“Something Bothering” Father Patrick

At this point, trainer Jimmy Takter is looking for some answers with Father Patrick. He has gone on the record as saying that he will probably be consulting some specialists due to the recent sub-par performances from the accomplished $2.6-million career earner.

Takter has told that after back-to-back dull efforts he plans on having the two-time divisional champion examined by veterinarians. Takter said late Sunday afternoon that while he is still unsure of where he will take the four-year-old trotter, he believes there is an unresolved issue.
