Lost in the Fog's condition unchanged


Results from Thursday's examination of Eclipse sprint champion Lost in the Fog revealed little change in his condition, with three cancerous tumors still present.

The tumors had been discovered in Lost in the Fog two weeks earlier in an examination at the University of California-Davis after he had been sent there with a suspected case of colic.

Veterinarians from UC Davis gave Lost in the Fog an ultrasound scan and did blood work on him Thursday at the equine hospital at Golden Gate Fields.

Lost in the Fog had been receiving dexamethasone, a hormone, in hopes of reducing the size of the tumors.

"There's really not much to say. Everything is pretty much as it was," trainer Greg Gilchrist said from Del Mar on Friday. "Yesterday, we scanned the horse again, and, really, there's no change. Things are no better. Things are no worse. Everything's pretty much status quo."

Gilchrist said that he and Lost in the Fog's owner, Harry Aleo, would consult with veterinarians, "and we'll discuss our options."
