I'm looking at an off the track horse to take on as a project while my other horse is resting an injury for a few months. When I searched his pedigree it came up "pulled up in distress". What does that exactly mean?
Thanks for any insight!
Anybody can enter anything into that they want. Here is a better resource. I don't know why he pulled up but he ran back relatively soon and regularly after that so it couldn't have been too serious.

He probably was bleeding....got him on the Lasix list..
I guess bleeding is a possibility but every one of his lifetime starts were on lasix including the one in question. Plenty of horses have bled through lasix however.
