In a video posted online, the Kentucky Derby Winner, Justify, appears to be quite uncomfortable the morning after his big win at the Kentucky Derby. The video is causing some internet outrage. Kim H. commented on the video, “Dead lame. All I could think is why Baffert even had him on parade instead of on ice and with the vet.” Watch the video below and pay close attention to his left hind leg. It’s important to note that Justify is walking on what appears to be rocks, and these horses go through intense soundness checks before being allowed to run in the Kentucky Derby.
I’ve seen something as simple as a hoof abscess completely cripple a horse for a short period of time. I hope Justify will be back to feeling 100% soon! Share this on Facebook if you do too!
