He could potentially race again

Fox said Battle of Hastings would initially recuperate at his Fox Stables near Lexington, after which he would be sent to House’s Chestnut Farm near Versailles, Ky. to be turned out.

In spite of Battle of Hasting’s injury, Fox said he’s thankful the situation wasn’t worse, and stressed again how overwhelmed he was by the professionalism in which it was handled.

“I even sent a message to the Kentucky Horse Racing Commission giving them recognition,” he said. “They really stepped up. The role of the outriders, the ambulance crew, and the veterinarians, it’s all taken for granted…if something doesn’t go well, we all jump all over them, but they really did great, and we’re so grateful for them.”
