Texas Red Set for Ultrasound


By Dick Downey

Texas Red looks nowhere near a return to the races on the eve of the Santa Anita Derby, but Keith Desormeaux remains optimistic in his comments.

“He’s doing great, his legs look great. We’re going to do an ultrasound tomorrow to make sure things are progressing nicely, and as long as they are, he’s going to remain here. If the doc thinks the horse might benefit more by going to the farm, then we’ll do that, but in my estimation, he’ll be staying here.”

Desormeaux seems to be treading water with Texas Red at this point.

“I would have liked to been part of the Santa Anita Derby festivities, but the horse is still here at Santa Anita," he said, "and his status hasn’t changed much."
