View Full Version : Silver Timber

Yesterday in the Shakertown at Keeneland, Silver Timber was vanned off after the race.

Am a huge fan of his, as he ran in company a couple years back with the horse I owned a piece of. ST broke away from the NY bred ranks when acquired by Michael Dubb, placed in Chad Brown's hands, with Julian Leparoux up, and became a multiple stakes winner, making it twice to the Breeders' Cup.

Have read this morning that Brown thinks he will be ok. Would love any more updates.

Sounds as if it's not too bad...from the DRF:

Silver Timber has puncture wound

Silver Timber escaped serious injury here Saturday when attempting to defend his title in the Grade 3 Shakertown Stakes. The 8-year-old gelding, ridden by Leparoux, was pulled up in distress and vanned off the turf course shortly after finishing sixth.

“He has a puncture wound on his hind leg,” trainer Chad Brown said. “Luckily, I think he’s okay. We just have to heal him up. It’s definitely not a career-ending injury, but it’s something that’s going to take a little time.”

Silver Timber, a New York-bred, has earned $712,036 from 39 career starts and not only won the 2010 Shakertown but also won the Woodford Stakes at each of the last two Keeneland fall meets.

Thanks for that CVPeg; it's good to read that he should be all good soon.
