An update on the status of the 43 abandoned Thoroughbreds in Mercer County was provided by Rusty Ford, spokesperson for the Kentucky state veterinary department, at The Jockey Clubs Welfare and Safety of the Racehorse Summit at Keeneland. Ford was asked to address the some 200- people in attendance due to the high-profile nature of the situation.Ford said that the state Tuesday morning has received permission to move six of the horses to the Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation facility in the state. Those six were deemed to be the priorities because they were either starving or severely underweight. The rest of the horses will remain at the current location and will be cared for daily as officials try to determine ownership of the horses and if there will be any criminal charges filed.Ford said that a group of veterinarians visited the farm yesterday and they categorized the horses as follows: Three were severely underweight; 10 were underweight; 14 were of suitable weight; eight were overweight; and eight were of proper weight.The Mercer County sheriff is evaluating the situation with attorneys to see if criminal charges will be filed against Chuck Borell and/or his daughter Maria Borell. The horses had met the criteria of the state veterinarians as being abandoned in early June. The horses had been in the care of or owned by Chuck Borell and Maria Borell at the leased farm in Mercer County, some 30 miles southwest of Lexington.The horses for the last three weeks have received elevated care daily, Ford said. They have received care since early June, when this situation was brought to our attention.When told that recent reports suggested that the state agricultural department was just now looking into this, Ford said that was not the case.Theres a lot of misinformation out there, he said. This first came to our attention on June 3, and the horses have been getting care. The volunteers who have helped these horses are the ones who deserve a lot of credit. The condition of the horses today is much improved.Ford said that only three of the horses would be considered seriously underweight, but none of the horses are in a life-threatening situation. He said one horse has a serious hoof abscess.The question facing authorities now is the ownership of the horses. Ford said that a number of people have come forward saying that they are the owners of the horses and want to take care of them.Some of the horses are reportedly owned by Maria Borell, who trained Runhappy to win the Breeders Cup sprint for owner Jim McIngvale but was fired the day after in a dispute. Borell has trained horses on the Kentucky circuit.Chuck Borell is reported as the person who leased the farm in Mercer County, with the horses under his care. Matt Irwin Jersey .

From filmmaker Nanette Burstein (On the Ropes), The Price of Gold revisits the saga that rocked the figure skating world ahead of the 1994 Lillehammer Olympic Winter Games: the assault on Nancy Kerrigan, and the plot that led its way back to her rival Tonya Harding. Lewis Hamilton has often cited his respect for Ayrton Senna as a man and a racing driver. With that in mind, its interesting to make a comparison between events in Malaysia last Sunday and those following the 1989 Canadian Grand Prix.In a race run under atrocious conditions (it would have been stopped today or, at the very least, run under a Safety Car when the teeming rain was at its worst), Senna had given us an absolutely exquisite display, running slicks for many laps at a time when others could not manage on full wets. Nineteen (19!) of the 26 starters did not make it to the finish, several of them finishing in the wall.Sennas performance that day ranked among the best of many in a spectacular career and merited the victory coming his way as he completed lap 66 with three to go. Then, without warning, his Honda V10 failed in a cloud of smoke similar to the moment of Hamiltons demise last weekend. Senna pulled over to the left, parked the McLaren on the grass, climbed out and walked away without so much as a backward glance.I have to tell you that not only did the press room cheer, but one or two of our more excitable North American cousins jumped to their feet and applauded. To be fair, this was not so much a dislike of Senna as a reflection of weariness with McLarens consistent success, 1989 coming off the back of total domination the previous year. It was also the first time that neither McLaren finished in 1989, Alain Prost having stopped with broken suspension earlier in the race.Senna pushed through a phalanx of photographers assembling at the end of the pit lane in preparation for the finish of the race and made his way brisklyy to the McLaren office.dddddddddddd He spoke to no one, but his thoughts could be imagined.This was Sennas second retirement in a row (an electrical misfire having cost the lead in Phoenix two weeks before). Now, a golden opportunity to gain nine points (awarded for first place) had literally gone up in smoke and left Senna two points behind Prost in the championship.It would get worse. At the next race in France, Sennas differential broke as he accelerated off the line, the race being won by Prost, a result the Frenchman would repeat at Silverstone on a day when a sizeable number in the crowd cheered as Senna, struggling with his brakes, spun out of the lead and into the gravel at Becketts. Prost now led by 20 points.Even allowing for a complicated scoring system in which a driver could count only his best 11 results (from 16 races), Senna would never get back in front. But at no time did he complain. Or, at least, not to the media.You can be sure, however, that Osamu Goto would have received an earful in Montreal as Ayrton let Hondas project leader know about his views on the failure. But there was not a word of dissention reported in either the specialist or national press during the following weeks.In fact, the only complaints in public would come from Prost once he had decided to leave McLaren for Ferrari in 1990 and let it be known that, in his view, Senna was receiving priority treatment from Honda. Which is an interesting twist on todays stupid suggestion that Mercedes is somehow out to knobble Lewis. ' ' '
