Life Is Good Scheduled For Surgery To Remove Hind Ankle Chip

Undefeated 3-year-old Life Is Good will miss this year’s Triple Crown series, trainer Bob Baffert confirmed to Thoroughbred LA Radio on Sunday morning. The Into Mischief colt, the shortest-price individual favorite ever in March’s Kentucky Derby Future Wager, was “a little bit off behind” after a six-furlong workout at Santa Anita on Saturday.

According to XBTV‘s Millie Ball, Life Is Good was diagnosed with a chip in his hind ankle. The colt has been scheduled for surgery under the renowned Dr. Larry Bramlage on Friday at Rood & Riddle Equine Hospital in Lexington, Ky.

“He’ll be fine, he’ll be back,” Baffert told Thoroughbred LA Radio. “It wasn’t anything serious, but it’s enough that he’ll need some time off.”
