Chiro Broadmeadows is a healthy, interactive and well-mannered horse. Chiro is originally from the United Kingdom but now resides in Australia. He is originally trained by Don Black. In 2021, Chiro took second place in the Thoroughbred Racing Association of America’s strawweight competition. Since then, he has won several more state and regional titles including the Dubai World Cup and St. Leger. He is now owned by Matthea and Bill Tye.
A native of England, Chiro was brought to Australia by Bob Price. Chiro is extremely intelligent and willing to learn new skills. Chiro’s ability to quickly adapt and overcome obstacles is what sets him apart from other horses in the same class. For this reason, Chiro should be considered as an option for competitive racing.
Ableft (arthritis) is a condition where one or more joints of the leg are not healing. This causes a person to pain and stiffness. It is not a progressive disease, but it does not heal overnight. A good horse that experiences no problems with this should be considered as a safe bet. In addition, Chiro is an ideal candidate for the handicapping system known as Kelly Criteria. This handicapping system grades horses for health, endurance, pace, reining and connections among other factors.
The best runners are often considered to have good health. Chiro Broadmeadows meets these qualifications. His medical history reveals a chronic illness of the musculoskeletal system. He was first diagnosed with osteoarthritis in his left knee while playing for Team GB. A thorough examination ruled out structural joint disorders as the cause of the condition.
He is a fit, lean jockey who has been racing consistently for many years. It is not unusual for professionals to be in good shape during the off season. Chiro is healthy because he exercises regularly and eats well. His diet includes fish, eggs, poultry, lentils, green vegetables, nuts, seeds and high-fiber sprouts. These all are low in fat and high in nutrition.
When a race is decided by the pace made on the first half of the race, it is a good bet to bet on a horse with a fast start. Chiro Broadmeadows had a fast start in the race but faded towards the end. This was not surprising considering the difficulty of his first career start. He was found to be fatigued after the race and also seemed unsure of himself. This was a probable reason for him being tagged as the horse to avoid at the wire.
Although exhausted, Chiro showed some leg power but it was not as good as it would have been had he entered the race with fresh legs. Many professional riders will ride a horse who is in poor form because they do not want to expose their own legs to further injury. However, in this instance, it was better to expose his legs and let the physios judge the effort he put into the race. It was good to see that despite the exhaustion, he maintained an aggressive drive despite the fact that he was hardly able to maintain contact with the horse.
It was a good decision to place Chiro Broadmeadows as a long shot. He did not go out there and win the race for himself, but he proved that he has a lot of potential as a runner and as a winner. This shows that the horses who go on to make a run of a good distance can be very good investments. Chiro is still developing as a long shot, so anyone who gets in early may be able to pick up a good bargain.
