Chadds Ford Stable's Union Rags (Dixie Union), last-out winner of the GI Belmont S., is expected to make a full recovery from what has been deemed a "small lesion of his high suspensory." According to a release from Dr. Kathleen Anderson, an ultrasound conducted July 10 suggested that the injury was brand new and most likely occurred in a July 6 workout at his Fair Hill base (five furlongs in a bullet 1:00.60). "The prognosis for full return to racing is excellent, and he is scheduled to undergo treatment and therapy immediately with the goal of keeping his options open for 2013," Dr. Anderson's statement continued. "Needless to say, his owners, trainer and all connections are extremely disappointed with this turn of events, but we believe that this early diagnosis and treatment combined with rest will ultimately favor his full recovery and future success." Winner of the GI Champagne S. and a tough-luck second to Hansen (Tapit) in the GI Breeders' Cup Juvenile, Union Rags found more trouble when seventh in the GI Kentucky Derby May 5 ahead of his Belmont victory.
