This "storybook horse"
that won the 2004 World Cup as a "surprise winner" (definite understatement) pulled up lame on a landing in the middle
of the Individual qualifying.
Vet reports are that
he has a bowed tendon.
He was the first of two
noteable horses to come up lame mid-course--see the Individual Final results about Chris Kappler in the silver-bronze jump-off.
He pulled a flexor tendon.
