Desert Party injured, out indefinitely

Desert Party injured, out indefinitely

Kentucky Derby also-ran Desert Party will have surgery for a bone chip in his left front ankle and will be sidelined indefinitely.
The 3-year-old colt owned by Dubai ruler Sheik Mohammed finished 14th behind Mine That Bird in Saturday's Derby at Churchill Downs.
Godolphin racing manager Simon Crisford said on Tuesday he didn't expect the injury to be career threatening.
The chip was discovered during X-rays taken after the Derby. Crisford said he wasn't sure when the injury occurred, but that it contributed to the horse's poor showing.
Crisford said he hoped Desert Party can return to the track during the second half of the year and continue to run in 2010 as a 4-year-old.
Desert Party was purchased for $2.1 million.
