I visited The Pamplemousse in his stall at Santa Anita on Wednesday morning, and I found him heartily devouring his breakfast. In fact, he was enjoying his meal so much that he barely came up for air or to get a pat! He looked absolutely marvelous, though.
The Pamplemousse, whose racing career was sidelined in April just before the Santa Anita Derby -- costing him a chance at the Kentucky Derby -- has been recuperating very well according to trainer Julio Canani. Tentative plans call for a trip north for "The Mousse," where he could spend some time in the snow -- a remedy for tendon problems such as the one he suffered.
Stay tuned for updates!
