Kentucky Derby entry Archarcharch retired with fractured front leg
FAYETTEVILLE, ARK. - Archarcharch was retired from racing Sunday after the colt suffered a fractured left front leg during the Kentucky Derby. Surgery revealed additional cartilage damage.
Owner Bob Yagos could tell something was different about the horse’s stride after the Arkansas Derby winner stumbled out of the gate on the way to a 15th-place finish.
It wasn’t until five minutes after the race that Yagos learned his horse had been taken from the track in an ambulance. “That was like somebody had just stabbed you in the heart,” he said.
