Chi­ro­prac­tic Helps Race Horses

From the May 29, 2003 issues of the Daily Rac­ing Forum and the John­son County Sun, comes a story of how a top level race horse, “Ten Most Wanted” was helped by chi­ro­prac­tic. The story reports that the day after the Ken­tucky Derby, he had been bumped sharply leav­ing the gate, putting his back out of align­ment. “He wouldn’t jog,” his trainer, Wally Dol­lase, remem­bered. “He had dis­placed his back about a half an inch.”

Dr. Herb War­ren, a vet­eri­nar­ian who worked on Ten Most Wanted said, “There was severe pres­sure on his spinal cord. His back was out of whack. He didn’t want to move behind.” This is where the chi­ro­prac­tor Dr. Dave Hand came in. Dr. Hand is a for­mer trainer who for more than a decade has been sought out by some of the top train­ers to work on their horses. Dur­ing the week lead­ing up to the Derby, Hand did adjust­ments on four horses — Atswha­timtalkn­bout, Scrimshaw, Ten Cents a Shine, and Ten Most Wanted. Hand worked on Touch Gold prior to his vic­tory in the 1997 Bel­mont Stakes, but his most con­sis­tent client has been Dol­lase, for whom Hand has treated the likes of Grade 1 stakes win­ners Deputy Com­man­der, Jewel Princess, and Windsharp.

He’s good at what he does,” trainer Wally Dol­lase said. “I call him in if I think a horse needs him. He puts a horse back in place with his own arms. He adjusts the back to where it’s nor­mal.” Accord­ing to Dol­lase, “He is mov­ing fine now, and Ten Most Wanted is sched­uled to run in the June 7 Bel­mont Stakes. One of the rea­sons he will be there is the long-​term care he has received from an equine chiropractor”

The Daily Rac­ing Forum arti­cle was writ­ten before the run­ning of the Bel­mont stakes. The chi­ro­prac­tic care that Ten Most Wanted received must have been effec­tive as the horse fin­ished sec­ond in the Bel­mont Stakes.
