Male Horses More Likely for Breakdowns?


Interesting story I read on Yahoo today aboout studies done on breakdowns.

Yahoo!: Study: Male horses have greater fatal injury rate

Not sure what to draw from some of that info.  Some of it is exactly the opposite of what we've heard for the last few years (especially noteworthy to me is that 2 year olds have the lowest rate of fatal injuries).  I wonder what this is going to mean for tracks going to synthetic or not going forward.

(MattG: I bumped this one to the front because it's sure to be a big issue for the industry going forward.)
