The TDN Topic is a new feature for the TDN, designed to examine a topic in racing from several different angles, and then seek comment from our readers. In each TDN Topic, we ask people with different perspectives—from both inside and outside the sport—to comment on a hot-button issue. Today, we start with whipping.

Black Caviar Brother Succumbs to Laminitis

Black Caviar (Aus)’s 2-year-old half-brother by Redoute’s Choice (Aus), affectionately known as “Jimmy”, was euthanized this morning at the Melbourne University Veterinary Hospital in Werribee, Victoria. The colt, purchased by BC3 Thoroughbreds for an Australian record of A$5 million at Inglis Easter earlier this year, was suffering from laminitis that is believed to have stemmed from an adverse reaction to antibiotics used to treat a spider bite in November. Inglis CEO Mark Webster revealed the news this morning on his blog, stating: “As a lover of all horses, but in particular the magnificent Thoroughbred, it is with a heavy heart that I write this post. At approximately 11am this morning the Redoute's Choice --Helsinge 2-year-old colt known as Jimmy was euthanized on humane grounds at the Melbourne University Veterinary Hospital in Werribee Victoria. Jimmy was suffering from laminitis, a painful hoof condition that impacts on the mobility of horses. It is believed the laminitis developed after suffering an adverse reaction to antibiotics, which were being used to treat his swollen leg when admitted to the Hospital in early November. Jimmy became a household name after setting a new record price as yearling at the 2013 Inglis Easter Yearling Sale reaching $5 million to the bid of BC3 Thoroughbreds. As the younger sibling to Champions Black Caviar and All Too Hard [Aus], we all had great expectations for Jimmy on the track and in the breeding barn. This is a very sad outcome for all involved. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the staff at the Werribee Hospital for their dedicated care, in particular to Dr Chris Whitton and his colleagues who monitored Jimmy throughout the Christmas period.”
