    Big Brown's racing career over after hoof injury - Yahoo

    Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner Big Brown's racing career is over after injuring his right front foot during a workout at Aqueduct on Monday.

    Trainer Rick Dutrow said the 3-year-old colt, who was preparing for the Breeders' Cup Classic on Oct. 25, appeared to kick himself while working on the turf course at Aqueduct with stablemate Kip Deville. Big Brown was able to complete the six-furlong work when Dutrow noticed blood coming out of the foot.

    No longer useful, so put out to pasture. Seems strangely familiar to something, but I can't put my finger on it.

    Not to worry.

    Big Brown will go to the company doctor who will give him a bottle of 400 mg ibuprofen and a pat on the bottom and put him back to work.

    Sounds like a safety bar-b-que is in order.
