Causes of death in racehorses over a 2 year period.
Necropsies were performed on 496 horses that had a fatal injury or illness at a California racetrack during the period February 20th 1990 to March 1st 1992. The primary cause of death was categorisedExpand

Tooth enamel biomineralization in extant horses: implications for isotopic microsampling
Abstract Isotopic analyses of tooth enamel from fossil equids are increasingly being used to reconstruct paleoclimatic and paleoenvironmental conditions. However, the accuracy of theseExpand

Fatal musculoskeletal injuries incurred during racing and training in thoroughbreds.
OBJECTIVE To characterize and contrast data from Thoroughbreds that incurred a fatal musculoskeletal injury (FMI; injury resulting in death or euthanasia) during racing or training and data from allExpand

Osteonal structure in the equine third metacarpus.
In studying the flexural fatigue properties of the equine third metacarpal (cannon) bone, we previously found that the dorsal region was weaker monotonically, but more fatigue resistant, than theExpand

Hoof accelerations and ground reaction forces of Thoroughbred racehorses measured on dirt, synthetic, and turf track surfaces.
OBJECTIVE To compare hoof acceleration and ground reaction force (GRF) data among dirt, synthetic, and turf surfaces in Thoroughbred racehorses. ANIMALS 3 healthy Thoroughbred racehorses. Expand

High-speed exercise history and catastrophic racing fracture in thoroughbreds.
OBJECTIVE To investigate the relation between several racing speed history characteristics and risk of fatal skeletal injury (FSI) in racing Thoroughbreds. ANIMALS 64 Thoroughbreds euthanatizedExpand

Changes in canine cortical and cancellous bone mechanical properties following immobilization and remobilization with exercise.
The purpose of this study was to assess cortical and cancellous bone responses to unilateral limb immobilization and, subsequently, to remobilization with exercise, in a young adult canine model.Expand

The epidemiology of Thoroughbred racehorse injuries
Abstract Musculoskeletal injuries have a huge, adverse effect on the Thoroughbred racehorse industry. Although fatal musculoskeletal injuries have a low prevalence, many lameness conditions have aExpand

Osteon pullout in the equine third metacarpal bone: effects of ex vivo fatigue.
An important concept in bone mechanics is that osteons influence mechanical properties in several ways, including contributing to toughness and fatigue strength by debonding from the interstitialExpand

Collagen fiber organization is related to mechanical properties and remodeling in equine bone. A comparison of two methods.
We studied birefringence as an indicator of collagen fiber orientation in the diaphysis of the equine third metacarpal bone. We had previously shown that tissue from the lateral cortex of this boneExpand
