jimmy Freight to the Meadowlands Pace. The entry box for the eliminations closes Tuesday (July 3), with Sorella required to write a check for $60,000 to supplement Jimmy Freight, who finished third against older horses in the Mohawk Gold Cup, which was contested the same night as the North America Cup. Jimmy Freight was not eligible to the NA Cup.
"You could wait an entire lifetime to have a nice horse, you might as well take the chances given to you," said Sorella, who won the 2013 Little Brown Jug with Vegas Vacation.
In addition, NA Cup consolation winner Courtly Choice will be supplemented to the Pace. He is trained by Blake MacIntosh.
