First, some background.

“Kid Klondike” retired from racing in October of 2006 after only his second start.  After bowing a tendon, Klondike’s owner and trainer decided that retiring their $90,000 3 year old investment would be a better option than rehabbing and running him again.

When he arrived at CANTER he was cocky and “On the muscle” (meaning very fit) and bordering on mean and dangerous in the stall.  KlondikeHe was looking at three months of stall rest for his injury followed by several months of controlled turnout (small, flat areas).  Once he let down from his racing fitness, he was much more easily managed.

Klondike began work this past fall but had a minor setback when some tendon fibers in the injured leg became irritated.

This blog will chronicle his return to the real world of work.
