'Song' working out with special shoe

April 29, 1996|By NEW YORK TIMES NEWS SERVICE

LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Although the handlers of Unbridled's Song vTC believe the bruise to the inside heel of his left front foot will not compromise his performance in Saturday's Kentucky Derby, they will continue to treat the foot cautiously.

Unbridled's Song will wear a bar shoe through his final pre-Derby workout the middle of this week.

A bar shoe has a metal bar across the opening for protection.

Unbridled's Song, the Derby favorite, will be fitted with a conventional horseshoe for the race.
